Lisa Reisert (Rachel McAdams) is a workaholic, constantly making arrangements via cell phone for the hotel she manages. When she gets in an argument with a rude fellow traveler at the airport, another passenger by the name of Jackson (Cillian Murphy) comes in on her side. Soon enough, Jackson and Lisa are sitting side by side on the plane, when he reveals that their meeting was no coincidence: Her father (Brian Cox) is under surveillance by an associate ready to shoot him at a moment's notice, and she must call her hotel and change the reservation for the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security (Jack Scalia) and his family from his usual suite to another room, where an assassination will be arranged. It is much to the credit of all involved that the bulk of the movie is taut, compelling, and consists simply of two people talking to each other. After that, it becomes a more conventional actioner, but it stays fun.
