Denzel Washington at his best! He played any kind of character you wanted to see; a charismatic pilot, a drunk, a lover, a fighter, etc! Absolutely awesome performance!

Really good movie. Made me uncomfortable, mad, disgusted, sad. Well acted with an excellent cast. Very realistic and not a typical Hollywood ending, which I really appreciate. Sometimes the best ending isn't a happy ending.

This is what character acting is all about - rooting for the star, hoping for him, agonziing in his choices.....Brilliantly acted! However, I don't know if anyone would have made the choice he did if it were real life. The ending was kinda lame but I don't care! - it's Denzel!

Although, at times, it was difficult to watch, we loved the movie. Denzel Washington did a superb job as an alcoholic struggling with his addiction. the story line was tense and moved rapidly. The acting was great.....John Goodman, at times, "steals the show". The subject matter was a little different than what we have been used to and I felt it was handled delicately. All the actors played their roles with great sensitivity, never over acted....yet made you feel that you were part of their issues. I felt the special effects were realistic as well..the scenes in the plane during the turbulence were felt by everyone in the audience...not a sound could be heard!
Bravo for the cast, crew and everyone involved with this film....it is worth seeing....great thriller/drama! This is an adult film, definitely not for children...subject matter can be thought to be hard core and tough to watch at times....although its content is an important and integral part of the plot.
