Flight Plan

Director: Robert Schwentke

Starring: Jodie Foster, Peter Sarsgaard, Erika Christensen, Sean Bean, Haley Ramm

Flying at 40,000 feet in a cavernous, state-of-the-art E-474 aircraft, Kyle Pratt (Jodie Foster) faces every mother’s worst nightmare when her six-year-old daughter Julia vanishes without a trace mid-flight from Berlin to New York. Already emotionally devastated by the unexpected death of her husband, Kyle desperately struggles to prove her sanity to the disbelieving flight crew and passengers while facing the very real possibility that she may be losing her mind. While neither the plane’s Captain Rich (Sean Bean), nor Air Marshal Gene Carson (Peter Sarsgaard) want to doubt the bereaved widow, all evidence indicates that her daughter was never on board resulting in paranoia and doubt among the passengers and crew of the plane. Finding herself desperately alone, Kyle can only rely on her own wits to solve the mystery and save her daughter.

The American airlines asked its employees to boycott the movie, as the movie pictures air stewardess as very unhelpful and rude people. Before the plane took off, one stewardess even said that “it is not wrong to hate your passengers”. Wow, this is sort of over-generalisation.

The shocking thing that followed is that Kyle actually attempted to make up a terrorisy attack scene in order to occupy all the airline crews on the flight by snapping the wires above the seating area. The reason? The flight crew prohibits her to search for her dear daughter, a mere six-year-old kid, in the cargo cabin. The flight captain said it was far too dangerous for her to venture into such places and might put her safety at a great risk.

While the oxygen masks popped out and the lights out, Kyle managed to creep into the cargo cabin. She didn’t find her daughter, but just stumbled upon her husband’s coffin. She opened the coffin and cried to her already dead husband about losing their dear child. She can’t afford to loose another dearest one anymore. Air Marshal Gene Carson caught her red-handed for venturing to the cargo area. She got handcuffed for disturbing the flight passengers.

When the plane is about to land, here comes a tragic turn to the movie’s storyline – Air Marshal Gene Carson walks into the bottom deck, and there lies a little girl – Kyle’s daughter, Julia. I was scremaing “oh my God this can’t be true” while watching the part where Gene Carson ripps of the inner coating of the coffin, took out some explosives and placed it around the girl. One stewardess was talking to Gene Carson, about the child abduction plan of his to get money and put all the blame on the seemed-to-be phychotic Kyle.

Finally Kyle found her daughter, after smashing Gene Carson and the stewardess with a heavy fire extinguiser. She managed to escape from the plane’s bottom deck unscratched while pressing the denotator she snatch from Gene Carson when he was bleeding from his nose from the attack. Gene Carson died, but not the stewardess. The stewardess ran away from the plane and refused to cooperate with Gene Carson anymore, after both of them were attack by Kyle.

Happy ending, of course. Kyle and her daughter, Julia, lived happily ever after.
