It had a decent beginning, but the last half was just unbearable: formulaic action scenes and dialogue that made me wince.

1.5/5

Nah I didn't like this movie. It starts off good, but after a while it becomes boring. Oh and the ending sucks, couldn't they make up something better?

3/10.

Flightplan was one of the best movies of 2005 (for me). In particular, two things stood out in the film, which I thought were excellent, great acting and superb storyline. Erika Christensen, playing one of the flight attendants, probably did the best job, however, Sean Bean, the Captain of the Alto Air Flight was my favourite actor/actress in the movie.

I’m kind of against giving movies full, however, this movie had it all. The best movie of 2005

10/10

i agree with the general overall the first half was pretty good but after that yeah it was a bit dodge, things were too rhythmic, and there were some questionable flaws in the plot that took away from the enjoyable-ness of it all. 4/10

In a movie like Flightplan, it would be hard to do it without any factual flaws (eg. How did a flight attendant and an air marshall take a child into avionics etc).

I've had the movie for a while now (about 6 months) and finally got around to watching it the other day...and I have to say I was kinda disappointed.

After watching the movie for just a few minutes I could already start to pick out subtle oddities that didn't quite add up (mostly with the air marshall).

While the concept was well intended the movie fell a little short ... I give it a 5.5/10
