One of Denzel Washington's finest guess is he will be nominated for another Oscar. Briliantly written, perfect acting and the effects were not overdone but just right. not miss this film. Don Montalvo, TX

Worst movie ever and completely inappropriate

Pointless nudity, chalked full of profanity, glamorizing drugs and alcohol (there's 1 minute of redemption at the end that doesn't make up for the other 2 hours) They make Christians look like crazies. I could go on, but it's not worth anyone's time. I'm disappointed with Denzel for participating in this trash. SKIP IT!!!!

Denzel Washington does a fabulous job of playing the alcoholic, drug abusing pilot Whip Whitaker. The director, Robert Zemekis, gives us a heart pounding, high anxiety airplane ride from the turbulent take off to the jaw clenching crash. "Flight" is worth seeing on the big screen. Even though we love Denzel Washington, it is hard to watch him as such a self abusive & tragic character. Don Cheadle does a wonderful job playing the slick attorney trying to spin evidence and bury the damning drug test against Whip Whitaker. But it was John Goodman's amazing portrayal of Whip's drug dealer that actually brings some unexpected, but much needed, comic relief to this very intense film. The fact that John Goodman made a scummy drug dealer into someone the audience wanted to applaud when he arrived on the scene is truly genius! Even though there's a lot of melodrama and some parts of "Flight" that don't really come together, Denzel Washington does a great job!

I fly fairly often and I realize that you put your life into the pilots hands when you fly and this movie effectively showed this. The alcohol and drug abuse was so vivid you really took the ride with Denzel's character and it was cringe worthy in so many places. This movie was well written and acted but VERY dark.

Let me start by saying, I am NOT a movie-buff. I only go to the movies if its something I REALLY want to see. This movie was so brilliantly written and executed I cannot even put it into words. It will have you on the edge of your seat. When you find yourself yelling at the screen, that's when you know you are waaay too invested. THAT WAS ME! lol
