      Frank Scheck Hollywood Reporter Since the action takes place entirely on the plane, it's mainly of the claustrophobic variety, with the shootouts and fistfights often rendered in near incomprehensible fashion. Apr 17, 2017 Full Review Noel Murray Los Angeles Times The cast is game and the pace blessedly zippy, but everything about this film feels too fake to generate any real suspense.

      Kira T Se pasaron las leyes de la física por los huevos y una trama además de sonsa bastante cliché Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 07/23/23 Full Review Audience Member The plane was a mish mash of a wide variety aircreafr, sometimes the nose looked like a 757, some of the models looked like a 737. Early in the movie the plane was referred to as having fly by wire, later a hydraulic failure was mentioned. The walls looked like a 747, as did the exits, but the plane was a narrowbody. The special effects were terrible from the takeoff to the terrible ending crash scene. The radar screen never left the LA Basin, not what would be expected for a flight heading to Washington DC. Te scene landing and taking off between the flaming whatevers was ridiculous. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Altitude is that what you expect from a low budget B movie. The movie takes entirely almost on a plane so the movie does feel claustrophobic which means the action scenes are poorly shot and he can barely see what’s going on. The plot is a bit ridiculous with a lot of plot errors and bad acting. It’s a watchable film but as you can probably tell the ending is predictable and forgettable. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 05/18/20 Full Review Audience Member Watched it 2 days ago and can't remember what happened in the film. Decent and interesting enough so would probably watch it again at some point. I do remember the cliché and tacky moments though, in particular the climax line "you need to get more altitude!" 🤦🏼‍♂️ . Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review adam b A downright terrible film. Bad acting, dumb story, even dumber script, and with SOME of the CGI being the only redeeming quality. Side note; Denise Richards is one of the worst actresses I've seen star as the main character of a film. Avoid avoid avoid Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Generic and lifeless. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 12/25/18 Full Review Read all reviews
