"God help me" cries Denzel, as he contemplates his ruinous addiction but it might have been better if he'd helped us by instructing Zemeckis and Gatins not to be so heavy handed in the religious symbolism department.
Denzel Washington flies a plane upside. But most of the time he's high on drugs and alcohol. "Flight" gets you through the door with the promise of thrills and chills. There are a few. But mostly it's just a crash-and-burn soap opera.
Enjoyable in the Hollywood-popcorn fashion that director Robert Zemeckis is famous for - see "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," skip "Forest Gump" - "Flight" is a drama that would have been better without Zemeckis's kneejerk proclivity for cheese.
