14 November 2003 | by leif.hellstromSee all my reviews

This is pretentious drivel of the worst kind. The plot revolves around evil multinational companies doing nasty things, for reasons which are not quite clear, and some convoluted political plotting. Against these forces of darkness are ranged a journalist and a pilot who happens to see some suspicious goings-on. The whole script is not only ridiculous but downright juvenile in its attempts to be politically correct and socially relevant.

To confuse things further, the title (meaning Flight Level 450) has really nothing to do with the contents of the film, but only refers to a casual reference at the very end of it.

Since the film-makers are unable to explain things on screen, the film begins with a narrative introducing the different characters and ends with another narrative wrapping the story up.

In addition, the whole film is very poorly made. Direction, acting and the so-called special effects are all quite terrible. The one actor who does a credible job is Lars Amble, but he only has a small role.

This is a true turkey if ever there was one.
