Written by John Gatins this is the story of an ill fated flight and the alcoholic pilot who, despite his addiction, attempts to perform a miracle of aeronautical maneuvering. Not to be understated, Denzel Washington once again proves his wide range as an actor and gives us a performance worthy of his reputation and past accomplishments.
Though thin in story line and weak in some other areas (i.e. depth of the characters etc.) I give the film 3 stars because, above all else, it was entertaining and certainly gets the viewer involved.
