Denzel Washington usually plays squeaky clean characters so it comes as a surprise when in 'Flight' he is a sleaze bag from the opening scene engaging in drink, drugs and 'fast wimmen'. He is an airline captain and a very competent one too as evidenced early on when his aeroplane malfunctions in a major way.

But contrary to what the trailers might suggest this is not so much an adventure film about an aeroplane in trouble but rather a study of a flawed man in trouble. It is quite good but it is a bit overlong and could have done with a snip of twenty minutes or so.
