Storyline

After a plane crash, a young therapist, Claire, is assigned by her mentor to counsel the flight's five survivors. When they share their recollections of the incident -- which some say include an explosion that the airline claims never happened -- Claire is intrigued by Eric, the most secretive of the passengers. Just as Claire's professional relationship with Eric -- despite her better judgment -- blossoms into a romance, the survivors begin to disappear mysteriously, one by one. Claire suspects that Eric may hold all the answers and becomes determined to uncover the truth, no matter the consequences. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

When Eric runs out of his apartment irritated by barking dog, you can see a car parked next to his house. It's actually an old Russian "Zhiguli VAZ 2104" produced by VAZ car factory (Volzhski Avtomobilny Zavod) from the middle of '80 till present day. See more »

Goofs

After Claire leaves Norman's apartment one of the passengers tries to keep her from driving away. The first screen shot from inside the car shows her pulling away. The camera angle then cuts immediately to a shot from outside the vehicle and shows the car stationary for a split second just before Claire pulls away. The editing is off by about a second.

Horror...yeah,right!
22 December 2008 | by (ENGLAND) – See all my reviews

First of all let's clear one thing...this is not in any way a horror movie...This is in best way mystery,drama and a little romance all blended in together.

Now about the movie...first the acting.Anne Hathaway carries this movie with a little help of Patrick Wilson.They are great together and they have a good chemistry.The rest of the cast is solid,but nothing more than that ( since the Hathaway and Wilson are 2 central figures of this movie ).

I must say that I was pretty bored with this movie and I wonder why have I watched.It must have been mainly because of cast,and although I have seen some of the negative reviews on IMDb,I decided to watch it anyway...This movie is really boring and the big twist at the end of the movie doesn't have any impact or shock value like the director probably intended...If you've watched more than ten movies in your life,or if you have watched,for example sixth sense,or similar movies,you will see this from mile away...

So in any case this movie probably wouldn't be seen by many people if not for its strong cast...and this movie has one really,really big and essential problem...ITS LACK OF ORIGINALITY...

four out of ten just for good performances...
