Remember, if they ask you anything about your drinking, it's totally acceptable to say "I don't recall".
Hey, don't tell me how to lie about my drinking, okay? I know how to lie about my drinking. I've been lying about my drinking my whole life.

Not knowing who to root for equals quick disinterest
I love Denzel Washington. I don't mind that he grits his teeth, steels his gaze and does that funny tongue in cheek thing. If that's his toolkit, it's a good one and playing a flight captain fits straight into it. But this is not his finest hour.
This film starts out looking like a gritty moral dilemma, an heroic story with a twist. It ends up leaving you feel drained of interest, with only a dull anger replacing suspense, concern or hope.
One or two funny and unexpected twists, but ultimately succumbs to Hollywood treatment, leaving a sense that the Director didn't get to say what he wanted.
It draggggggs for a good 70%of this film.
Goodman, not Washington, carries this film, but is used far too sparingly and feels like he's walked in accidentally from the neighbouring studio.
