FLIGHT (2012) starring Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, and John Goodman is an extremely powerful movie that will have you examining your own strengths and weaknesses should you ever be branded a hero. For anytime we set a person up on a pedestal to be admired and revered, we better first be sure that their life will hold up to the public's scrutiny.

In this fast paced drama, a seasoned airline pilot suddenly finds himself forced to draw on every ounce of his personal strength and flight experience when he's forced to crash land his plane on a routine flight to Atlanta. Miraculously saving 96 of the 102 souls onboard the plane, the pilot is instantly hailed as a hero. Only after the ATSB begins digging through the wreckage, and personally investigating each member of the surviving crew, do questions arise regarding the true nature of the crash.

In retrospect, when your best friend is a drug dealer and you chug straight vodka like its water, it just might be time to evaluate your addictions. Unfortunately, our hero is too busy floating down the river 'de-nile' to even consider the fact that the level of chemicals polluting his system during the plane crash might be deemed as criminal conduct in the eyes of the court.

This is the second time Washington and Goodman have worked together. See FALLEN 1998 for another great movie. Denzel Washington has always been an extraordinary performer, FLIGHT
being further testament to his ability to take each new role and draw us into his character's struggles. Washington was nominated for an Oscar in 2013 for Best Actor. Directed by Robert Zemeckis, R, 139 mins, Drama, Action, Mystery, **** 4 stars out of 5.
