Five friends on a small airplane mysteriously lose their radio connection on a trip from New York to LA. As they continue their flight, they're forced to assume that a major disaster happened on the ground. They discover a stowaway, Erik, who urges them not to land at any cost. Before they run out of fuel, they must find out the truth.
I was shocked to see that this was a German made film, it looks, sounds and plays out like standard Hollywood movie with all their usual tropes.
Skybound tells the story of a group of offensively wealthy twenty somethings who jump aboard their private plane to travel across country to party. Things go wrong when they discover a stowaway, experience electrical difficulties and struggle to land.
Unexpectedly this is a clever little claustophobic thriller that delivered. I'd never heard of it so it was a very nice surprise and except for some questionable acting/writing and a couple of incredibly dumb moments this is really quite good.
It builds up tension perfectly, creates a mystery and manages to end on a high even if it is an eyebrow raising one.
I'd recommend this competent little piece for anyone with a spare 90 minutes. Hardly revolutionary but a decent try all the same.
Scarily realistic (Except for moments where it's stupidly not)
Moronic cover that gives too much away
Acting is poor in places
Couple of really bad writing decisions
