Despite the safe and uninspiring title, 'Flight' is a surprisingly bold film that is unafraid of taking some big risks. This isn't your conventional, heart in mouth disaster thriller and, although it does contain the odd spell of suspense, it's actually more of a laid back drama and character study about a man battling his demons. The action is limited to only the first half an hour or so, after which Denzel Washington's character becomes the focus of the film and the storyline develops into something unexpected, though still enjoyable. As a character study, it's very well executed and never forces one feeling or another about the lead character, allowing the audience to make their own mind up. 'Flight' takes a lot on and not everything is totally clear in parts, but it's definitely worth watching.
