I didn't know what to expect when I went to see the movie. I figured it would be about an airplane crash and a pilot who was accused of negligence or incompetence, but it was much, much more. Denzel was great! I have always loved his acting, but I have never--and this is the truth--never seen him do a better job, even in films where he earned and was nominated for Oscars. This film has to be seen to be believed. He deserves an Oscar for his performance!
