Product Description

Academy Award(R) winner Jodie Foster (Best Actress, THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, 1991) gives an outstanding performance in the heart-pumping action thriller FLIGHTPLAN. Flying at 40,000 feet in a state-of-the art aircraft that she helped design, Kyle Pratt's (Foster) 6-year-old daughter Julia vanishes without a trace. Or did she? No one on the plane believes Julia was ever onboard. And now Kyle, desperate and alone, can only count on her own wits to unravel the mystery and save her daughter. From the producer of APOLLO 13 and A BEAUTIFUL MIND, FLIGHTPLAN is an intense, suspense-filled thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire flight.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flightplan March 22, 2008
Format:DVD
Kyle Pratt and her daughter Julia board a plane in Germany to bring the body of their beloved husband/father to his final resting place in the US. After a short nap, Kyle wakes only to discover her daughter is missing from her seat. After searching on her own, she seeks help from the crew, but none of the passengers remember seeing Julia. After further inquiries, it is disclosed that Julia wasn't even listed as traveling on the flight. Everyone writes Kyle off as being in mourning, and even unstable. For just a moment Kyle starts to believe she may be losing it, but then stands firm. Julia is her daughter, and she would not make this kind of mistake regarding something so important. As Kyle begins her own search, it shocks everyone to find out that she is in fact one of the propulsion engineers of this plane and will be searching every inch to locate her daughter.

At first I couldn't believe that none of the passengers would admit to seeing Julia, but then as they are interviewed, it is amazing how many were too busy with families, business, etc. to really notice or pay attention. I expect it is pretty much how we all are. As Kyle's sanity is brought into question, we start to wonder who is right. Did we really see Julia? Jodie Foster is so strong in this movie. I like that she is proactive instead of reactive.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jodie Foster is very good. February 7, 2006
Format:DVD
Many aspects of this movie work well. Jodie Foster raises this movie above the conventional thriller. The setting using a jumbo jet works. You get to see parts of the jet, for example, the cargo bay that a typical passenger never get to see. The pacing is good. The characters themselves are well written and believable. They make understandable decisions. One never has to ask why a character would do such a stupid thing.

It is with the plot that I have the most trouble. It is fairly convoluted. It does answer the questions the veiwers have when they watch the movie. Why would anyone do this to Jody Foster's character? Why would they kidnap the daughter? Is the husband's death related in anyway? If there is a conspiracy, how big is it?

However, there were quite a few holes in the plot that left me with a bad taste in my mouth after the movie. The movie just did't click for me at the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 star thriller starring Jodie Foster. September 26, 2005
Kyle (Jodie Foster), a former engineer for a large aerospace firm in Berlin, packs up her home and takes her daughter, Julia (Marlene Lawston) and her husband's dead body to the airport; they are flying back to New York, to start over. The flight happens to be on a new double decker jumbo jet (think the new Airbus jet) that she helped design. Kyle and her daughter get settled and a couple of hours into the flight, Kyle wakes up to find Julia missing. Kyle becomes frantic and insists that the plane be searched from head to toe. Since Kyle and her daughter were the first people on the plane, no one saw Julia. The captain (Sean Bean) listens to the accounts of his flight attendants, including Stephanie (Kate Beahan) and Fiona (Erika Christensen), who confirm that Julia was never on the manifest or seen, before finally agreeing to a search lead by the Air Marshall, Carson (Peter Saarsgard). Things don't go well.

"Flightplan", Jodie Foster's newest film, is a promising, taut thriller that ends with a whimper. Directed by Robert Schwentke, the film works well for a long time and then falls victim to many of the problems that plague thrillers.

Beginning promisingly, we meet the grieving Kyle (Foster) who is mourning her husband's death. She has conversations with her dead husband, in the empty Berlin subway, or the empty snow swept streets. Her loss is significant and it isn't any easier that it happened in a foreign country, that she has a young daughter, or that there seems to be some question as to whether her husband slipped off the snowy roof or committed suicide. The film quickly establishes that Kyle and her husband have been in Berlin for a long time; six-year old Julia doesn't even know what type of food they have in America, so the trip home is a bit disorienting.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Chiller At 30,000+ feet January 16, 2006
Format:DVD
Kyle Pratt, a jet propulsion engineer who has worked on the Aalto 474 -- the world's largest jet airliner, reels emotionally from the loss of her husband at the beginning of the movie. David Pratt was an apparent suicide, though Kyle doesn't know why her husband would jump from the top of a building. She and her six-year-old daughter, Julie, decide to fly the body back to the United States for burial. On medication, truly not grounded while aboard the huge 474 jetliner, Kyle wakes to find Julie missing. None of the crew or other passengers admit to having seen her. Almost overwhelmed by the turn of events, Kyle has to face the fact that someone has stolen her daughter on the jetliner, or that her daughter died with her husband and she losing her mind.

FLIGHTPLAN stars Jodie Foster (SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, PANIC ROOM, ANNA AND THE KING, CONTACT) in one of her most compelling roles. Peter Sarsgaard (JARHEAD, SKELETON KEY) stars as the air marshal on the jet who alternately helps and hinders Kyle Pratt's efforts to find her child. Directed by Robert Schewentke, who has done primarily German films but is now moving into the American market, the film has definite Hitchcockian tones.

FLIGHTPLAN is what the director frequently calls a "slow boil" in the bonus materials on the DVD. The quiet, heavy weight of the beginning as the viewer tries to sort out everything that is going on, dreading the certain knowledge that someone is dead sucks the audience into the story and Kyle Pratt's plight. The sets were also intricately plotted out, including the color (which affects both the mood and the tension the story ratchets up), and the 474 comes across as its own world.
