It doesn't have the greatest plot ever, but it's a well made movie and Denzel's acting was outstanding, worth watching.

one hell of an opening sequence. creepy...

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.

Excellent movie about recovery.

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.

Denzel Washington is the highlight of this good - if never great - movie.

Forget the fact Denzel saves countless lives on a doomed flight; this story is about an alcoholics battle with addiction. Watch to the point of the crash and then find something better to do with your time.

Has some intense sequences and a great central performance, but is bogged down by poor writing and execution.

'Flight' is only one thing; and that is an incredible character study. Washington's Whip Whitaker is a highly conflicting character for the viewer; clearly troubled yet seemingly remorseless. The acting quality combined with the crisp film style makes for an entertaining picture, but it's true that the highlight is; the events leading up to the crash in the first twenty minutes.

So don't drink and fly even if ur awesome at it!

Holy Shit, that was a good movie! Excuse my German.
February 6, 2013
The opening half hour, inclusive of the plane crash (surely that's not a spoiler) and the ensuing moments, is as gripping as it gets. From there, the film slowly descends into something less so. Sure, Washington's portrayal of a twisted hero is strong, but it's the legal backflipping of Cheadle that I was most interested in and that ultimately was a plot line not given focus. A very entertaining film with an amazing beginning.

I could watch Denzel all day long and he doesn't disappoint. Good story, well told. It would have got four stars if it had been a bit shorter. What is the obsession with films that are 2hrs plus?!?

First second into it, one of the most beautiful women gets out of bed completely nude. Next three minutes she's just chilling in front of the camera, nude, smoking a cigarette, while the star blabbers on the phone, until he sucks narcotic drugs through his nostrils. Next we see him getting on a plane as a pilot, boozing up his orange juice. Next scene we see some drug addict begging for drugs. The dealer is shooting a porn flick in the background and begging her to shoot porn for him. Next scene is a relevant scene for the title--some flight action. Great. Next scene the drug addict is threatened with rape. Then she notices a syringe, as if ready to shoot up. It wasn't until this point I turned the movie off. THIS FILTH IS NORMAL ENTERTAINMENT NOW?

Nothing special. Denzel gives a great performance but the movie is relatively boring after the heroic landing, which is bad considering said landing occurs relatively early on in the movie. Worth watching but not worth watching again.
June 25, 2014
It's great in parts. Loved the whole flight sequence and the witty James Badge Dale as the cancer patient. Unique way of portraying Alcohol addiction. Not an entertainer all the way but still a good watch.
June 22, 2014
Wow, Denzel just gets better with age. I enjoyed this from start to finish & it didn't even have to contain much action, haha.

Flight is a compelling and grown up drama with a characteristically powerful performance from Denzel Washington at its centre. While things slide into melodrama a little too much come the third act; Zemeckis's direction and the performances manage to keep the movie grounded.

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