Storyline

FBI agent Gretchen Blair is on a flight to Washington D.C. when the man seated beside her makes an unusual offer. He explains that the plane they're on is about to be hijacked, and promises to pay her seventy-five million dollars if she can get him safely back on the ground. When a gang of professional thieves takes control of the plane, she realizes he isn't joking. Soon Gretchen finds herself caught in the middle of an elaborate mid-air heist, fighting to save the passengers while the thieves tear the plane apart, searching for the stolen loot hidden somewhere on board.

Goofs

At around 17 mins, on the flight deck, the captain is talking to the co-pilot about a previous flight, and is speaking about the co-pilot on that previous flight. He says, "He was sitting "right there in that jump seat, and said to me, "Do you want me to take [control of the aircraft] from here?"" One cannot control an aircraft from the jump seat. He meant the co-pilot's seat. See more »

Low cost carrier

An FBI agent is demoted to a desk job back in Washington DC. By a stroke of luck, she's upgraded to business class on her flight - but as soon as the plane takes off, her seatmate offers her a fortune if she can get him off the plane alive. Altitude is a very noticeably low budget air drama which fails to rise above its fake feel to produce any suspense. All the elements are there for an air disaster film but there's nothing new at all being offered to an audience very aware of this subgenre. The villains are just noisy, unbelievable and not too threatening despite the story having them do bad things. And because their acting is below par it was left to Denise Richards and Kirk Barker to describe how evil they apparently all are, and keep it all going, in the hope of landing soon.
