'Flight' is predictable in its plotting and soft in its conclusions. But thanks to that dynamite opening and Washington's effortless performance, it's also an enjoyable, compelling slice of old-school melodrama.
Flight reminds us of what Washington can do when a role hits him with a challenge that would floor a lesser actor. He's a ball of fire, and his detailed, depth-charged, bruisingly true performance will be talked about for years.
AA, God, and prayer are invoked by various characters with various religious convictions in John Gatins' unflinching screenplay, each time with a seriousness, modesty, and ease rare in so many movies about drunks and their journeys.
There's something in almost all of Denzel Washington's performances, a calm in the midst of a storm, that separates him from the rank and file, that elevates him to a status among the truly gifted actors of any generation.
