Synopsis: Denzel Washington plays an airline pilot who manages to save many lives in a plane crash disaster, but during investigation into the cause of the accident, some disturbing information is uncovered regarding the hero of the hour.
Main Cast: Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, John Goodman, Nadine Velazquez, Bruce Greenwood, Brian Geraghty, Kelly Reilly
The Hype: This movie has been nominated in a couple of categories in the lesser movie awards this year and it has been a huge success at the box office in the USA. A big name cast and crew make this movie talked about. Also, it has a plane that flies upside down in it, whats not to talk about?
What I Thought: I really liked this movie. The story is a beauty and what a crash sequence! The first 20-30 minutes of the film are really exciting and you feel part of the flight crew as this plane plummets to earth. The rest of the movie is a good old-fashioned investigation, but with personal touches aswell regarding the characters. As you would expect, Denzel is fantastic and I’m not sure whether he will get a nod for Best Actor this year at The Oscars because there is just so much out there this year, but it certainly wouldn’t disappoint me to see his name on the list. I certainly recommend this movie and have scored it favourably to reflect this.
Conclusions: Good story, great performances, exciting first half hour and it’s certainly worth a watch.
