Just watched this film on pay-per-view because we did not feel it would be worth seeing in the theater. Now I wish we would have seen the opening sequence of events on the big screen. I felt this was one of the better movies I have seen in several years and Denzel Washington was fantastic in it. I'm not usually one for writing reviews unless I really hated a film and felt like I'd been ripped off by purchasing it, so this is something new for me. I suggest anyone who is remotely interested in avaiation or just a good story with great acting would certainly enjoy this film. Great acting, great special effects, great excitement and drama. Well done to everyone associated with the film and Mr. Washington well deserves recongition for his role and work.
