Bryan Lienesch85 - What you think is a story about surviving disaster ends up being a dramedy about coming to terms with drug addiction and the people it hurts. Unique. Very unique. That's for sure.

Dan O'Neill80 - Robert Zemeckis definitely loses himself by the end of Flight, mainly because he gives into what Hollywood likes to consider “happy”, but still features a top-notch performance from Denzel Washington, in one of the best character-studies of the year and in one of the better performances I have seen so-far. Not a perfect movie, but still a very good one none the less.

CinemaVisitor Erik75 - It's a pleasant drama that builds on Denzel Washington's splendid performance but it's just another story of an alcoholic we've seen before.
