Denzel Washington did this well. The plane crashing scene was terrific, but I think the good parts of the film ended after the plane crushed.

I don't trust Denzel Washington driving a plane not at all. This movie really good acting and the plane crash scene in this movie was so realist.

After a spectacular opening 30 minutes, which features one of the most intense plane crash sequences ever captured on film, "Flight" deteriorates into a standard substance abuse drama. Denzel Washington delivers a standout performance, but the usually excellent director Robert Zemeckis allows the movie to become slow and predictable.

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. Der Film entwickelt sich zu einer erschütternden Charakter-Studie, wobei unsere Sympathie bis zum Abspann Washingtons Figur gilt! Washington spielt Whip Whitaker, einen Piloten, der im Lauf der vergangenen Jahre eine Toleranz gegenüber Alkohol und Kokain aufgebaut hat, die für die meisten von uns tödlich enden würde. Wir erleben ihn nach einer durchzechten Nacht mit einer Flugbegleiterin Katerina und wie er sich für die Arbeit präpariert. Zwei Linien Koks und er ist bereit zu fliegen. Die Zweifel seines Co-Piloten werden einfach von den dunklen Gläsern von Wh...

"Flight" by Yojimbo

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. Another strong performance by Denzel bolsters a character driven drama about a decent man coping with the self destruction and self deceit of addiction. Some admirably unsentimental direction by Robert Zemeckis and a restrained performance from its star prevents the story from descending into domestic soap opera and the crash sequence is absolutely gripping; in fact this compromises the film somewhat as everything that follows seems like a comparative anticlimax. Although perhaps a little too long and a little too predictable, Flight is still a well acted, solid and worthy story with enough charact...

Flight review

"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. old friend Charlie Anderson (Bruce Greenwood) and attorney Hugh Lang (Don Cheadle) help the case of Whip. Had a realistic plane crash which heightens the tension, unfortunately the believability factor is lessened since the deaths were only minimal whereas the premise which the director originally emulated, 2000 Alaska Airlines crash, none survived. Having a pilot with substance abuse issues on a plane and easily quitting drugs but not alcohol was baffling. How was Harling Mays (John Goodman) contacted when Wh...
