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.

A non-exciting and predictable hijacking movie...
24 April 2017 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

You know that this is going to be one of those movies, yet there is just something that makes you want to sit down and watch it. And now that I have, I wish that I listened to the voice in the back of the head that said "don't".

Granted that the movie stars Denise Richards and has Dolph Lundgren along on the ride for someone to lure in an audience, then the movie never really got up into a gear that makes it particularly watchable or entertaining.

The story in "Altitude" is about a hijacking of an airplane, and that is essentially the core of the story. But wait, hasn't this been seen a million times before in other movies? Yes it has! So do "Altitude" offer anything new or exciting to the genre? No!

Denise Richards trots through the movie on auto-pilot, but that doesn't necessarily make the performance any more interesting. And Dolph Lundgren had only a minor role in the movie, and when he was on the screen he sort of was displaying an attitude of not really wanting to be on set for that movie.

"Altitude" is horribly predictable and offers no plot twists or surprises anywhere. As such, it just march on at a very monotonous pace. And there are far better movies available if you enjoy a good airplane hijacking movie.

The movie wasn't dealt a very advantageous hand from the very beginning, and director Alex Merkin hardly managed to lift the movie up and make it outstanding in any way.

Furthermore, should you manage to sit through the entire movie, like I did, then chances are slim to none that you will return to "Altitude" for a second viewing.
