Basically, this is the plot--NTSB wants to fly upside down and recreate a crash. Denzel is this ace pilot that also happens to be a drunk and he also likes some cocaine with his alcohol. Anyway, the first half of the flick focuses on the plane crash. The latter half is about Denzel getting drunk them trying to get clean. How many times do we have to see this sheety plot? It's been done and done and done to death then done some more then done to death again. Hollywood needs therapy on how to write a script and stop relying on special effects for everything including their consistant lack of plots for sure. Watch on DVD. You'll thank me then.
