An aeronautical engineer (Foster) boards a flight with her daughter only to
awake from a nap and discover her child is missing. Is the kid's disappearance
part of the mother's mental meltdown or a nefarious scheme? German filmmaker
Robert Schwentke's last movie, Tattoo (2002), seemed designed to serve as
a Hollywood calling card; he's now nabbed a studio assignment with the poster
girl for maternal-concern thrillers. But once the inevitable final descent into
ridiculousness happens, neither Schwentke's technical panache nor Foster's
first-rate brow-furrowing can save the movie from severe altitude sickness.
