2.0 out of 5 stars While Watching A Disaster Film, A Monster Floated By... October 28, 2010
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...

2.0 out of 5 stars I watched it so you don't have to October 25, 2010
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars YOUNG MALE TESTOSTERONE October 30, 2010
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars interesting low budget sci fi movie June 9, 2011
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Neither good or scary October 25, 2010
An-ill prepared amateur pilot flys with a bunch of wackos. The result is predictable except for the supernatural twist (a hairy octopus flying in the air and supposedly causing trouble with the weather!?). Boring.

1.0 out of 5 stars oh boy what was that... September 28, 2013
By Lee Rob
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Never have I seen such a cool idea for a movie monster ruined so perfectly like in this movie.
I mean a huge, tentacally thing in a dark cloud?! Maybe even in a sort of parallel dimension? Awesome!
IF there wouldn't be sobbing, annoying, screaming teenage like characters with weird reactions and even weirder script lines.
It is so hard to find the words to describe what I'm feeling right now after sitting through this prepubescent catastrophe.
The fact that there is barely any physical logic behind the story does not bother at all, its supposed to be a horror movie and thereby somewhat entertaining (I guess). But the silly, nonstop idiocy of unbelievable, illogical phrases that leave the mouths of those kids is just too much to take and way too much to take with the film. Half the time I was wetting myself the other half I was face palming like a champ.
Do yourself a favor and watch it only if it free (even 1 penny would be too much).

PS: There is no spoiler alert for such a perversion, just a warning that it might spoil your appetite.

1.0 out of 5 stars Crashed September 3, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This film is a poor attempt to be clever and it falls on it's face. The characters all act in the same immature, stupid and ignorant manner as most slasher flicks. We have tension between the strong girl and her knucklheaded boy friend. We have the horny couple and tentacles coming out of the sky. What are they? Where did they come from? Lovecraftian? There are no real references to HPL or the Mythos in the film. Government "Cthulhu in the Sky" test? Who knows? Who cares. This was a wasteof money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Blech
Not a good movie. Bad pacing, bad script. Acting is decent, but the story is dreadful. You could easily skip from the first 30 minutes to the last 30 minutes and not miss a thing.
