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 »

Wasted potential turns out quite mediocre
14 January 2013 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

While flying to a concert in a small plane, a group of friends find themselves trapped in a nightmarish scenario that slowly kills them one-by-one and try to find a way to survive before the deadly creature finishes them off.

This was a pretty hard one to get a handle on as initially this one started out like a pretty boring entry with the uber-annoying jerks whining and complaining about anything and everything despite the fact that these are supposed to be friends that you see in some many of these kinds of films and then it actually comes together somewhat when it gets to the repeated attacks in the situation with the ominous storm-clouds makes for something interesting to happen, yet overall, that really doesn't do much to quell the beyond-ridiculous stupidity, senseless action and just plain gaps in logic that this one throws out. That's before it gets to the last ten minutes, which are so absurd it ends the film on such a sour note it's impossible to really like this one more, which is a shame since there's a lot of potential for something fun to happen here.

Rated R: Graphic Language and Violence.
