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 he’s being hailed for his heroic efforts, questions arise as to who or what was really at fault.

    Very moving story. Long film, could not take my eyes or ears away from it. A few good tunes in there too. Enjoy.
  • Flawed Hero story

    Denzel Washington is fantastic in this. The film does slow up a bit. But the story is good. A very American redemption story. Actually Don Cheadle was excellent also. Recommend
  • Disappointed

    By Diane McKinlay
    Started well, but soon drifted away and was boring to watch in the end. Great acting, but story just drifts along with little to keep your interest.
  • Very good

    I loved this movie, so many things to learn from it and Denzel is great as a pilot, shows the downside of what alcohol and drugs do to people, a reality movie, is great, instead of fantasy all the time! nice work!

    Would recoment this
  • Great film

    By JimmyAlbion
    Very good film, something I don't understand is people who are saying how it wasn't suitable for their teenage children, it clearly says 15 years old and over and states what it includes, if you had problems showing this to a 16 year old + then you should seriously reconsider your parenting.
  • Not much action

    By ppssttjj
    This film is ok, it's well acted and it touches on some raw issues but if you're looking for an action packed film like I was then this is not the film for you. Once the plane crash happens the film turns into a pure drama exploring alcoholism. I was expecting the crash to be more central to the film with more focus on the crash investigation, a bit more of a mystery/thriller. Instead of this the plane crash and subsequent crash investigation was a sub-storyline to Whip's battle with alcohol.
