First time watching premiere screening, all thanks to Nuffnang for the free tickets!
It was a movie directed by Robert Zemeckis, starring Denzel Washington, with Don Cheadle, Melissa Leo, Bruce Greenwood, Kelly Reilly, and John Goodman.
The movie began with Captain Whitaker (Denzel Washington), an alcoholic pilot with cocaine snorts and vodka before taking off. A strong turbulence woke him up instantly during the flight.
This photo is not inverted, but the plane.
Jesus, the plane was crashed into pieces. But miraculously, out of 102 passengers, 96 were alive. Whip was hailed as the hero for saving the 96 souls soon by then. However, nobody knew what was really happening on the plane and the reasons behind this accident.
He tried to convince everyone and even himself that, without him, no one can survive in this tragedy because no other pilot can handle the mid-air catastrophe like he did. He blamed the weather, he blamed the plane which was not well maintained.
When he was being investigated by the enforcement and at high chance of being imprisoned for whole life, he even tried to persuade Nicole, the person he met when he was hospitalized after the accident to run away with him. He was insane especially when his son refused to treat him as dad.
Between freedom and truth, he had chosen the later one. He couldn't lie anymore and he had to tell the truth.
To my surprise, I thought the plane crash would be the climax of this movie but it was more focusing on the story of captain Whitaker after the plane crash. You can catch this movie in cinemas starting from tomorrow onward!
Reminder: It might freak you out if you watch it on plane or right before boarding :p
