Like a lot of stylishly persuasive thrillers, Flightplan is more fun to watch than it is to think about. There's much to admire in this hermetically sealed mystery, in which a propulsion engineer and grieving widow (Jodie Foster) takes her 6-year-old daughter (and a coffin containing her husband's body) on a transatlantic flight aboard a brand-new jumbo jet she helped design, and faces a mother's worst nightmare when her daughter (Marlene Lawston) goes missing. But how can that be? Is she delusional? Are the flight crew, the captain (Sean Bean) and a seemingly sympathetic sky marshal (Peter Sarsgaard) playing out some kind of conspiratorial abduction? In making his first English-language feature, German director Robert Schwentke milks the mother's dilemma for all it's worth, and Foster's intense yet subtly nuanced performance (which builds on a fair amount of post-9/11 paranoia) encompasses all the shifting emotions required to grab and hold your attention. Alas, this upgraded riff on Hitchcock's The Lady Vanishes (not to mention Otto Preminger's Bunny Lake is Missing) is ultimately too preposterous to hold itself together. Flightplan gives us a dazzling tour of the jumbo jet's high-tech innards, and its suspense is intelligently maintained all the way through to a cathartic conclusion, but the plot-heavy mechanics break down under scrutiny. Your best bet is to fasten your seatbelt and enjoy the thrills on a purely emotional level--a strategy that worked equally well with Panic Room, Foster's previous thriller about a mother and daughter in peril. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Likeable actress hones acting skills..eurodrama Aug. 21 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The director gives a commentary in this film shot partly in Germany and thoae who recall the Twilight Zone
and later Airplane/airport film or the Poseidon Adventure and Earthquake and disaster type films can compare? Like shopping? In a way and the actress has appeared in so many films and varied those who have seen her for so many
years finds her in a diffferent guise..a film where the director compares american and european directors? The format becomes slow moving as the feature moves on from its quick begginning..this may be purposely to showcase the
dramatic side of the film rather than a special effects laden extravaganza and ending..cliff hanger like as an old episode of the twilight zone..we recall these old films and old shows they appear portentous overly important and the is the art of filmmaking..and writing..making it seem life or death..like we are in the seats of the plane..and here we have a change..missing children and the tale seems to be about..the children bu told from the point of view of the mother..in her eyes..movements,,and she keeps the momentum throughout and we are at the edge of our seats..i enjoyed this film and it was good to see her in this changed role and the commentary is intelligen tif you care to listen..some directors diss on stars..it takes away from their film..the film is catered written up for the star the light shines..we have a heroine and its true if we did not have a star..the film would go in other directions and be quite different..at times the word pretty is used..and what makes people tune in..but when i write of films i dont mind the star feature which has made america a great film culture..highlighting the attractive features face and body, physique, as she makes herself across..as compared to the rugged male..

By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER

I was surprised by some of the less than stellar reviews this film received, mainly because Jodie Foster, the consummate actress, just does not make bad movies - especially at this stage in her illustrious career. A few comparisons to The Forgotten did manage to lower my expectations a bit going in, but Flightplan really impressed me. Yes, you have to stretch credibility a little bit when you watch it, but that's almost to be expected since we are talking about a movie and not a documentary or reenactment of actual events. It's not easy to come up with a decent ending for a movie like this (and, inevitably, some viewers will think it should have taken a different path at the end), but I think the filmmakers hit a stand-up triple if not a home run in the case of Flightplan.

Jodie Foster plays Kyle Pratt, a grieving widow flying home from Germany with her daughter and the body of her husband (who died when he fell off the roof of their building). It's a huge, brand new airplane, one which Pratt actually helped design, and she sets out to search every inch of it after she wakes up, some three hours into the flight, to find her six-years-old daughter missing. Like any mother, she does a quick search of the surrounding area before quickly slipping into panic mode, soliciting the help of the crew and, ultimately, the captain. A search is organized by the crew, but no one finds any sign of little Julia (Marlene Lawston). To make matters worse, no one on board the plane even remembers seeing the little girl, and everyone on the passenger list is accounted for. By now the air marshal (Peter Sarsgaard) is heavily involved, as Pratt has begun making quite a disturbance. She just wants to find her child, but no one believes the girl was ever on the plane.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flightplan May 24 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I received it in good order - I prefer to purchase DVD's because I can't always watch a movie in it's entirety in one sitting - Since Rogers Cable in the London Ontario area has fixed it so you can't copy any movies - I no longer will be subscribing to their movies.
