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
I liked this a lot. Because I'm a Denzel fan and even if I don't like a movie he is in, I still like it. He is one of those actors who has that effect on me. Either I'm a fanboy or he really is a great actor. I suggest he is a great actor. This is a way cool movie and too close to reality for comfort. I mean, don't they screen pilots before they fly full of booze? It seems a bit thin on the ground at times, given the seriousness of the subject matter but upon reflection, the way it ends, suggests this is a super intelligent way of dealing with the subject matter. It is my second favorite movie ever about alcoholism, as one of its central themes. For those who don't care about the subject of too much booze too often, it is just another very good Denzel movie.
