This film takes great advantage of its setting of a tight airplane to great potential. This Wes Craven directed thriller, one of his very few films that’s not a horror film, offers an engaging story that rather ruthlessly preys on the fear of sitting next to a complete stranger for such a long period of time in a closed and tightened space, offering moments of genuine white knuckle tension. This thriller is taut, simplistic, and intense. Cillian Murphy is a terrifying presence, and Rachel McAdams is great. There are some implausibilities, especially in the film’s slightly lacking third act, but this is such a breezy watch and the rest of the film is so entertaining, that these moments can easily be overlooked.
