PG-13
Flightplan is the popular 2005 mystery thriller that takes viewers on a terrifying ride through the unfriendly skies! Kyle Pratt (Jodie Foster) is a widow whose husband, David, recently passed. Kyle, an American woman who was located in Europe with David and their 6-year-old daughter, Julia, as part of her job as a plane designer then decides to return to the states. They board a transatlantic flight on a fictional aircraft called E-474, with David's coffin in the luggage compartment, and fall asleep a while after the takeoff. When Kyle wakes up three hours later, she's appalled to find out that Julia is nowhere to be seen. Furthermore, there are no apparent listings of her daughter ever boarding the plane, and her personal items have vanished as well. With the help of a rather reluctant air marshal named Carson (Peter Sarsgaard, Boys Don't Cry,Garden State) as well as the rest of the flight staff, Kyle starts to search the plane to find clues about her daughters' whereabouts.moreless

    Los Angeles Times Carina Chocano

    The movie loses some of its initial atmospheric tension as paranoid thrills give way to Rambo high jinks.

    Variety Robert Koehler

    Largely undone by a script that self-destructs in the third act of an otherwise well-made thriller.
