A disturbing story in which the transformative moment happens near the very end.

Heavy handed "addiction is bad" movie which had some good moments. Denzel is superb and great supporting cast. Tough to see most of the movie seeing Denzel's character just spiraling down.

This was a good movie. Denzel was spot-on as usual. The tension was well done. It was not particularly entertaining but it was compelling.

An alcoholic and drug abuser air plane pilot manages to complete the miraculous landing after a mid-air mechanical problem on an airplane makes flying the craft difficult. However, the role his addiction plays in the landing is the question for the NTSB to answer. Also, how and weather the pilot can recognize his problem with drugs brings this film to a end.

The Lost Weekend meets The High and the Mighty. Denzel is good, too bad the script wasn't.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: An accident is conveyed in a very vivid and realistic fashion. It may be intense and frightening for some audiences. There are also scenes of heavy drug use.

  • britprincess1 rated this: 4 stars out of 5.

Sexual Content: One woman is seen fully nude frontal and behind. No frontal male nudity is shown, other than a shirtless torso. Male backsides are shown, including that of protagonist Whip. Sex is implied a few times, but never explicitly seen.

  • britprincess1 rated this: 4 stars out of 5.

Violence: The violence is minimal in the conventional sense, but blood is spilled in an accident. Dead bodies and injured survivors are shown. People scream in pain. The protagonist's eye is damaged and bloody and shown in close-up. The violence is more of that nature.

  • britprincess1 rated this: 4 stars out of 5.

Coarse Language: The f-words and mf-words are used a number of times. Profanities, blasphemous phrases, and rough slang are used frequently, but the words tend to blend into the background and aren't used for shock; they flow with the story and their use makes sense.

Other: This film deals with mature topics such as alcoholism.

"Honey, could you hustle us up a couple of daiquiris and a cocktail weenie? On second thought, just bring the booze, I brought my own weenie. Oh, she's offended. And she should be. I'm a pig. And I hate me. That's what we have in common, Nurse Ratchet. We both hate me."

"What the hell kind of meds they giving you? Alprazolam: that's generic xanax. Hydrocodone: that's generic Vicodin. Probably Canadian. Where's the dihydromorphine? Is this amateur hour?"
