Comments: A woman is rushing home to get married. So when her flight is canceled, due to a storm, she invites another stranded passenger to share a small charter plane with her. The real struggle occurs when the pilot has a stroke, and the plane crash-lands high in the Rockies. Will she regret being stranded with a man she doesn't know, or will the elements kill her?
This man-versus-nature film is light on survivalism and focuses on developing the two characters. I found the disasters predictable, but, judging by the gasps from the rest of the audience, I was not in the majority. The filming is beautifully executed. The two actors do a good job carrying the movie. There were two details that weren't explained. Otherwise, this is a decent drama.
