From the opening scene until the very end, this movie is fast paced and interesting. I was hesitant to be excited for a 2 hour 18 minutes run time, but loved every minute of it! Denzel Washington was exceptional. And John Goodman was much needed comic relief. This movie keeps yo on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

This movie begins with a gratutious sex scene that seemed rather drawn out. Pilot and Stewardess involved in sexual relationship. We then get to the intense action airplane landing scene. Just really didn't get the point of the opening scene. Denzel certainly does a fine job playing an alcoholic. It just wasn't my type of movie.

Denzel deserves the oscar for this performance. His portrayl of a drunk pilot was so believable, it was scary. If you only see 1 movie this year, this is it!

Well I took my 14 year old based on the original overview, let's just say within the first three minutes of the movie it has, drug use, alcohol use (yes it's at 7am) and full frontal nudity. Now I'm not a prude but really a lot to handle right away for my sons eyes I thought. Excellent movie though, my mom went too and liked it. John Goodman is stellar and the music in the film is fabulous. Heavy movie, lots of addict personalities come up in the film so be prepared for that. Denzel is as always one of the best actors ever, you come away not liking him at first but liking his humanizing display of alcohol addiction. All three of us walked out talking about how great a show this was!

Flight is far from up lifting but the acting is superb. It is definitely not for children. Very well done but don't expect to leave feeling happy!
