Critic Consensus: The actors are all on key here, but as the movie progress, tension deflates as the far-fetched plot kicks in.
A woman is forced to prove her own sanity to save the life of her daughter in this taut thriller. Kyle Pratt (Jodie Foster) is a successful aircraft designer who has recently been dealing with the traumatic death of her husband. After traveling to Berlin on business with her six-year-old daughter, Julia (Marlene Lawston), Kyle falls asleep on their flight back to New York, only to discover that her daughter has gone missing. While not knowing where Julia has gone is troubling enough, even more disturbing is the insistence by sky marshal Gene Carson (Peter Sarsgaard) and Captain Rich (Sean Bean) that no records indicate that the child ever boarded the jet. As Kyle becomes increasingly desperate to find her daughter, she must prove to the men in charge that her daughter did in fact board the plane with her, and that this turn of events is not a product of her imagination. But if Julia has gone missing, who has taken her and why? Also starring Erika Christensen and Kate Beahan, Flightplan was the first English-language feature from German director Robert Schwentke. … More

Critic Reviews for Flightplan
It's always a bad sign in a thriller when the big reveal is greeted by hoots of derisive laughter.
As with many modern thrillers the actual plot, once it comes to light, is highly implausible, there are a few too many turns towards the end and the climax errs towards the anti-climatic. That being said, it's well put together and entertainingly moody.
If it's post 9/11, why would they have a plane with bathrooms that lead to tunnel-sized ventilators that have access to the plane's machinery?!
a white-knuckle ride into the anxieties and terrors of the new millennium... Fasten your seatbelts.
Audience Reviews for Flightplan
Execellent thriller about Jodie who loses her daughter on board a flight. No one believes her. An unusual role for Sean Bean.
This is the right kind of movie for Jodie Foster to do her thing. Cause she's good at this. It was pretty interesting...But it's the kind of movie where you kind of don't wanna find out what have happened. Cause the secret is more exciting than the truth. But it was a good movie. And I'm glad I saw it
Although Flightplan is a highly predictable film, Jodie Foster gives a good performance, which keeps you glued throughout, just sit back and enjoy.
