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.

2.5/4 

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" 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...

A Sobering Effect

Robert Zemeckis is known for bringing more light-hearted fare to the box office: Back to the Future, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Forrest Gump and The Polar Express are all on his resume. But with Flight, he proves that he can handle some heavy drama just as deftly as he can comedy.

Denzel Washington delivers a knockout performance as Captain Whip Whitaker, and from the opening scene, we know he isn't a choir boy: drinking, drugs, lack of sleep - not exactly what one looks for in a pilot. An in flight nap is on order but after flying out of a storm early, the plane suddenly begins a steep dive and he has to make snap decisions, including an incredibly daring inversion, to save the flight.

Make no mistake, the plane crash has to be one of the most intense scenes I have seen at the movie...
