Box Office
Vadim Rizov quote icon Flight should at least soar into the black if people respond with good word-of-mouth, even if only for the novelty of a big-budget adult drama that aspires to intelligence.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconFlight reminds us of what Washington can do when a role hits him with a challenge that would floor a lesser actor.
