Trivia

Although the AALTO Air E-474 featured in this movie is a fictional aircraft, it does bear a strong resemblance in overall design to the real-life double-decker Airbus A380-800, with the movie's cockpit being nearly identical to the A380's. See more »

Panic Room but in the sky.
15 January 2006 | by (Gloucester, England) – See all my reviews

First off, I loved "Panic Room" and Jodie Foster's performance in it. When I first saw the looks of this film, I was very intrigued and thought it was going to be a "The Forgotten 2"....i was very wrong.

What starts off is with Jodie Foster playing a mourning mother after the death of her husband. Her and her daughter catch a flight to go stay with Foster's grandparents, however, after Jodie's character falls asleep, the daughter is gone....and to make matters worst, she is told that she never existed...

Sounds like a good premise eh? Well that's what infused me to go and see it. It starts off well but once the daughter goes missing, it went downhill. Jodie's performance throughout is good, not Oscar worthy but it is one of the highlights of the film (as well as the ever-cool Sean Bean.) Unfortunately I can't go into great depth of anything else of the story because of spoilers, but I will say that the ending plot is horrible, totally impossible and so therefore ruins the impact of the film and its good beginning.

There are also a lot of other things that annoy me about the film, to cut a long list short here are some examples: - a brilliant, new state of the art plane...and there's hardly anyone on board.

  • Foster's character, although confused and frustrated does get


annoying after a bit, and seeing as w're meant to identify and sympathise with her, is not a good thing.

  • The overall twist / ending plot is ridiculous, as I stated before.




My vote is 6/10....go see the film for the enjoyment of Jodie Foster and some thrills. however, do not expect a masterpiece..because this is FAR from great.
