Meh

If you like movies with no likable characters, "Flight" is for you. The main folks are substance abusers, enablers, awful friends, or a combination of all three!

I agree with other reviewers that me stop and think in a couple of places. Not sure they were really plot "twists," but definitely some undulations you may not expect.

Denzel is good and John Goodman is great. Otherwise, meh.

Thought Provoking

I thought the acting was amazing! The movie made me think about how confused our society gets when we have a hero that is seriously flawed.

flight

great story about a pilot

Good Movie

This is a good movie. It is an interesting character study about a pilot who keeps a plane from crashing and has his actions and life investigated. Denzel Washington does a great job in his role.

What's with Zemeckis & plane crashes?

Washington's performance, one of the best of his career, makes this film a "must see." (He was nominated for an Oscar.) The rest of the cast, Kelly Reilly and John Goodman in particular, are also excellent.

Some people have the wrong impression about the subject matter of this film. Despite a thrilling "action" sequence within the first half hour (said "flight"), this is *not* an action movie. It's more about the toll of alcohol and drug abuse. If the R rating didn't tip you off already, be warned this is not appropriate for young children. There is excessive violence, many scenes of drug and alcohol abuse, as well as a long scene featuring full frontal female nudity.

I was impressed how suspenseful this film continued to be, even after the crush sequence within the first half hour.

Nervous flyers beware: this one will mess you up for a bit.
