I am going to start off by saying, the only little thing I didnt like about this movie, which is based more now on me being older, and having a wife with me, is the very beginning where they had him in the room with another lady who was running around completely naked from head to toe. That showing did not help the movie at all, if anything it put a negative in somes minds. The rest of the the movie was Oscar material all the way. The story was a great story, and it dealt with so much more then just a pilots instincts on maneuvering a plane thats malfunctioning, it deals with different people surrounding the pilots life, and it ties it all together in great format. The acting is also top notch throughout, Danzel shows that he is one of Hollywoods top actors as far as I am concerned, and all the other actors surrounding him in this were top notch. The filming was better then I imagined, the way they showed the plane crash was very believable. I'd give this 4 of 4 stars, Enjoy :)

Great drama about Drug & Alcohol Abuse

I didn't know anything about this movie and was totally surprised to find out that it is about the perils of drug use and alcoholism. Washington plays a highly functional and talented pilot who saves the day. As the audience, we know from the very first frames of this movie that he's an addict of the worst kind, a real party animal. "I drink because I want to," he exclaims repeatedly. Well, there's a terrible plane accident and all indication is that he was a hero and actually saved more lives that anyone else could have. But, does that make it right that he was drunk on vodka and cocaine while flying? The movie does an admirable job of weighing the pros and cons of his actions. But because he can't stop, his destiny is predictable.

Oscar

Brilliant. Denzel is the Kung-Fu master of acting. John Goodman is stupendous once again. James Badge Dale is an up-and-coming talent who reminds me of a young Deniro (Mean Streets or Taxi Driver). Some massive talent in this flick and the story line --they're gonna be showing this movie at AA meetings and piloting seminars for decades. Just awesome.
