6 / 10

Decent watch (if you don't expect too much from it)

I'm sure it's probably borrowed from other movies on a plane (be it snakes, zombies, etc). But with me not remembering much from them, I found this movie somewhat enjoyable and refreshing compared to other vampire or zombie films.

The reviews I've read so far are a little harsh. Because if you judge this movie on its own and not punish it for whatever previous titles have existed, this is a well-made movie.

The plot is fair simple and well structured. The motives of each of the characters are believable. The build-up and structure of the story is good. Acting is reasonable. The editing and way in which its shot is reasonable. Even the make-up of the monsters was pretty good.

One thing I can say for sure, it's better than the other Zombie flick released this year (Army Of The Dead)

8 / 10

Not what I expected but bloody enjoyed it

An actual decent film from Netflix ????

An air hostage film mixed with a vampire sounds like a B movie?? but it's far from it

This is proper suspense and action and the mix of German and English language just adds to the suspense

The main character has a lot of sadness to her and played really well

Dominic Purcell is as good as always

Enjoy a proper film, no fuss, good story and a fair few scares and action.

Translatlantic 473

Another amazing production from Netflix Germany. I am sure that; Netflix's European department definitely works better than the US department. And probably getting cheaper, better quality work.

I didnt know, what i was goind into. Maybe a action movie with twist or something like that. But man i got surprised.

Funny to watch different kind of foreign actors in the same movie. Worked good.

5 / 10

First half was excellent, ruined by the formulaic second half.

Just finished watching this on Netflix and I must say the first hour I thought the film was excellent but then the second half felt like a Blade rip off and spoilt the whole film for me.

I didn't mind the dodgy dubbing and the horror and blood scene were very well done, I just felt that the director had run out of ideas and went to the same old formula with the second half, it would have been better if the film was shorter and they stuck to the first half formula.

All in all an okay film, if you watch movies you will see one typical bad guy scene coming off a mile away, I did.

Worth a watch, if only for the first half.
