Gripping start and a decent ending sandwich a dragged out centre section. But overall a decent movie where Denzel does what he does even if it is all a bit overlong.
I thought this was terrible. Contrived characters and plot. Unlikeable characters. Absolutely mind-numbingly boring middle. Denzel plays yet the same character again (possibly the most over-rated acter of our time - same delivery of lines no matter what character he plays). Avoid this - If your interested, wait till the DVD/Netflix...
I really liked this film - the first act is gripping and the remaining two acts are all about a man's acceptance of his alcoholism. It's a strong character-driven story and is a welcome return to live action for Robert Zemeckis.
It says 12a on this website, so I brought my wife and 12 year old daughter, needless to say it was 15a and we had to leave after the first few scenes of tits and vaginas and porn references and drug taking. So whoever is responsible for this error please cop on and do your job properly.
^ It has the IFCO rating shown before the film starts in every cinema, it's legally obliged, so you would of seen that before the film? Also, at 12 (and being with her parents), she is legally allowed watch a 15a. YOU are her parent, therefore the onus is YOU to research the background to films YOU are bringing her to. Enough of this blame culture.
Thought this was a little dragged out but well worth the watch
After the crash scene a depressing roll downhill but Denzels acting ameliorates & I agree with Linda
First part of movie is great , then it gets a bit slow, but Denzel is great in it. Doubleletter: no need to be so harsh!
Sorry if I was harsh, but I have worked in a cinema and let me tell you, it gets so irritating with parents giving out about a scene in a movie to the staff. They're the parents.
Parents don't have the ability to see into the future doubleletter, you see they don't know what is going to happen in the film, this is the beauty of a movie , not known what happens next. I'd say you got fired for being too well educated.It is so nice to hear such "common sense".
About time a real movie for adults came to our screens. Brilliantly put together and patiently laid out for true lovers of film. Has all the ingredients I need to give it a 10/10. DW is perfect for this character, nothing really new from him, but perfectly casted in this role. Faultless in my opinion.
Shockingly awful movie to sit through. Boring, contrived, pointless. Just watch the plane crash (which is admittedly brilliant) and turn it off. You've seen the best part!
