Storyline

This is the story of a young resourceful heroine named Lisa Reisert who hates to fly, but the terror that awaits her on the night flight to Miami has nothing to do with a fear of flying! Upon boarding the plane, Lisa is trapped on a red-eye flight with a creepy villainous handsome and charming man by the name of Jackson Rippner, who's playing middle-man in the plot to assassinate a Homeland Security official. He's got her father pinned down by a would-be killer, using that advantage to coerce Lisa into phoning the luxury resort where she works and arranging to move the target into a pre-set position. Written by Anthony Pereyra <hypersonic91@yahoo.com>

Dumb, But Entertaining & Much BetterThan 'Flight Plan'
12 June 2006 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

This was a decent thriller aboard an airplane in which our "hero," Rachel McAdams as "Lisa Reisert" saves the family of the Director of Homeland Security and the life of her own dad. She does all of this against a terrorist and his group. Yeah, I know....a little far-fetched....and annoyingly PC as a young woman consistently beats the crap out of a male psycho who is using her to complete the assassination attempt.

Outside of that nonsense and a slow first 30 minutes, the last hour is a fun ride. McAdams sports a pretty, fresh face and a sweet demeanor except with a few bursts of profanity at the end. Up to that point, she was refreshing to see as you don't often see 20-ish movie actresses looking wholesome anymore. Cillian Murphy is creepy looking and effective as the bad guy "Jackson Rippner."

Once the film kicks into gear as Murphy shows his evil intentions, the film switches from a yawner to a suspenseful action flick and stays that way until the end. Then, they tack on a really stupid last few minutes with a very un-realistic middle-aged couple just to the end the film with a cheap laugh.

Overall, a dumb but entertaining movie but at least a whole lot better than the year's other "airplane movie," the horrible "Flight Plan." Still, knowing the quality of horror work director Wes Craven has produced over the year, I was a bit disappointed.
