I was expecting a good movie. I wasn't expecting a great movie. I have always liked Denzel Washington's performances; however, he is phenomenal in this. I also believe that this movie will also get Don Ceadle some more recognition. Not that he isn't known, but now everyone will know him. Great story. You'll buy the whole seat, but you'll only use the edge. Go See It!

Denzel continues to show his versatility as an actor. Quite a few story lines and subconscious messages in Flight. I'm ranking this as a GO! I'll definitely be adding this to the movie collection once available.

This was a brilliant performance by Denzel Washington. The special effects of the crash was great but seemed so real. John goodman was played his role as only John could play it.

This is a well crafted film worthy of attention by our often careless culture. And the trajectory of the life of the central character of this film, a pilot, is as harrowing as the plane crash that finally pushes him to rock bottom. I had to hide my eyes at times, not at the scary flight scenes but at the dooming choices this pilot was making or about to make. It's not quite what I expected, but it lifted me above the clouds. I wasn't expecting and I am still ruminating on aspects of this film and woke up thinking about it this morning. I have a suspicion that the audience I saw it with was not expecting to be confronted with a story about alcoholism and it's capriciousness and that we were all pushed into thinking about how our actions can affect others and their flight paths. See it.
