I watched this not really knowing what to expect. I thought it was going to be another disaster movie. It starts that way but quickly becomes all about one of the pilots played by the always excellent Denzel Washington. As pilot he manages to avoid over 100 passengers being killed by dramatically rolling the plane in free fall. However there are a small number of fatalities and the ensuing investigation is one of the most fascinating I have watched. Don Cheadle and John Goodman are also brilliant and overall this is a great gritty film. It isn't spoiled by a predictable Hollywood ending. I give this 9 out of 10. It's that good.
