        Quality film. I figured that this would be overrated after all the hype it received, but this ended up being pretty entertaining. I like the fact that no matter how dark the story was, the film was able to shine a light and end on a positive note. The only thing that sucks about this movie is John Goodman, who's absolutely obnoxious.

        Denzel Washington is a very convincing drunk.

        A standard tale of addiction ramped up by the quality impetus of the storytellers involved, chiefly Denzel Washington and director Robert Zemeckis. Can a better craftsman deliver a better product? And so two disasters loom: one, a pilot self-destructing on the ground, and two, a plane self-destructing in mid air. Together for the very last time ... It works okay, only the knucklehead emphasis given John Goodman, a cartoon character played like a cartoon, and his musical cues, distract.
