Flash Review: Flight

4 stars

Flight-1st-posterDespite featuring a couple of terrible characters (that über-Christian couple was practically a joke) and some of the usual addict movie clichés, Flight is a tense, involving drama with the right touches of humor. The writing is very good and the acting is even better; Denzel Washington and Kelly Reilly being the clear standouts (don’t count out Don Cheadle, though). That scene with the plane going down is a nerve-wracking adrenaline rush, only bested by the climactic sequence in Argo for great 2012 suspense.
