Shadow in the Cloud

I have watched this movie once. This was on .


A female WWII pilot traveling with top secret documents on a B-17 Flying Fortress encounters an evil presence on board the flight.

Every mission has its demons.

Shadow in the Cloud


Objectively it’s not a good film but it’s an exhilarating way to spend 80 minutes.

The short-run time leaves no room for exposition and the small range of sets make the most use of the limited budget. The dialogue is rather clunky and over-the-top, but works within the tone of the film. Chloë Grace Moretz is clearly the standout with most of the run time dedicated to her.

There are a few really questionable scenes and the in-your-face misogyny isn’t really helpful. You definitely need to leave your physics knowledge at the door and pick up some popcorn.

The film is weird, violent, pulls no punches and is a wild ride you can’t take seriously. I don’t think I’ve seen a film quite like it.
