Directed by Robert Zemeckis

Personal internal struggle is what we all go through at one time in our lives, how we choose to handle it is what differentiate us from the addicts and the mentally depressed.

Flight is about such a trouble, and the movie takes us through the downs of addiction, the repercussion it will have on your life and the lives of those who care about you. Robert Zemeckis takes us on a ride of emotional struggles with a strong cast of Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle and John Goodman Flight takes off smoothly and maintains a nice ride through the skies of drama and lands safely with you feeling fulfilled.

The movies main scene where Captain Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington) takes off and lands the plane during the planes steep nose dive, was engaging and was a terrific introduction to a great movie.

The movie also has some comic moments that will make you laugh out loud.

The movie’s plot is about Captain Whip Whitaker, who lands a plane that is going to crash in a heroic and unexplainable way that even 10 top pilots using simulators were unable to do the same.

His heroic landing saves the lives of 96 out of the 102 on board the plane, but there is a problem, while on the flight Whip was on cocaine and was drunk, which the NTSB were going to use against him as they wanted to pin the planes crash and deaths on him.

Now with a top lawyer and an alcohol problem, he and Whip has to be able to prove to a jury that Whip has no addiction problem.

Zemeckis has been away from live action movies for 12 years, one of his last live action movies was with Academy Award winner Tom Hanks in the movie Castaway.

The movie screenplay was done by John Gatins, who said that the dramatic fictional crash shown in the movie was "loosely inspired" by the 2000 crash of Alaska Airlines Flight 261. The 2000 crash had no survivors and the cause was a broken jackscrew. The pilot of the flight attempted to recover from the flights loss of control by flying the aircraft upside down.

The actors in the movie were all in top form, Denzel was as usual at the top of his game drawing you into the character with acting that is befitting of Academy Award nomination, and the movie screenplay is excellent each scene is intense filled with enough materials that will keep you awake.

Robert Zemeckis is the man behind the movie Mars Needs Mom in 2011; he is also the man behind the classics Who Framed Roger Rabbit in 1988 and the Back to the future series (1985, 1989 and 1990).

Flight is a nice dramatic movie filled with emotional scenes depicting a man with serious addiction problem and a fun movie to see and enjoy.
