Default Flight - High-Def Digest Review

Shannon has reviewed 'Flight.' He says this is a powerful film tackling the demons of dependency. This Blu-ray features exceptional video and audio, along with a thin assortment of extras. Robert Zemeckis and Denzel Washington have collaborated on an excellent film that serious collectors will want to add to their libraries. Recommended.

Saw this in the theater and was pleasantly surprised. Excellent by Denzel, Cheadle and Goodman (who steals the scenes he's in).

That said I'm still on the fence about picking this one up as I'm not sure how much replay value it will have. It's an awesome story but like Requiem for a Dream it would kinda make for a depressing way to start the weekend if you pop it in on a Friday night. (though Flight ends on a much more up note that Requiem by a long shot). Flight is definitely worth seeing at least once.

Loved the film. I was trying to hold my man tears at the end.

It was a great movie. A movie where nearly all characters are reprehensible. I wasn't sure how they could possibly end the movie with a good ending, but they really pulled it off.

Went to high school with the writer, John Gatins. Good kid...very happy for him! My wife and I enjoyed this film a great deal. I'm a big John Goodman fan, wonderful actor. Will definitely be picking up a copy of this movie.

For whatever reason, the scene where

Spoiler
Denzel tells the one flight attendant to tell her kid she loved him (via the flight recorder) really got me. I was like...AWWWWW that's ADORABLE!

An excellent film!! Denzel was fabulous and if it where any other year, he'd be a shoe-in for the Oscar, but this year is about Daniel-Day Lewis!!!

An amazing movie! Watched it Saturday night and still can't get it off my mind. Denzel is one of my favorite actors and I think this might have been his best work to date.
