About the Movie
Academy Award winner Denzel Washington stars in this riveting and powerful nail-biting thriller from Robert Zemeckis, the Academy Award-winning director of Forrest Gump and Cast Away. Airline pilot Whip Whitaker (Washington) miraculously lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe. But even as hes being hailed for his heroic efforts, questions arise as to who or what was really at fault.
Too many scenes focusing on Will being a drunk. Not enough time focused on the crash or causes. Movie could have been 30 minutes shorter. Also confusing as to whether this is a commentary on the physical condition of pilots in general in US aviation or a one off.

This is not an action movie, although the crash is quite impressive. I'd rather call this a drama about an alcoholic and his psychosocial decline. Lies, excuses, blames. Great acting, and realistic storyline (when it comes to the alcoholism). One of the best movies I've seen in a while.
