Flightplan (2005)

5 Ratings: 2.2
A movie directed by Karen Inwood Somers and Robert Schwentke

Like a lot of stylishly persuasive thrillers,Flightplanis 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 … see full wiki

Pros: Special effects were decent; performances were stellar.     Cons: Plot.     The Bottom Line: Flightplan started out promising, but quickly spirals down into been-there-done-that mess of a movie that bored this author, Erika Christensen notwithstanding.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot.

My eager …
