Shadow In The Cloud

Written by: Max Landis, Roseanne Liang

Directed by: Roseanne Liang

Starring: Chloë Grace Moretz, Taylor John Smith, Byron Coll, Nick Robinson, Beulah Koale, Callan Mulvey, Joe Witkowski

Rated R
Running time: 83 Mins

The crew are not pleased to see a woman boarding their plane, so they immediately lock her in the Sperry (the belly gun turret), where she starts to see weird things happening to the airplane.

About three quarters of this movie is just Moretz, hamming it up and doing it well; I am happy to report that she is up to the challenge. The special effects are convincing, even if there are moments — and there are many of them — that will strain your credulity. (There is one scene where an exploding plane is unexpectedly serendipitous and is ridiculously cool). All of the men are one dimensional disposable supports who we never care enough about to worry when they die.

Overall, I’d recommend this one. It’s on Amazon Prime, but it costs $20.00 to watch, so get a party together. There are no post-credit scenes.

Flytrap rating: 7.5/10
