When Captain Whitaker sits left seat of the cockpit, he offers his co-pilot a breath from the oxygen mask, after breathing himself, claiming it is a test. It is actually a well-known common relief for morning-after hangovers. See more »
The NTSB official conducting the investigation refers to the "cockpit data recorder." There are Cockpit Voice recorders and flight data recorders but none called a cockpit data recorder. See more »
There's whole lot of people out there whose mothers die and they don't fucking drink.
You are sick, Whip.
Yeah, well, I embrace it, shit! I choose to drink.
Yes, I do.
You choose it? Well, I don't see a whole lot of choice going on here!
I choose to drink! And I blame myself! I am happy to! And you know why? Because I choose to drink! I got an ex-wife and a son I never talk to! And you know why? Because I choose to drink!

Don't read too many reviews - experience it for yourself.
By now you know what the movie is about, so I won't rehash.
What you have here is the anti-Sully Sullenberg. Denzel is incredible as the best pilot you don't want flying your plane, or do you????? Tough questions and tough decisions as Denzel deals with, or doesn't deal with, the aftermath. You pull for him every step of the way, but the problem is which way do you pull? The visuals are very good, gripping, scary. I felt like I was hit hard in the chest while watching the plane.
Make sure the little kiddies stay home, but you need to see this movie. I hope the Academy hands Denzel the Oscar.
