Welcome aboard this Fictitious Airline flight from New York to London. To prepare you for disaster movie clichés, we will be passing through the cabin, lingering on suspicious faces. Gin and tonic will be declined by our alcoholic undercover air marshal (Liam Neeson) but not by his love interest (Julianne Moore). As we reach cruising speed, our initially intriguing premise (an unknown assassin bumping off passengers and crew) will hit turbulence, forcing us to make an emergency descent into farce. Please remain in your seats with your belts fastened as credibility (along with most of the oxygen masks) flies out of the window.
