Flight

Flight ★★

Flight is like two films welded together. The first - interesting one - is a flight crash investigation. The other - far less interesting one - is an exploration of addiction and damaged people being drawn to one another. This is the part that makes the film boring and ponderous. The factor that makes the film offensive is its tonally uneven attitude to drink and drugs, personified in John Goodman's utterly ridiculous dealer sidekick.
