I hated this movie with a passion.
Flightplan isn't just one of the worst movies I've ever seen -- it'sthe only film I've ever seen in the theater that enraged me to thepoint where I actually flipped the screen the bird. The acting isterrible, with Jodie Foster putting on a manic, nerve-grating show(though arguably appropriate, since she's lost her daughter and all)and Peter Sarsgaard delivering a performance about on par with that ofa supporting character in a SciFi Original. And have you ever seen amovie that's so bad it leaves you thinking, "God, this is awful... theonly possible way this could be any worse is if X happened next." Notonly does Flightplan's ridiculous story inspire this kind of thought,but is in fact so horribly predictable that, just after you've devisedtorturous scenario X, X will indeed be the very next thing to occur! Inaddition, the movie features highly questionable moral values and ablatantly offensive exploitation of post 9-11 racist paranoiaconcerning Arabs on airplanes, with a major plot twist that actuallyrequires the audience to have certain racist fears in order to shock.If one lacks these feelings, however, the film's racism is all tooapparent, transparent, and appalling. In short, I hated this movie witha passion.
