Aro Recommended Flight


USA 2012, 133 minutes
Dir. Robert Zemeckis
Rating: [R16] Offensive language, drug use and sexual themes.
Genres: Suspense/Crime, Drama

Topics: Aviation.


“A unique, audacious studio movie, kicking off as a star-driven spectacle before whittling itself down to a raw and riveting character study. ”~Slant

Aroview: Denzel Washington plays a lauded pilot whose heroic landing of a crippled airliner is called into question when a history of alcoholism and substance abuse surfaces.

While only limited in exploring this complex moral terrain and is guilty of lurching in the final reel, dir. Robert Zemeckis lends class to this melodramatic portrait of a man-as-his-own-worst-enemy, and a maturing Denzel Washington is great to watch, finally rid of his archetypal righteous image.
