Critic Reviews of "Flightplan"New York ObserverSeptember 28, 2005
[Foster's] such a valuable commodity that I wish she'd spend her time making better movies.Village VoiceSeptember 27, 2005
We're starkly reminded that there's nothing quite so fickle as paranoia, and that some people are never more persuasive than when they're out of their minds.Ebert & RoeperSeptember 26, 2005
I do think this is a solid thriller for our times.L.A. WeeklySeptember 24, 2005
The vanished child one really misses here is that adorably sparky, wised-up kid from Bugsy Malone and Alice Doesn't Live Here Any More.Entertainment WeeklySeptember 24, 2005
One of those thrillers that pivots around the question of how daring -- or how focus-group cautious -- we suspect the filmmakers will turn out to be.Washington PostSeptember 23, 2005
Succeeds admirably, both as a sophisticated psychological thriller and as an example of, if not great art, then superb craftsmanship.BeliefnetSeptember 01, 2011
It's always a bad sign in a thriller when the big reveal is greeted by hoots of derisive laughter.ComingSoon.netMarch 22, 2011
As with many modern thrillers the actual plot, once it comes to light, is highly implausible, there are a few too many turns towards the end and the climax errs towards the anti-climatic. That being said, it's well put together and entertainingly moody.Common Sense MediaDecember 15, 2010
Tense but riveting thriller, best for teens+.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
If it's post 9/11, why would they have a plane with bathrooms that lead to tunnel-sized ventilators that have access to the plane's machinery?!Eye for FilmJuly 06, 2007
a white-knuckle ride into the anxieties and terrors of the new millennium... Fasten your seatbelts.Princeton Town TopicsMay 26, 2007
Following a smooth takeoff, this psychological thriller hits some turbulence and crash lands due to a preposterous, almost comical, turn of events.
