i liked this movie.its not completely original,but than again most movies today aren't.i liked the tense atmosphere it had.it also has some moments that get your adrenaline pumping.the acting was pretty good,in my opinion.there's not much in the way of character development here,since the movie jumps right into the action fairly quickly.but that didn't bother me in this picture.you get enough of sense of each person as the story goes along.the music is not memorable at all,and i'm not sure if that's good or bad.overall,this was not a bad movie.in fact,i'd say it's pretty decent,especially for a lazy weekend,when you have nothing else going on.for me,Altitude (2010)is a 3/5

I just saw this at a film festival, with the producer, writer and director present for a Q&A after the film. I'm still pumped. It's a single-set movie with lots of action and drama. It would be schlocky if it tried to stand on the action alone, but backs it up with an enjoyable story and good characters. I'm buying it on DVD so I can watch it again and subject all my friends to it.

While Watching A Disaster Film, A Monster Floated By... Oct. 28 2010
By Bindy Sue Frønkünschtein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I guess I would have enjoyed ALTITUDE a lot more if: A) It wasn't sold as a monster movie. B) The actual creature had been in it for longer than 20 seconds. C) The whole film had been about 30 minutes in length. As an "airplane-in-trouble" movie, it could have been OK. That is, minus the flying octopus. As it is, I found myself waiting for something interesting to happen, only to have all hopes dashed. Please, if you are expecting a horror / monster movie, just forget it. Otherwise, you're in for a bout of air-sickness...

I watched it so you don't have to Oct. 25 2010
By US Townhall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The green screen 270-degree sheet that surrounds most of the plane gives us some good CGI of the storm outside. The filmmakers outsourced the CGI to China, but it's a shame they also didn't outsource the script, direction, and acting as well.

The film's fails on most levels, but a production begins and ends with a strong script, and this film simply didn't have it. Characters have to be likeable in order for us to care about their fate, and these 5 are very often cartoonishly obnoxious. I didn't care that their lives were in danger. In fact, I couldn't wait for them to be killed off.

There are some films that are so bad, they're good. This one isn't. It's so bad, it's bad. Even clocking in at 82 minutes before the long 8 minute closing credit sequence, it feels long and ponderous in most places.

Not even worth a rental.

YOUNG MALE TESTOSTERONE Oct. 30 2010
By THE MOVIE GUY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Five young adults charter an airplane for a getaway weekend. Sara pilots the plane which includes one other woman and three boys with testosterone problems who vie for her attention by putting each other down. The movie consists of a lot of blue hue scenes and facial close-ups. The "monster" in the movie was apparently created by the Pastafarians who wanted to introduce their god, the "Flying Spaghetti Monster." The characters were bad and unlikable. Most of the movie consists of bickering among the people in the airplane. While the five of them are in the plane, they ascend into storm clouds and are unable to escape the clouds which are the domain of the multi-tentacle monster you see on the cover. I thought the ending of the movie made the movie Twilight Zone-like, however the poor execution of the plot leading up to it, the inability to use the twist cleverly in the story, and the otherwise lousy scenes made the movie a stinker. It would have made a good 30 minute Creep Show episode. If facial close-ups of Jessica Lowndes is what turns you on, then by all means get this movie. (Worse than "Frozen"!) The movie is rated R for language (rare f-bomb) and a "sexual gesture." That sexual gesture is one of the males pretending to be self-stroking a long shaft, which makes a statement about this movie.

interesting low budget sci fi movie June 9 2011
By Michael Dobey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
This one is quite interesting and has a interesting twilight zone type of storyline with that type of ending. It's not a bad movie in the least as the one star reviewers claim. If you like the twilight zone or the outer limits then you will enjoy this one. The cast does a fine job and most of the effects look great, a few less so but this is low budget land and no effect is as bad in todays terms as some other flicks out there at this budget. (some scy fy movies for instance) However scy fy's tv shows are much better in that regard. Anyways it does have the typical mindless aggressive jock character here but it other than that no other character is a flat stereotype here. The actors all do manage to do a very good job here and that helps too. This one looks fantastic on blu ray and you get a how they shot it bonus feature as well.

Bro alpha male-ism and distrust dominate this disaster movie...that is, until a giant, flying octopus came along. WHAT!?! Nov. 7 2012
By John's Horror Corner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Okay. Just skip it. I plan on spoiling the movie for you. Just trust me when I say it will be even more spoiled for you if you watch it on your own. I enjoyed laughing at this flick even though everything was spoiled for me. Hell, the movie poster spoiled the movie for everyone! I'll just leave the very end a disappointing mystery for your own viewing disapproval. The effects are too bad for theaters but feel just about right for the sci-fi network, if that good.

Five friends--Sara (Jessica Lowndes; The Devil's Carnival, The Haunting of Molly Hartley), Mel (Julianna Guill; the Friday the 13th remake, The Apparition), Cory (Ryan Donowho), Bruce (Landon Liboiron; The Howling: Reborn) and Sal (Jake Weary)--set off on a trip together on a six passenger plane piloted by Sara, whose mother died while piloting a six passenger plane (dun dun dunnnnn!). As we meet these late teens we find an immediate sexual triangle between Sal, Cory and Mel (who's dating uber-jerk-jock Sal). Bruce is Sara's out-of-place friend-with-benefits who is suspiciously squirrely before getting on the plane--feels like the opening of Final Destination (2000), doesn't it? They play out the various forms of teen angst well and clique-like jabs vying for top alpha dog status start almost immediately--still feeling like the Final Destination series.

Just as the bro-jibes start to hit a little too hard for comfort and the boy-girl tension starts rising there is a malfunction with the plane preventing them from descending. Then, as if it came out of nowhere, they get trapped in a dark cloudy superstorm at high altitudes and now communication and navigation instruments are disabled as well. Already, this film feels like a disaster film where the greatest downfall is the decomposition of social unity of the group... Sort of Lord of the Flies takes flight.

The problems continue to add up: distrust among the teens heightens, the jerk jock Sal is drunk and thinks he sees some "thing" in the clouds, they're losing fuel for some reason, they have too much cargo, they're lost, two of them get into a fist fight, another has a panic attack, another overdoses on drugs, and if they try to descend through the dark clouds to put an end to all this nonsense they just may hit a Canadian mountain and die! But when the wings ice up in high altitudes and someone "has to go OUTSIDE" to manually fix the rudder-thing that is jammed and forcing them to ascend yet higher they finally work together. But, hold on. Some teenager is gonna' FIX the plane wing while dangling outside of a plane soaring through a storm? Huh!?!? Well, this leads to "quite a realistic" scene which, in no way, made me glad I gave this flick a chance.

The movie progresses (or, degenerates) and these teens start to die one by one--like ya' do. As if we needed anything else to compound these kids' fate, Sal sees "the thing in the sky" again. Yup, the tentacled thing that was spoiled for you the moment you saw the movie poster or blu-ray cover. Evidently there's a gargantuan flying squid monster up there with them. How it flies, I have no idea!

Anyway, after fixing the plane--oh, right, the teenager fixed a plane wing with a few dedicated kicks--so it can finally descend they somehow fail to see the ground after 20 minutes! How high were they? If they weren't panicking yet, now it's really setting in. They start throwing around crazy hypotheses like they're part of an experiment, they've been drugged, or it's all a dream. Thankfully this brainstorming session is interrupted by the thunderous rumblings of the sky kraken.

At this point the aero-octupus is trying to kill them and they're trying to kill each other. It's anybody's game really.

So what's going on here? The reason this is all happening to them is unspeakably stupid and what saves the final survivors is somehow upsettingly yet STUPIDER. The action finale against the flying octopus should aggravate any and all viewers on the basis of physics, gravity, silliness, and the fact that a skinny teen was in a tug-of-warring stalemate against a 50 ton airborne octopod. I'll repeat that last bit even though I'm giving the "big scene" of the movie away here...a teenager pits his strength against something over 500 times his size AND TIES in a tug-of-war.

WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?!?!? If you thought that an entire movie filmed in the space of a six-passenger airplane was destined to fail, you were right!
