Great movie! But then, anything with Denzil Washington is great! As usual, he does an outstanding job. This movie will be nominated with several awards including director and would not be surprised to see Washington once again be nominated for an acadamy award - and win!!

Great Movie. I enjoyed the movie from start to finish. The audience even applauded in the end which I think is dorky but it was very well played out by Denzel and John Goodman. Not for kids.

I was so anxious to see this because of Denzel Washington who has made so many great movies, and then with all the drugs, sex, etc. etc. so filtered through this movie, and regardless if the moviemakers were trying to make a statement regarding who was responsible or not about the flight accident, and then finalizing the accident not caused by the drugs Denzel so addictive big time,PLUS the sexual scenes, language (can it ever be done without the "F" word?) was overwhelming big time. I was so sorry I spent the $$ to see this, and was truly surprised (in a very disappointing way) that Denzel made such a movie!

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.

An interesting chracter analysis. A hero that saves so many lives, while at the same time he's a functioning alcholic and drug user. He's not a very likeable character, and yet he accomplishes something amazing. All in all worth the price of admission
