When Dale is on approach to Burbank he says he is intercepting the approach course ILS runway 8. He then reports just passing the middle marker which is only 0.4 miles from the airport and way too late for him to be intercepting the final approach course. He reports at 1300 feet (he should be at 1000), but the altimeter shows 620 feet which is below the airport altitude of 775. Also, the GPS shows him still 35.4 miles away from the airport. (Additionally, the entire approach is conducted in visual conditions where he'd be able to see the approaching towers from a long distance away.) See more »
This is a typical Sandra Bullock movie in which she plays a mousy (but profane) woman who is in trouble but finds a way to survive and be the hero. Sound familiar?
There are plenty of holes in this story. Things just don't add up and some of the suspense is a little corny. But - that suspense is very good. There is a lot of tension in this story which has strong paranoia running through it. The story starts off slow but kicks in pretty soon and stays that way, making it an involving movie for the viewer. That's why I give it a pretty good rating - the movie gets you involved in it. Bullock is more cute than annoying, which she normally is to me, so this is my highest-rated movie with her in it.
