An awesome, unpredictable thriller - WOW!!! (by scaraco)
I saw this movie in Boston at an advance screening. I had only seen the trailer once online. It looked pretty good, but I thought I'd have the movie all figured out within the first 15 minutes. Boy, was I wrong! This movie was absolutely awesome. Brilliant performances by Jodie Foster and Peter Sarsgaard who also gave a great performance in 1999's "Boys Don't Cry" . None of the movie was too far-fetched; the cinematography was excellent, and I really enjoyed it overall. It had just the right mix of suspense, thrills, and even a little comic relief. Nice to see a movie <more>
can be great without a whole lot of profanity in fact, I don't recall the "f" word being used in this movie at all, but I could be wrong . It would have been great to see this movie in IMAX but it still gets my vote for one of the best movies of the year.
I don't usually recommend movies, and I have seen quite a few this year, such as Batman Begets, Fantastic Four, and others. But I believe my favorite movie I have seen this year is Flightplan, which I just saw tonight.Jodie Foster plays a woman whose husband has just died. The opening scenes give you the feel that this movie might play out as a spy thriller, but then you fast forward to the foreground. In the beginning, she is viewing the body of her husband before the casket is closed for the last time, and put on the flight Jodie Foster is on.She boards that flight with her daughter, <more>
and in the course of the flight, she falls asleep. When she awakens, her daughter is nowhere to be found, and then her daughter's name is not on the passenger manifest list. No one saw the daughter board with Jodie Foster.And so it begins.You think that Jodie Foster really had a daughter, and then the movie leads you to believe that she was just imagining the daughter, and that she is on the verge of nervous breakdown pending the onsetting grief from the death of her husband.The remainder of the motion picture is dedicated to her search for the daughter, small glimmers of hope that she is not crazy that her daughter might be real , the quenching of those glimmers, and her mental and emotional battle throughout the flight to maintain her sanity.Then, more begins to unfold on that airplane which transcends her search for a daughter who may have never existed to begin with .Topnotch casting, expert cinematography, engaging scriptwriting, and intense musical scoring all combine to bring you one of the most impacting movies you have seen in a long, long time, a taut thriller which will leave you reverberating with its resounding echoes long after the final credits have rolled.Very emotionally satisfying - it will draw you closer to those whom you love, and remind you of what is really important.
"A breathless thrill ride ..." (by signinstranger)
In FLIGHTPLAN, Jodie Foster solidifies her reputation as one of the finest actresses working today with a stunning portrait of a woman who moves from despair to ultimate triumph, on the way by turns showing a brave face for her daughter, driven to desperation to passengers and crew, and finally reaching within her resources to defeat the villains.The plot setup is already familiar from the trailer and endless message boards on IMDb. A woman taking a flight from Berlin to the U.S. becomes distraught when her daughter vanishes and no one acknowledges that her daughter ever existed. Critics have <more>
claimed this is a blatant ripoff of Hitchcock's 1937 classic, THE LADY VANISHES, which is nonsense. The only real points of congruence are the daughter, Julia, drawing on the window no, she doesn't write "Froy" and the denial that someone was ever on board. Indeed, in THE LADY VANISHES, Miss Froy is replaced by a lookalike; not so here. Instead we have a taut thriller that manages to maintain its suspense even when the third act unmasks the truth and the audience finally catches up with what's really going on. Director Robert Schwentke keeps the story in motion even though it's mostly tied down to a single albeit multi-layered set. Solid support from Sean Bean and Peter Sarsgaard, but it is Foster's bravura acting that really shines.Also worth noting is the witty title sequence.Extremely well done. For the E! crowd: "A breathless thrill ride that will have you gasping and cheering all the way to the explosive climax."
Just when we thought we had enough suspense this year with the airline thriller Red Eye, along comes another that brings some heavy competition. Hitchcock fans will be delighted to know that German director Robert Schwentke has made a movie with a story just about as good as some of Hitchcock's - one that keeps them on the edge of their seats, and seems to keep the guessing game going until the end.Jodie Foster Panic Room plays Kyle Pratt, an airplane designer whose husband apparently fell off their roof and died recently. She and her daughter, Julia Marlene Lawston , are relocating <more>
from Germany to New York City, having to transport her deceased husband with them on board a massive double-decker airplane she designed. Kyle has been having a few delusions of her husband still being alive, but she always comes to her senses and realizes that he's not. But when she falls asleep during the flight and wakes up to find her daughter missing, she becomes alarmed and proceeds to look for Julia.How many places could she be, right? That's the question everyone on board is asking. But when the Captain Sean Bean finds out that no one saw Kyle's daughter on board, that she's been through a lot of stress, and her daughter's boarding pass cannot be accounted for - he starts to think Kyle is mentally disturbed. As the flight goes on, he is informed that Julia apparently died along with Kyle's husband - pointing to what looks like a troubled marriage and a suicidal husband taking their daughter with him off the roof. Is Kyle imagining her daughter is still alive too? The entire crew and all the passengers seem to think so, particularly one man named Carson Peter Sarsgaard, The Skeleton Key , who proceeds to ask all the hard questions that she doesn't want to hear.Even though 99% of the movie takes place on board an airplane, the film never ceases to entertain. Foster gives us a riveting performance, making sure we can see the passionate look in her eyes that she is absolutely convinced her daughter is alive and that she's willing to go to great lengths to find her. She tackles an Arab man, breaks airline rules, enters restricted areas, etc. She drools, she claws...well not really. But she's definitely one mother you don't want to mess with.This film does a good job at depicting the post 9/11 atmosphere one gets when riding an airplane, everything from undercover air marshals to passengers being wary of Arabs. It also reminds us of how annoying airplane flights can be, with hyperactive kids acting up right in front of you, or snobby passengers who say things like, "It's not like she lost her Palm Pilot." By the middle of the film, most of the passengers are just as patronizing, as they clap when Kyle is escorted back to her seat after causing a stir.It has its share of unique cinematography, with obscure camera angles like a sideways shot beneath an airplane landing , but other seemingly pointless slow-motion shots that don't add much to the scene. But most of that doesn't really take away from the story and the wonderful performances the actors give.The movie does raise a few unanswered questions ones I can't ask here without spoiling the plot , but they're easily forgivable. Is the film really that good? Well, it depends on how one views it. If one is expecting an original story, he/she will likely come out disappointed. However, it remains enjoyable if one just sees it simply as a story that, while not original, is a story well-told.Dan Geer MovieLegacy.com
Expect to enjoy this movie very much! The plot is very well crafted and well thought out. Seems like most movies out there will have something about them that is unrealistic, but this is NOT true of Flightplan. Jodie Foster is amazing as always! The film is very authentic. There isn't anything that will leave you questioning if it would be like that in real life. When you watch this movie, you really feel like you are on the airplane way up in the air. It is a great thriller. It is suitable for all age groups. I don't see how anyone couldn't love this movie. Sean Bean also does a <more>
great job as the pilot. Go and watch it ASAP to find out what happened to Julia Pratt before someone else spoils it!
Thrill-packed movie that has you wondering even after you leave the theatre! Excellent casting job and every member of the cast delivers. Makes you want to hold on to your kids a little tighter - which is the true sign of a good movie - one that you leave thinking that could really happen!! You'll spend a lot of time holding your breath while watching this suspense filled movie. Go see this movie not only for the great plot but for the awesome special effects and excellent cinematography! Jodie Foster as always does an incredible job as the panic-stricken mother. Sean Bean puts in an <more>
excellent performance as the plane's captain trying to determine whether there ever was a child. Highly recommend this movie!
Kyle Pratt Jodie Foster has just lost her husband in a tragic accident in Berlin. So, now she and her six-year-old daughter, Julia are flying his body to New York for burial. The plane is an interesting aspect of the movie. It's a two-story state-of-the-art 474 aircraft, which she designed. Kyle doesn't get to give Julia the tour, because when she awakes from sleep, she isn't sitting next to her anymore. In a panic, Kyle goes to every passenger and flight attendant asking if they have seen her daughter. All of them say the same thing: "Your daughter wasn't with you when <more>
you got on board." After that, everyone becomes a suspect. Of course, what would you do if your daughter had come up missing like that? She notifies the captain played by Sean Bean of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and he has the flight attendants perform a search. A somewhat friendly air marshal played splendidly by Peter Sarsgaard of "Garden State" offers to help Kyle with the search. For some reason, Julia doesn't show up on the plane's manifest and her boarding pass is gone. Everyone around her thinks she is just losing her mind from grief of the loss of her husband. "Flightplan" is a first-rate movie. It's like "Panic Room" at 40,000 feet. It's a very taut psychology thriller. The suspense comes as often as bouts of turbulence. It will have you on the edge of your seat until its dramatic conclusion. And don't forget the movie's star, Jodie Foster. She shows why she has won two Oscars. She really pulls off the role of a grieving mother. Her emotion is so real her eyes are bloodshot throughout the entire movie. Jodie rocks! She'll punch, kick, or knock anyone out who gets in the way of the search of her child. Don't be fooled "Flightplan" and "Red Eye" are not this year's "Armageddon" and "Deep Impact." They are entirely different movies with different plots. Don't let anyone tell you differently.
Excellent! I saw this one opening night, and it is truly worth your time. It is very well-paced and thrilling. Jodie kicks ass - she always makes a movie worth the price of admission. I disagree with many other people who complain that it isn't feasible that no one would see her daughter. The girl was quiet and distressed, and most people don't pay attention to their surroundings or really care about what is going on either. Perhaps that was one of the major themes of the movie.Excellent ending also - I was concerned about the reviews, and now I'm glad I didn't pay any <more>
attention to them. I would definitely not pay attention to reviews if you are a Jodie Foster fan better than Panic Room , it is well worth seeing. 8/10
Intense, Interesting Airline Thriller That Has You Rooting For Jodie Foster's Character (by loralthevampire7)
Assuming that you've watched the trailer, read this...I saw "Flightplan" today with my dad and we both were pleasantly surprised. It requires a little suspension of disbelief, but Jodie Foster's performance is powerful enough and the director works with the script which is pretty well-written in the right way that you're constantly rooting for Jodie Foster's character, and her setbacks make your stomach sink. The actual revelation of what happened to Jodie Foster's character's daughter and what happens afterward will determine what you will think of the <more>
movie -- but you'll have to see it to find out. Throughout, it is incredibly intense, and it plays on most of your emotions. I was throughly entertained.
