Armed men hijack a New York City subway train, holding the passengers hostage in return for a ransom, and turning an ordinary day's work for dispatcher Walter Garber into a face-off with the mastermind behind the crime.
Whip Whitaker is a commuter airline pilot. While on a flight from Orlando to Atlanta something goes wrong and the plane starts to fly erratically. With little choice Whip crashes the plane and saves almost all on board. When he wakes up in the hospital, his friend from the airline union introduces him to a lawyer who tells him there's a chance he could face criminal charges because his blood test reveals that he was intoxicated with alcohol and cocaine. He denies being impaired, so while an investigation is underway, he is told to keep his act together. However, letting go of his addiction is not as easy as it seems... Written by
The NTSB has never used "Act of God" as a reason for an aircraft accident. The accident in this movie would never be classed as such in any event as it was clearly a failure of the airplane itself. See more »
All right gentlemen, I need that table cleared and placed in front of Whip with a chair behind it. Now, please! I need a glass of water, I need a credit card, I need a hundred dollar bill.
I've, I've got a twenty.

The ending was unbelievably bad. How many times have we seen that? The end of Straw Dogs with Dustin Hoffman comes to mind, only less so. There are scenes where the acting is just awful, including especially the breakfast scene when Cheadle appears for the first time. Setting up the status of the investigation to inform the audience was like being spoon fed, and by wooden, inept characters. And not in a good way. Goodman, while intended to be over the top, was playing crazy for the sake of playing crazy. Not genuine, not believable, not good. I love the guy, but that character was terrible, and terribly delivered.
