This is more a movie about substance abuse/alcoholism than flying. You might construe "flight" as one man's flight to escape the reality of his problems. There is one scene near the end with John Goodman that doesn't seem to fit. Having said that I did enjoy this motion picture and Denzel once again earns his standing as one of the premier actors of this century. Grade A-.
Fake preacher gets in over his head. Evil ensues. Unique mockumentary. Grade A-.
Meryl Streep is a master at her craft. Phillip Seymour Hoffman is no slouch himself. I enjoyed the dialogue between these two as well as the charming innocent portrayed by Amy Adams. I thought I had my mind made up as to the guilt or innocence of the Priest but in the end I was left in...doubt. Grade A-.
Much havoc ensues as The Avengers protect our planet. The story and humor in this movie are just strong enough to offset the excessive smashing and bashing and busting of glass. Grade: B+
The original with Arnold was much better. Grade: C-.
