Compelling story
9 November 2014 | by (Muskegon, MI) – See all my reviews

I had never heard about this crash, or this story before this movie. We know that planes crash from time to time. Planes disappearing don't happen as often though. There were over 200 people on this flight. I am not sure why this didn't get the same national and international media coverage that the missing Malaysia Air flight got earlier this (2014)year.

The story has a good deal of interesting twists. Not the least of which is that the lead character, Nikola, feels guilty about the disappearance of her friend on this flight because of Nikola's own fear of flying that put her friend on this flight in the first place. I liked the device (with the escalator) that they used each time that Nikola did NOT get on her flight.

There are some technical errors and shortcomings in the production value. The film was made with a very limited budget and crew compared to Hollywood type of films. This is, however, a nice step forward in their (Producers) second release.

Set aside the production glitches and you will experience a very good movie with an extremely compelling story and items of import to today's flying public.
