I had to go see Flightplan because I needed to know what had happened to Jodie Foster's daughter. Those were some great previews. I really needed to know and I needed to know right away, so I went to the theatre to watch it.
I was not disappointed in my decision because I did find out what happened to Jodie Foster's daughter. I also had a fun time. I don't believe anything that was represented in that movie would ever happen in real life, but it was entertaining to watch.
The premise of the movie (Jodie Foster looses he daughter and freaks out) is very good and the master plan behind all that is good as well, what is very unrealistic is everything that happens in between. Most notably, the dialogue. The movie has at least 2 smart characters (Foster and the Air Marshall) delivering idiotic lines throughout the film. Maybe two highly intelligent people could come up with better things to say than the one-syllable and poor answers that they gave throughout.
Jodie Foster's acting was good I thought. Kind of as good as in Panic Room except in a less good movie with a similar amount of stress.
Bottomline: If you really want to know what happened to the kid and don't live in a place where a movie is $10 go watch it, otherwise rent the DVD or e-mail me and I'll let you know.
