MOVIE: FLIGHT

PRE­MIERE MOVIES, ( FOXTEL) 8.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

SOME folks might say Flight peaks very early and they’re ab­so­lutely right. But what a peak it is – the open­ing half- hour is truly stun­ning. Den­zel Wash­ing­ton is a com­mer­cial pi­lot who pulls an as­ton­ish­ing move dur­ing a trou­bled flight that saves the lives of al­most all aboard. How­ever, when a later tox­i­col­ogy re­port shows our hero was both drunk and high on co­caine, the cel­e­brated fly­boy is brought to ground very quickly. The more we learn about this dam­aged hu­man be­ing, the more we are left to won­der how he even made it into the cock­pit at all.
