What A Waste!
11 June 2003 | by (Charlotte, North Carolina USA) – See all my reviews

I love Joe Mantegna and I love crime/thriller movies. But this one sucked! It's a slow moving predictable film. The idea was dumb. The story was dumb. Much of the dialogue was dumb. The title was even dumb. Into "thin air?" What "thin air?" We knew where Lisa, the kidnapped woman, was and who she was with the whole time. No mystery there. Should have been an exciting thriller, but it wasn't.
