Flight ★★★★

Fantastic opening with the scene on board the plane - tense and terrifying. 

As is endemic with so many films, needless ‘closure’ scenes at the very end. 
Denzel is indeed the big dog who can when given a decent script can roll up his sleeves give both barrells of D.

You know Denzel is gonna do the right thing - but is is enjoyable seeing how he’s gonna get there.
