Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average Flightplan is the latest motion picture to take an intriguing premise and flush it into the septic tank...Instead of an intelligent, inventive finale, we are stuck with the same approach employed by every half-baked thriller.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Good ...'Flightplan' delivers a frightening thriller with an airtight plot. It's like a classic Locked Room Murder, in which the killer could not possibly enter or leave, but the victim is nevertheless dead.
USA TodayFull Review Average A few Hitchcock-inspired suspenseful sequences have a haunting quality. But the way Flightplan unfolds stretches credulity.

Flying at 40,000 feet in a cavernous, state-of-the-art 474 aircraft, Kyle Pratt (Foster) faces every mothers 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 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.
