PREMIERE MOVIES, ( FOXTEL) 8.30pm
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.
