Great Story, Good Performances, Not Boring
when i went to see flight, i had read none of the reviews or synopsis. based on the trailers, i decided to plunge headfirst into the unknown, generally a bad idea for me, i'm so picky about the movies i shell out bucks for. this was a great night of entertainment! the effects of the plane ride and subsequent landing were phenomenal, leaving me grabbing the arm rest. but the true glory is in the story of the rise and fall of the pilot, his co-conspirators, his character traits both good and bad, and his ability to finally grasp responsibility for his own actions. i didn't know until the end how this was going to play out, and that's just how i like my morality plays, ever since star trek. this is a great bit of entertainment, with wonderful performances not only from denzel washington, but don cheadle and bruce greenwood, too, and john goodman was hilarious during his short tenure. a great watch i highly recommend.
