When Kimberly has a violent premonition of a highway pileup she blocks the freeway, keeping a few others meant to die, safe...Or are they? The survivors mysteriously start dying and it's up to Kimberly to stop it before she's next.
Alex is boarding a plane to France on a school trip, when he suddenly gets a premonition that the plane will explode. Shortly after Alex, a group of students, and his teacher are thrown off the plane, to their horror, the plane does in fact explode. Alex must now work out Death's plan, as each of the survivors falls victim. Whilst trying to prevent the next death, Alex must also dodge the FBI, who believe that he caused the explosion.Written by
During the news report, it shows the simulation of the explosion,; the news anchor describes it as a "catastrophic explosion". The simulation shows a spray of red, representing the explosion that kills everyone on board. The theory that the plane exploded much earlier than in the premonition, which resulted in a different manner that the explosion occurred; the news report's simulation shows the explosion blowing at an angle into the cabin (and ultimately killing the group of students who get kicked off the plane, as well as those on the plane) is different compared to how it had occurred in the premonition when it was a wall of fire coming in straight from the front of the plane where the explosion occurred. If observed closely, during the plane's "real life explosion", the explosion originates on the left side, front end of the plane, while the trajectory of the explosion is through the cabin and out the right side of the plane, which creates the noticeable silhouette of the plane (showing that the fire did not travel through the cabin, but instead erupted across it). The explosion in the premonition had a trajectory angled outward and away from the passengers. Evidence in the film shows that there is no explosion angled toward the passengers in the premonition, and an explosion blowing away from them would cause a wall of fire as seen in the film. According to the news report in the film a main pump had blown up, creating the catastrophic explosion. This main pump is located at just the front of the left wing, where Engine #3 is located. When the pump explodes both in the premonition and in real life, the trajectory of the explosion differs in both scenes; the explosion's trajectory is angled outward and away from the passengers as they are thrown backward into their seats. If the explosion's trajectory were angled as it were in real life, its direction would come through the hole of the exposed fuselage and toward the passengers (allowing for a quicker death). The explosion is directed through and behind the cabin, and the explosion blows outward on the right side of the plane, with the explosion of Flight 180 from the airport's perspective, the explosion appearing on the right side of the plane creates the silhouette, showing that the explosion traveled through and across the cabin, rather than outward and away from it. The explosion on the left side is also much smaller than it is in the premonition, as the explosion blew to the right and behind, instead of outward in a forward direction. In the premonition, the direction of the explosion blows outward and away from the passengers. Evidence is shown when the explosion occurs as it tosses the passengers back into their seats, and the explosion moves toward them as a wall of fire, instead of with a trajectory angled at them, which is what the news report had shown. When the plane initially explodes from afar, there is a noticeable silhouette of the plane as the explosion occurs across the cabin and behind the plane. Evidence during the news report also shows, in the simulation, that the explosion had an angled trajectory at the passengers instead of away from them. This was not seen in the premonition and, instead of a wall of fire, it would have been a quick explosion blowing into the cabin. See more »
(at around 1h 24 mins) When Clear is in the car, she moves the lever all the way to the bottom which for an automatic would be 1st gear, yet when she hits the gas the car goes backward. See more »
This movie was frightening for one simple reason, it isn't afraid to go the route of talking about death, fate and if the inevitable is really unavoidable or if deaths plan can be fathomed and subsequently outwitted. The opening scene is downright scary, come on who hasn't got on a plane and wondered if it would crash, and let me tell you I am not in a hurry to get on one now. Thought the story is a little contrived and a bit predictable(though that is part of the story) the effect is still the same. The movie is not, despite what you may hear, a teen flick, if you're a horror fan from any generation trust me you'll like it as long as you go in wanting to see it and willing to actually think about the film and follow the story line. Trust me on this one and give it a shot.
