(Jodie Foster, Peter Sarsgaard, Erika Christensen, Sean Bean, et al / PG-13 / 87 mins / Touchstone)
Overview: After the unexpected death of her husband, airplane designer Kyle Pratt (Foster) takes her daughter, Julia, on board a state-of-the-art 474 aircraft to fly from Berlin to New York. In the middle of the nonstop flight, Julia seemingly disappears without a trace. Kyle begins to panic when the crew, including Capt. Rich (Bean) and Air Marshal Gene Carson (Sarsgaard), claim the girl never boarded the plane at takeoff.
Verdict: To be very honest, as always, 'Flightplan' is no less preposterous than the recent, similarly plane-bound affair, 'Red Eye.' But it's a lot less fun! And I so wanted it to be a heck of a whole lot more fun and adventure too! The movie loses some of its initial atmospheric tension as paranoid thrills give way to Ramboesque high jinks. Basically, actors shamelessly chew scenery - most notably Sean Bean, who plays our overly dramatic pilot who may be hiding something - and Peter Sarsgaard, as our overzealous air marshall, Carson, who is definitely hiding something! Foster, as always, is a heck of a one-woman show who makes you feel for her. You wouldn't want the seat next to her, though!
