In the throes of World War II, Captain Maude Garrett joins the all-male crew of a B-17 bomber with a top-secret package. Caught off guard by the presence of a woman on a military flight, the crew tests Maude's every move. Just as her quick wit is winning them over, strange happenings and holes in her backstory incite paranoia surrounding her true mission. But this crew has more to fear - lurking in the shadows, something sinister is tearing at the heart of the plane. Trapped between an oncoming air ambush and an evil lurking within, Maude must push beyond her limits to save the hapless crew and protect her mysterious cargo. I found this feminist/action/monster film more entertaining than many, which probably comes from folks trying to make it more a war movie than the fantasy film it is. I also suspect that some viewers who would have no problem with a male in Chloe Grace Moretz's role, doing the unreal things that Chloe does, but cannot handle a woman doing them. Try putting such pre-conceived notions away and just let this "popcorn" film take you on its flight. I predict that this will become a cult classic. Recommended.
