As the plane levels out from the dive down to 8000 ft, the cabin experiences weightlessness. This, however, would only occur if the plane began to dive after a quick ascent, not from quickly pulling up. The people in the cabin would actually be forced down into their seats due to the increased G force. See more »
I hate flying. The lines. The crowds. The delays...
I always kinda liked it. Six hours. One seat. Nobody can get to you.

Non-Stop is an awesome action movie with a great classic mystery story!
"Non-Stop" is an action mystery thriller starring Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore and is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (Unknown, Orphan). The story takes place 30,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean inside of a plane traveling from New York to London. Bill (Liam Neeson) is a Federal Air Marshall with a troubled past. He is assigned to accompany the international flight when things take a turn for the worst and there is an apparent hijacking of the plane. The catch: Bill is being framed. Don't worry though, I haven't spoiled anything you couldn't find in the trailer already. But, while it might sound like you have heard this plot 100 times before just in different settings, you may be in fact incorrect.
Overall, I actually quite enjoyed this movie, which is not something I was so sure about when I went into it. This movie keeps audiences guessing throughout and is almost like "Whodunit" on a plane. This carries the movie well, advancing the plot and allowing audiences to discover new leads alongside of Bill. You cannot assume anything with "Non-Stop". It does a great job of building tensions and increasing anxiety as the minutes tick by, and as with any mystery you are never sure what is around the next corner.
With better than expected plot and better than expected technical prowess, Non-Stop is a great movie for action fans who want something a little bit more!
