An electrifying thriller directed by Robert Zemeckis formidably in his cinematic triumph, starring Denzel Washington and Melissa Leo, "Flight" is captivating, mysterious and true.

OK we get it, alcoholism ruins lives & apparently causes plane crashes. But with all jokes aside it's a pretty good watch & the crash scene was bloody intense!
June 27, 2014
Denzel Washington's captivating performance does much to elevate Flight above its poorly paced, Oscar-baiting script.
March 24, 2013
Washington done an unusual performance of his career as a drug-using drunk in this well-written, -casted and -performed tense drama that's better than his other film, "Philadelphia." (B)

good overall message on battling addiction, minus some religious overtones at times.

Excellent substance abuse drama bolstered by Washington's regal performance.

Gripping - both the presentation and the performances .

It begins with a very realistic depiction of an airplane disaster, which was really cool. However, after that, the film starts to slow down, which has its pros and cons. The movie becomes more interesting as they uncover the mystery, but at the same time, some of the excitement wanes.

Not entertaining what so ever. Flight is powerful, but also boring and lacks any excitement.

Pomminvarma Denzel vetää koko leffan pituisen Kummelin lentäjäsketsin ilman sketsiä.

I feel like the drug legalization debate is a real political conundrum that is done no favors by lightweight, cutesy reporting and rallies that pass out Doritos. Even if it has merit, how can you take it seriously? In the same way, this film tries to take a serious look at addiction and undies a lot of it with a silly John Goodman character. Unpleasant frequently, and not quite as profound as it thinks it is. But we'll acted.

Introspective and powerful. Denzel continues to be the modern day Sidney Poitier. Commendable that his recent movies seem to have a religious or at least moral undertone.
October 24, 2012
This film is NOT the type of film you would expect. This is less about an air tragedy and NOT a film that is a disaster movie or action movie. This is a film about alcohol and drug addiction. It is a heavy drama. Denzel is great.

It doesn't have the greatest plot ever, but it's a well made movie and Denzel's acting was outstanding, worth watching.
July 27, 2014
one hell of an opening sequence. creepy...
January 30, 2013
Wow! Never have I seen alcoholism portrayed so depressingly and expertly by an actor before and the rest of the cast is excellent. This is a great film that has you invested right until the ending, which contains a few surprising moments and a few (film-making wise) you wish they'd had the balls to go all the way with. The plane crash sequence is fantastic and gets you on the edge of your seat and the visual effects are very believable! John Goodman also has a few scene-stealing moments that'll crack you up for sure, he's outstanding in bit parts!

Denzel's Whip has never been complete, and the alcohol is just a piece in the million-piece puzzle of him trying to find out who he is. "Flight" doesn't control him, but - while stumbling every step of the way - acts as a vehicle for us to follow his character trekking that path to self-discovery.
July 23, 2014
Excellent movie about recovery.
November 24, 2012
Average, average...Everything about this movie just screamed it at me. It was good but drawn out...my significant other really enjoyed this film. Good cast and a decent storyline, but it was a long movie made interesting to watch because of Denzel.
