Overview

In Robert Zemeckis' drama FLIGHT, alcoholic pilot Whip Whittaker (Denzel Washington) does a miraculous job crash-landing a plane that has suffered a severe mechanical breakdown in midair, however the mandated investigation into the incident will inevitably lead to the discovery that he was flying the plane while drunk and on cocaine. As he attempts to sober up, Whip befriends a fellow addict he meets during his post-accident stay in the hospital. Soon he fails in his attempts to white-knuckle himself to sobriety, and with the help of his favorite drug-dealer (John Goodman) and his lawyer (Don Cheadle), Whip must prepare to testify about what happened on that fateful flight.

"[Washington is] completely convincing at the controls..." - 11/01/2012 Los Angeles Times


"[R]edeemed by Mr. Washington's stirring portrait of a skillful, prideful pilot hitting bottom." - 11/01/2012 Wall Street Journal


4 stars out of 4 -- "FLIGHT segues into a brave and tortured performance by Denzel Washington -- one of his very best. Not often does a movie character make such a harrowing personal journey that keeps us in deep sympathy all of the way." - 10/31/2012 Chicago Sun-Times


"Robert Zemeckis brings a tormented man into sharp focus for mainstream audiences in this thriller." - 11/01/2012 USA Today


"Mr. Zemeckis is in very fine form in FLIGHT and when he sends a camera whooshing down the aisle of the failing plane, the controlled movement both conveys the contained frenzy of the scene and visually echoes the chill racing along your spine." - 11/02/2012 New York Times


"Directing his first live-action film since 2000’s CAST AWAY, Robert Zemeckis paces it brilliantly, slowly ramping up the energy..." -- Grade: A- - 11/01/2012 A.V. Club


"It's a solid, burnished work made about adults for adults and anchored by Denzel Washington in a role that calls for some classic star gravitas." - 11/01/2012 Movieline


"With nerve-wracking authenticity, director Robert Zemeckis -- known for his wizardry with computer-generated illusions in such films as FORREST GUMP and THE POLAR EXPRESS -- puts viewers onboard..." - 11/02/2012 Washington Post


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[Washington is] a ball of fire, and his detailed, depth-charged, bruisingly true performance will be talked about for years." - 11/01/2012 Rolling Stone


4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]bly steered by an on-form Zemeckis, FLIGHT is well worth boarding." - 03/01/2013 Total Film


"With FLIGHT, director Robert Zemeckis has made a solid, unshowy character drama....It's a sober piece about a man's moral choices, built around a creditable central performance from Denzel Washington..." - 02/28/2013 Uncut
