This movie flightplan was good and suspenseful. I even began to think that her daughter might have been a figment of her imagination. But it was weird that the whole time it was the air marshall who kidnapped the little girl. And it was inspirational that the lady would not give up and new she was on the plane. The movie keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole time. Although I didn't like the ending. But overall best airplane movie i have seen in a while.

Jodie Foster never disappoints whenever she is on screen. Peter Sarsgaard did a good job as well. The first portion of the film was intriguing. When it gets to the middle you would know the rest of it. Cheesy ending and lack of a better screenplay melted down the excitement. It tried hard to be a good thriller, unfortunately, the execution was sub par.

There's a lot of tension in this skillfully-made thriller. Jodie Foster channels the concerned mom character she displayed in "Panic Room." However, the "secret" of the film is, quite frankly, dumb, and, once it is revealed, the rest of the movie plays out kind of absurdly, ruining the superb first half.

Kyle: "Have you seen my daughter?"
Captain Rich: "Um... miss. You came on board, with only yourself."

The story is about a woman and her child are flying back from Berlin when her daughter suddenly disappears and no one even remembers seeing her aboard the plane.

I got to say that this whole film feels like a Alfred Hitchcock movie. With it's suspense and Mystery, just like a Hitchcock. film. I mean if Alfred Hitchcock was still alive today, he might have directed his movie. Would he have done it better?, yes because we are talking about the master of suspense.

Jodie Foster was just pure excellent in this role as the scared mother who will do anything to get her daughter back no matter what, and she did a fantastic job at it. The directing in this movie I thought was pretty …

Jodie Foster is always electric in her roles. She doesn't appear in many movies but when she does get onboard, she gives it her all and I give her my highest kudos for that. It was fun watching her act crazy when she was running around, yelling at everyone, trying to look for her daughter in a gargantuan plane. In a way, it reminded me of films back in the day that focus on conspiracy and paranoia. It was nice to see those elements in modern cinema. Jodie Foster always plays a strong woman in her films and I think it was wise to cast her here. If the character had initially been a weak-willed, typical damsel-in-distress and "evolved" into a strong woman by the end of the picture, I would've rolled my eyes and completely dismissed it. In this movie, a person is simply put into a …
