Storyline

On a stormy night during World War II, a female pilot with top secret cargo talks her way on board a bomber plane about to take-off. The crass all-male crew reluctantly agrees, but their suspicions about her identity and the mysterious cargo quickly grow. Just then a shadow appears in the clouds - was it the incoming Japanese fleet? Or caused by some other sinister stowaway?

Trivia

The animated segment at the beginning of the film is based on Private Snafu, a series of adult-oriented instructional shorts meant to educate enlisted personnel on army discretion, hygiene, combat readiness and daily life. They were produced between 1943 and 1945, and given they were not meant to be public, were free from censorship restrictions. The title character, parodied in the film, come from the military acronym "Situation Normal All Fucked Up". See more »

Disappointing
2 January 2021 | by charlespdallasSee all my reviews

I am normally a massive Chloe Grace Moretz fan, even movies that are considered a miss like 5th Wave. I am also a monster movie fan, whether that is major AAA shows like Godzilla, Cloverfield or pure B movies that are entertaining as long as you don't take them too serious ( Anaconda, Pirana, Lake Placid, older Godzilla movies, etc.

Unfortunately this movie was a complete miss across the board. Wasn't a good Chloe Grace Moretz movie, wasn't a good monster movie, nor did it even embrace being a B flick.

I do not recommend. Just flat out bad
