You can take its title at face value – yes, it is about an airline pilot – but if you think that’s where the meaning of “flight” ends, you’re in for a jolt. The screenplay pulls no punches and Zemeckis’ masterful direction goes a long way in reminding us of what a talent he is. The film is also a terrific showcase for Denzel Washington, one of the great American actors, giving him some of his most challenging material to date.
Rating: ★★★★ 1/2 out of ★★★★★ (Excellent)
