Flight - not as described!
This movie is advertised as "Flight." It should be advertised as "Addiction." This is a great movie for addicts or recovering addicts, but it had almost nothing to do with flight at all.
Set against the backdrop of a plane crash, the entire movie centers around the main character's addiction, which is in almost every scene - drinking, drugs, over and over and over. At about the 1 hour mark you just want to scream "We Get It - He Has An Addiction!"
Denzel Washington is a great actor, and we always enjoy John Goodman who was excellent in this movie. But this was an 18 minute movie about flight, followed by a 2 hour movie about addiction, and it was a clear, depressing view of how addiction negatively impacts so many lives.
It was definitely not as described, and to us, not entertaining, but rather, depressing, slow, drawn out and disappointing.
