I have a cunning plan

*** This comment may contain spoilers ***

This must be close to the plot synopsis:

Man: "You know we're always saying we could use 50 million dollars?

Woman: "Yes"

Man: "Well I have a cunning plan."

Woman: "What's that then?"

Man: "First of all we need to find an aeronautics engineer working in a foreign country, with a child, and an encyclopedic knowledge of the layout of a particular long-haul plane."

Woman: "Why's that?"

Man: "Well then, you see, we murder her spouse, in such a way as it looks like an accident."

Woman: "What for?"

Man (exasperated): "Well then of course, we bribe the mortuary assistant at the hospital into letting us place explosives inside the casket."

Woman: "But why?"

Man: "I'm coming to that. Then we wait until the woman decides to return the the U.S."

Woman: "But what if she doesn't?"

Man: "She just will, okay? So anyway, when she decides to return home we find out what flight she's on. Hopefully she is not only placed on the type of plane of which she has encyclopedic knowledge, and flying with the airline of which you're a flight attendant, but also on the same flight as her dead husband's casket. Are you following?"

Woman: "I think so."

Man:"Good, we're nearly there. Then all we need to do is falsify the checking-in information to remove all record of her daughter, make sure she gets on the plane half an hour before everybody else, ensure there is a row of empty seats behind her and get me on the flight, sitting nearby."

Woman: "And then?"

Man (laughing): "Now this the cunning part. She takes the empty seats, allowing her daughter to sit in the aisle seat, then when she goes to sleep, all I have to do is steal a food trolley, stuff the daughter into it and hide her in the hold. Oh, and did I mention that we must ensure that nobody on the entire plane sees the daughter?"

Woman: "Isn't this getting a little far fetched?"

Man (angry): "What do'you mean? It's a great plan? All I have to do then is remove the child's boarding pass from wherever the mother is keeping it without waking her, assist her search for the missing child in the guise of an Air Marshal, convince the captain that the woman is mad and that the child died with her father (through a forged note from the mortician), and wait for the mother to escape from my custody.

Woman:"Escape, why?"

Man: "Because the casket can only be unlocked by her, so once she's unlocked it I can set the timer on the explosives. From there we're home and dry. I merely have to recapture her, convince the captain that she's actually not mad but a hijacker who wants 50 million dollars and give the Captain our account number, asking him to ensure the money is paid straight in. Oh, Then we land, everybody gets off the plane, I shoot the mother and blow up the daughter and nobody is any the wiser. We walk away with a cool 50 million. Simple eh?"

Never before have I wasted two hours of my life on quite such egregious nonsense.

Weakest plot ever seen

I have never seen a more stupid plot than in this movie. How to get 10 million $? Very simple, just do like this:

Make sure you have a job as a security officer on an airplane. Then you find a woman who is an aircraft engineer, who has a husband and a child, and who lives in a city away from her home country, and who -when flying home- will certainly use an airline that uses the type of aircraft of which she is the expert engineer. Are you still with me? Next: you throw her husband from a high building, your bribe the local morgue director to put a bomb in the coffin, and to write a false declaration that the deceased's child was also in the morgue, dead. You get a stewardess accomplish to corrupt the passenger list of the flight that the woman with her child are going to take to bring the husband home. By some kind of hypnosis you prevent all flight passengers to see the woman's child on board. During the night, when they are asleep, you pick the child from its seat without the child or mother waking up and without anybody noticing it. Simple, because everybody sleeps like a log in in the economy class. The woman runs amok when she misses her child, whom everybody denies that it was on board. You tell the captain that she threatens to blow up the plane if the airline doesn't wire 10 million $ to your bank account. That money transfer of course is done within an hour. Fortunately at the end everything goes well for the good guys, the child is saved and the bad guy is blown up in the plane. Interesting to hear that airline staff in a foreign city have the power to arrest morgue directors.

I am extremely disappointed that my heroes Sean Bean and Jody Foster take part in this nonsense. If only it had been intended to be a comedy with Leslie Nielsen, I could have appreciated it. It is laughable, so bad.

Great movie, and who considers it illogical / exaggerated, is the proof of the realism of the plot

If one reads the negative reviews, it often says: tastes are different and logical plot holes etc.- well, I can only say: fates are different, and correspondingly ignorant and arrogant is some people's behavior. The people who think the movie is unbelievable are usually the ones who trust the bombers / blackmailers / liars and applaud them (they are not always bombers, but they are, for example, spiritual instigators and more often than not money is their goal as well) and the victims who do know the truth, they do not believe them, they disrespect and even blame them and make their life a torment. This is happening every day, and only the ignorant / arrogant / inexperienced and naive, who have always been lucky and have never experienced suffering and lack of respect and lack of support and never really had to fight hard, deny this - and they think their happiness is their own achievement alone - ha ha, how nasty and blind can people be (it is exactly these people who never had to struggle). And that this film addresses and shows this phenomenon is a success of its own, and in addition there is the always fantastic talent of Jodie Foster, and an extremely suspenseful production. And if you bash this film, but like Non-Stop then your hypocrisy is even more obvious, because Non-Stop has clearly stolen much from Flightplan and also shows the pain and the powerlessness and stress when you know you know/speak the truth, but you are being manipulated in such a way that nobody believes you - the only main difference between these two movies is: Non-Stop is slightly heavier on the action-side and Flightplan slightly more on the drama-side, but both movies are fantastic, but if I have to pick one: I choose the female power of Jodie.
