In the final few minutes when the cargo plan is in a nosedive, everyone in the plane is suspended in midair as if there's zero gravity when in fact they're heading towards the ground. The plane nosediving towards the ground would cause weightlessness for a brief period (this is exactly what the Vomit Comet does over the Gulf of Mexico), but what is shown in film is too long for that period of weightlessness.

This movie made no sense
16 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

This movie was awful and a massive waste of time. Physics is apparently non existent. The NSA guards are worse than storm-troopers at shooting. A huge cast but no character development at all and you get no idea of their names as well. The plot makes no sense at all. The acting is all over the place as well. Flying planes, flying cars, flying people and even a goddamn flying boat. Then there are people who definitely should have been killed but still they stay alive and then there are people who died and I don't know how. Overall, one word that perfectly describes this movie is 'pretentious'. It tries to define what's cool and what's not but fails miserably. I wanted to write a sarcastic post about this one, but this stupid movie doesn't deserve that. I hope everyone sues the crap out of the producers for creating such a godawful movie.
