Altitude is a 2017 action thriller directed by Alex Merkin, starring Denise Richards, Dolph Lundgren, and Jonathan Lipnicki. The film follows a group of FBI agents who are transporting a dangerous criminal through the Rocky Mountains on a small plane. But things take a turn for the worse when a powerful storm hits the plane, and they have to fight for survival against not only the elements, but also the criminal and their own personal demons.

The movie begins with the introduction of the main characters, FBI agent Gretchen Blair (played by Denise Richards), the pilot of the plane Will Hawkins (played by Dolph Lundgren), co-pilot Ronnie (played by Jonathan Lipnicki), and the dangerous criminal on board, who is never named. We immediately sense tension between Gretchen and the other agents, particularly one named Stan, who appears particularly suspicious of her.

As they take off, the group is unaware of the storm brewing ahead of them. The tension between the characters builds as secrets are revealed, and it becomes clear that not everyone is on the same page. The atmosphere on the plane is tense, and the storm only exacerbates their situation. The turbulence is so severe that the plane loses altitude and crashes into a mountain.

From here on out, the movie turns into a survival thriller. The group is stranded on the mountain with nothing but the clothes on their backs, and they have to work together to survive. They find shelter in a cave and start a fire, but the criminal manages to escape and sets out on his own, leading the others on a chase.

Meanwhile, the FBI headquarters dispatches a search and rescue mission to locate the downed plane, and the agents' personal lives are revealed through flashbacks. These flashbacks give context to the characters' motivations and help us to understand them better.

As the group navigates the mountain, they encounter a number of obstacles: harsh terrain, lack of food and water, and the criminal, who is dangerous and unpredictable. The tension between the agents and the criminal reaches a boiling point, and they are forced to fight for their lives.

The movie's climax is action-packed, with chase scenes and intense fight scenes. It's not clear who will make it out alive, and the survivors are not unscathed.

Overall, Altitude is a well-crafted thriller with strong performances from its cast. The cinematography is stunning, with breathtaking shots of the Rocky Mountains. The tension is palpable from the beginning, and the survival story keeps you on edge until the very end. Fans of action movies and survival thrillers will enjoy this film.

Altitude is a 2017 action movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 28 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.9.
