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!

The movie "Flight" is the tale of a tortured soul and how he succumbs to his weakness while he tries desperately to maintain a facade of strength and control. Denzel Washington is superb in this role. He elicits feelings of contempt as well as sympathy for his character from the viewer. The many layers of what is initially seen as a one dimensional character are delicately peeled away as the story unfolds.

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 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.

More than what I was expecting. Denzel is fantastic, as always, as this very sad, sick man. It's powerful stuff. As the child of an alcoholic it was tough to watch. Could practically feel everyone in the theatre groaning as we were inwardly begging the character to do the right thing.
