    I found this to be a shot in the arm of a well tread genre. That was a good thing.
    A group of hijackers have a plan to score big on a commercial airline and make the job look like terrorists. Unbeknownst to them, there is a monster aboard who does not do well with threats.
    The story begins with end and also has flash backs and by the end you realize you feel like you were on the bumpy…

    Going in I did not know this was a remake. Now I want to see what came before and compare.

    The premise, Jake Gyllenhaal, the single location, and the intensity were the strengths of this film.

    The weaknesses are there too. There is no way that is a realistic view of how a 911 call center works. The character had numerous times he could have reached out for assistance from people with actual 911 experience. Also, it is a stretch…

    Whew! This is a cinematic achievement. It is not just a film but also a harrowing experience.

    The camera work and cinemaphotography are a major part of this film. You feel like you are right there. The long shots without edit in this movie are super impressive.

    It is not an easy film as it shows the brutality of WW I. It is intense and your blood pressure will change more than once.

    This film should be seen on a big screen. The sound and soundtrack enhance this experience.

    Brutal, sad, honest, and an experience you will not soon forget.

    Peace, it really is worth it.

    No spoilers or plot details here. Chalk me up as one of the people who enjoyed this film.
    I am reacting on feelings here and I felt happy with this and I was smiling at the end.
    I have no idea if this is how the arc was originally intended or not. Certainly neither of the two earlier films in this trilogy could be ignored. Yet, I feel an honest effort was made to please old school Star Wars fans…
