Trivia

The registration number of the plane, C-MYZX, is false as the sequence has never been issued in Canada. See more »

Goofs

When Sara is cleared to climb to 10500 to avoid weather, the camera cuts to a shot of the altimeter. Based on the shot, the altimeter starts off showing them at 6000ft, which is about right. But the altimeter's hand is making an entire sweep about every two seconds, which indicates a rate of climb of around 30000 feet per minute. It is physically impossible for a twin engine turboprop to climb at that rate. See more »

I need an air-sickness bag!
19 October 2011 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

There have been many films, TV episodes which have taken place within a confined area, and the tension can become excruciating.

Lifeboat, Midnight (Doctor Who), are just a couple.

Altitude - the story of a half dozen teens trapped in a little plane - is NOT one.

The director who made this - Kaare Andrews - has made a 'teen' horror film that doesn't try hard to be any better than of the films it desperately rips off - the FINAL DESTINATION films, are just one franchise, which comes to mind.

The 'acting' horrendous. The 'plot?' Cheesecloth holds together better.

The 'technical' dialogue, spouted by 'pilot' Ms. Loundes, is akin to hearing a monkey explain quantum mechanics - and, just as believable.

This is one of those films, in which the 'director' seems SO hard to demonstrate his skills, and, has none, to begin with.

Bluish-green tinted movie? Seen it. Actors' eyes (annoyingly) colorized? Yawn - ENOUGH!

I kept praying this nightmare would end - and, by that, I mean 'crash' end. You do not care about ANYONE. It seems they all got cast by meeting Mr. Andrews, who 'promised' they'd 'star in' his big, Hollywood' movie.
