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.

This was a great movie. Anything that Denzel Washington plays in is top notch. He is one of my favorite actors. You must see this one.

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.

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!

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.
