This is a good movie. What a outstanding job that Denzel Washington did in the film.

Another really good movie from Denzel & Zemeckis. First half of movie grabs your attention and keeps it. A little soft after that, and a really great last twenty mins ! While not Denzels ***************** rates a solid B. Well worth the price to rent. Denzel still has it !!

My husband is an air traffic controller and a pilot. He said the scenes depicted on the plane were pretty accurate and you could land the plane that way. Great performances by all.

I won't give a college theater student analysis or even a movie cricitc analysis. Just that of a frequent movie patron. Despite the director's chops, the script is fairly predictable and the story line equally expectyed escept for the opening scenes and the final resolution. However, wathcing Denzel take us through the life of an alcoholic with no remorse is eminently watchable . Denzel is good

Zemeckis intends to give us a slightly more depraved version of Washington's usual charismatic hero, then pull the rug out from him. But Flight's true downward spiral is its own loss of momentum. Full Review

Just in time for the holiday travel season, Flight brings audiences perhaps the most harrowing scenes of a troubled airplane ever committed to film. Full Review

[Washington's is] a tremendous performance. It's when he is on-screen (most of the time) that Zemeckis' film really, if you'll excuse the expression, takes flight. Full Review

The film is not without flaws. It glosses over the story of the dissolution of Whitaker's marriage and does not delve deeply enough into the source of his problems with his son. A romance with recovering junkie Nicole (Kelly Reilly) rarely rings true. Full Review

No actor is as brilliant, or as cunning, as Denzel Washington at portraying superhuman coolness and the scary prospect of its loss. Full Review
