Storyline

It's after midnight when Mel and Jules, two young women, return to LA from holidays in Mexico; they jump in a shuttle to head downtown. The other passengers are a nervous accountant and two frat boys, one who's been hitting on Jules. They're soon on unfamiliar, deserted streets - to avoid a traffic jam, says the driver - then things go from bad to worse. What's going on and where are they headed? Guns, knives, chains, a tattoo, and medication play in the resolution. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Jules' gag changes drastically after the shuttle crash. Before, it was very thick and wrinkled. But when she wakes up after the crash, it's barely wrapped around twice and perfectly smooth. See more »

10 days and I keep going back over the message
25 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I honestly sat down to watch Shuttle as more of a "time-killer" while I was waiting for one of my jobs to complete. I didn't expect a whole lot out of it and it is predictable in some parts. However, One of the previous posters stated that as the film progresses, "the screws slowly tighten" and that hit it on the head. For me, it was a little slow to start and the acting was "ok". Still, I continued watching and before I knew it, I couldn't walk away. The final twist really affected me as such that I'm still thinking about it 10 days later. I'd definitely recommend watching this film as it is very thought provoking, if for nothing else than awareness of an extremely obscure, yet serious issue.
