No Way Up 2024 movie review

Is the concept of sharks on a plane too far-fetched for a movie? Not for Hollywood. Enter “No Way Up,” a suspense thriller that embraces this unlikely premise.

Sophie Macintosh stars as Ava, a privileged college student en route to a holiday weekend in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, with friends. However, when their plane encounters a dire issue and crashes into the sea, Ava and a handful of fortunate passengers find themselves battling against sharks to survive.

The plot unfolds in a straightforward manner, with the survivors struggling to break free from their aquatic prison and reach the surface. Yet, every step forward is met with setbacks or new challenges, maintaining a level of suspense despite its predictability.

Adding gravitas to the cast is veteran actor Colm Meaney, known for his roles in “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” portraying Ava’s trusted companion. Also contributing significantly is Phyllis Logan from “Downton Abbey,” playing a grandmother embarking on a trip with her husband and granddaughter.

“No Way Up” cleverly melds disaster movie and survival horror elements, offering a unique cinematic experience. With a balance of pregnant pauses and jump scares, the film satisfies audiences hungry for suspense.
