Compelling film about addiction

Denzel Washington delivers yet another gripping performance as a successful airline pilot struggling with alcohol and substance abuse. The movie immediately starts out with full frontal nudity of a beautiful flight attendant and gratuitous poses. Denzel pulls this one off as a believable addict.

Outstanding Movie !!!!!!!

I wasn't sure what kind of movie this was going to be. It started a little slow and made you wonder where it was going to go. Was a little taken back at first with the language as ii is not typical for Denzel to play that type of role. But boy it turned out to be an amazing thriller and very moving movie. It is a must see. If you have someone that you are trying to help with an addiction, take them to see it. What a great message it brings out.

This was a movie that kept me clinging on to the characters for days after I watched the movie. It moved me, it made me think and it was entertaining. Now, that's my kind of movie.

Probably one of Dentzel Washington's best performances - Oscar Candidate

Very good character development, great directing, great story. I know alcoholic's very well and I can empathize with Whip Whithaker struggles - his lows and his highs - the euphoria of the Cocaine high - thinking that we are invincible. How people destroy themselves and every one around them - if we let them. However, people can change. It is a personal decision and it can be done.

My mom, best friend and I went to see this movie tonite. Suffice it to say, we all loved it! My heart was in my throat during the first ten minutes. Denzel's acting was worthy of an Oscar nomination. It was interesting, sad, funny at times and truly depicted the horror of an alcoholic/drug abuser. We gave it a 9 out of 10...truly enjoyed it!
