Bookmark and Share


Just watched 'FLIGHT' yesterday.

Directed By Robert Zemeckis

Starring Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, Kelly Reilly, John Goodman

Synopsis: 
In this action-packed mystery thriller, Academy Award winner, Denzel Washington stars as Whip Whitaker, a seasoned airline pilot, who miraculously crash lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe, saving nearly every soul on board. After the crash, Whip is hailed as a hero, but as more is learned, more questions than answers arise as to who or what was really at fault and what really happened on that plane?

Great acting, compelling story & characters.

When I first saw the trailer, my reaction was "Its a Denzel Washington movie! A Robert Zemeckis' movie. It's Acedemy nominated too! " Which, means it has got to be a good movie, and it did not disappoint me much (: 
Yes, I expected more, maybe a more complex plot or more intense moments? Hmm. Anyway, it's a good movie, I was even convinced that it was based on a true story.

Basically, the story revolves around Captain Whip as he pilots the plane. and he faces a situation that forces him to take action which causes the plane to crash land, killing 6 lives out of the 106. Although some people call him a hero as he managed to save the other lives, there are many prosecutions & allegations against him. 


I'll keep this short & simple.
The story, is shocking but believable. Sort of like "Amazing true stories" kind of story. Also, I believe it serves well as an awareness movie too. I shall not give any spoilers, so that is all I'll say. :P 
Plot-wise, although expected more, but the plot is pretty concrete & structured. From the flow & scenes, quite well done. There are certain scenes which got me at the edge of my seats. 
Those scenes was well done especially with the aid of good cinematography. 
Acting, I need not say, but I will. All the casts did a great job. Especially, the scriptwriters on creating the characters, making them interesting & captivating. 
Visually, the cinematography is good. Some scenes as I said, was well done with the cinematography as it evokes suspense & focus.
Music, I like the film's score. It matches the scenes well. (:

So, I'll recommend for you to watch this movie. All in all, simple story, compelling characters. 
Although there isn't much scenes which is a must watch in the cinemas, should give it a go at the silver screens.
