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...

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.

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.

Okay. Just skip it. I plan on spoiling the movie for you. Just trust me when I say it will be even more spoiled for you if you watch it on your own. I enjoyed laughing at this flick even though everything was spoiled for me. Hell, the movie poster spoiled the movie for everyone! I'll just leave the very end a disappointing mystery for your own viewing disapproval. The effects are too bad for theaters but feel just about right for the sci-fi network, if that good.

Five friends--Sara (Jessica Lowndes; The Devil's Carnival, The Haunting of Molly Hartley), Mel (Julianna Guill; the Friday the 13th remake, The Apparition), Cory (Ryan Donowho), Bruce (Landon Liboiron; The Howling: Reborn) and Sal (Jake Weary)--set off on a trip together on a six passenger plane piloted by Sara, whose mother died while piloting a six passenger plane (dun dun dunnnnn!). As we meet these late teens we find an immediate sexual triangle between Sal, Cory and Mel (who's dating uber-jerk-jock Sal). Bruce is Sara's out-of-place friend-with-benefits who is suspiciously squirrely before getting on the plane--feels like the opening of Final Destination (2000), doesn't it? They play out the various forms of teen angst well and clique-like jabs vying for top alpha dog status start almost immediately--still feeling like the Final Destination series.

Just as the bro-jibes start to hit a little too hard for comfort and the boy-girl tension starts rising there is a malfunction with the plane preventing them from descending. Then, as if it came out of nowhere, they get trapped in a dark cloudy superstorm at high altitudes and now communication and navigation instruments are disabled as well.

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.

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.
