Excerpt: Flight beginnt mit einer der ungeheuerlichsten Flugzeug-Szenen, die ich je sah: Das Flugzeug wird durch ein Unwetter gesteuert - kopfüber! Nach diesem Auftakt folgt eine der mutigsten und qualvollsten Darbietungen Denzel Washingtons.
Excerpt: A pilot whose skill saved the lives of most of his passengers when his airliner is forced into a crash landing finds himself facing prison if his alcoholism is discovered by a board of inquiry.
Summary: This movie was so predictable! At the beginning of it you could see how it was going to end. I really, really hoped that John Goodman (so enjoyable!) could change it, something funny could come from his character and his last appearance in the movie, a sort of world's humour. Instead, predictable.
Summary: After seeing the initial ads for this, I thought, well, that looks awful. But, after some word-of-mouth campaigning and Denzel's Oscar not, I thought I'd check this out. It's pretty good. It's less adventure action/adventure, which was my initial reaction and more drama.
Summary: This was an interesting movie, though heavy. Denzel Washington is what makes it work. I felt that the film dealt with alcoholism well for the most part, but in parts made it seem a bit to fun - a bit to cool. Really well done for the most part and worth watching.
Excerpt: "For the first time of my life, I'm free." An alcoholic pilot Airline captain William "Whip" Whitaker (Denzel Washington) does drugs and drinks before every flight. The plane SouthJet flight 227 malfunctions and yet Whip was able to maneuver it to help the passengers survive.
Summary: Denzel Washington delivers a great performance in this movie, well worth the Oscar nomination for best actor. I found this movie enjoyable, and it felt like I got a taste of two completely different types of movies.
