Holy COW I loved this film. I mean the story was a bit slow, but for some reason it didn’t matter because it was interesting for me. Denzel Washington is always so great to watch and not because he’s one handsome dude, but because I feel he acts in a way that relates to his audience. I’m always intrigued. And it’s weird because he doesn’t stray too far off of what he’s done in the past. Sort of the Julia Roberts syndrome. But I like him just like I like her.
So, first off the flight itself - cra cra. I liked the directing, I liked the location, and I liked all the other actors. Don Cheadle has been on my favorite list since Boogie Nights.
A lot of films give you the character. You either love them from the start, hate them from the start, begin to love them during a transformation, etc. But this film left me questioning how I felt about him all together, the entire film. Did I approve, disapprove, would I trust him? I enjoyed that. It was different.
4.0 stars for character development and direction
