Goofs

When the pilot suffers a stroke, Alex [Kate Winslet] is behind the pilot on the left side of the plane and Ben [Idris Elba] is on the right side behind the co-pilot seat. They both face the rear of the plane and brace for impact as the plane crashes. When they wake up after the crash they have switched sides: Ben is on the left side and Alex is on the right.

I'll have what the Dog was on
19 November 2018 | by jimbo-11554See all my reviews

This was an entertaining film although a little on the slow side. Overall enjoyable ride which plateaued a little in the middle. The one massive issue I had was that when our two protagonists looked tired, cold and hungry, the dog seemed to be full of energy for the entire film.constantly bounding about like he was on a morning walk in the snow.....the little guys feet would have been so frost bitten and they should have at least made comments towards his condition as every time I saw him leaping through the snow it just ruined the tension. Ok for a Sunday night view.
