Flight | Ratings & Reviews

"Denzel Washington is aces as a commercial airline pilot who pulls off a miraculous mid-air stunt while flying with a 0.24 blood alcohol concentration, only to face his demons on the ground."


"From the nerve-ripping crash to Washington’s stinging portrayal of a boozy pilot, Flight finds Zemeckis back on track after his bumpy mo-cap ride."

Total FilmTotal Film

"Even if you remove the questionable quasi-religious touches, Flight doesn't quite soar past its narrative limitations. There's plenty of virtuosity to go around here - just precious little transcendence."

Time OutTime Out

"Next to Gump, the film has the moral force of a George Steiner essay, but what lends it that force are not the carefully calibrated moral ambiguities of the script, but the bruised, defiant soul that appears to us in the form of Denzel Washington."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"It is nearly flawless."

Roger EbertRoger Ebert

"This absorbing drama provides Denzel Washington with one of his meatiest, most complex roles, and he flies with it."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A welcome return to live-action filmmaking for Zemeckis, who hasn't lost his knack for a brilliant shot or for extracting great performances. It may not exactly be a first-class experience throughout, but there's nothing wrong with premium economy."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"Directing his first live-action film since 2000's "Cast Away," Robert Zemeckis paces it brilliantly, slowly ramping up the energy from hungover lethargy to coke-fueled confidence, while creating undercurrents of dread as Washington hits his stride."
