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!

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.

An absolute tour de force from Denzel Washington. The trailer is a bit if a fooler - this is a movie mostly about an unflinching look at one man's battle with alcohol and drug addiction...hard to watch at times but incredibly affecting. The twist at the end of the movie comes as a surprise and is very satisfying.

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!
