A seasoned airline pilot miraculously crash lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe, saving nearly every soul on board.

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.
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.
