Flight is a 2012 American drama film. Starring Denzel Washington, it is director Robert Zemeckis' first live-action film since Cast Away and What Lies Beneath, which were both released in 2000, and the first R-rated film directed by him since Used Cars back in 1980, as well as the first ImageMovers release to date to have an R-rating. Flight was nominated for two Academy Awards at the 85th Academy Awards: Best Actor (for Washington) and Best Original Screenplay (for John Gatins). Plot On October 14, 2011, Airline captain Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington) awakens in his Orlando hotel room with flight attendant Katerina Márquez (Nadine Velazquez) after a night of sex, drinking, drug use, and very little sleep. After using cocaine to wake up, he boards SouthJet Flight 227 as pilot to Atlanta. After Whip threads the plane through severe turbulence at takeoff, copilot Ken Evans takes over while Whip discreetly mixes vodka in his orange juice and takes a nap. He is jolted awake as the plane begins its d ...

Today I was pulled over by a Racist Profiling PIG** *** Azz *** * Va State Trooper for no other reason than I was a Black male in a SUV. He had someone pulled so I got in the far left lane. When I passed them they both pulled off. he never turned off his lights & got in the left lane. I was on cruse control so I thought he forgot to turn them off or he was trying to go around me. I pulled to the right lane, he turned the lights off. then he pulled behind me & turned them back on. I asked him what had I done. He says my driver side headlight was out. Now its 11:45 AM!!! Right there I knew he was fishing. then he walked around looking for other problems when I told him the light works & turned it on.

Life got better bout 2hrs ago. she worries
Been seeing the Hot Chocolate Coolada commercial from Dukin Donuts a lot lately and I've come to the conclusion that all three individuals in the commercial must suffer from short term memory loss. As the commercial plays they take turns guessing at what it is until the final person reads the cup the beverage is in and names it given the name on the cup. What I'd like to know is how they ordered said beverages given that neither knew the name... Probably at the counter like: " ohhh lemmi get that dark looking piece in the cup with the whip cream on top"
don't give me that bs, ill whip yo head boy you know that I will

Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington) in "Flight" has all the addiction isms: denial, rage, isolation, manipulation, & the illusion of autonomy
Swap Alonzo Harris with Frank Lucas and replace Whip Whitaker (minus the coke addiction) with Malcolm X and you still have the same movie.

After a long night of drinking and sex with one of his stewardesses, William Whitaker (Denzel Washington) or Whip is understandably exhausted. But duty calls, so he pulls himself together for another day of work as a commuter pilot. On his flight from Orlando to Atlanta, the plane suddenly steeply nosedives due to a severe malfunction. Left with no choice, Whip rolls the plane upside down to stop it from diving, before righting the body to crash land in a field. Soon after he wakes up in the hospital as a hero, miraculously only losing six lives in the wreck. However, when an investigation is launched into the incident, questions arise about alcohol and drugs found in Whip’s blood test. Did the plane crash because of a mechanical failure, or was he drunk at the wheel? Whip insists he’s clean, and his union comrades are fighting hard to prove it. Whatever the outcome, he must stay sober until the hearing is over. But for Pilot Whitaker, the truth is already coming out.
we're watchin whip Whitaker do his thing right now...where u at??
Still on the tarmac... 3 hours... Pretty sure our pilot is whip whitaker.
Sarah Whitaker Help please.. my 2yo has a tummy bug and his poor wee bottom is red raw and very very sore!

I couldn't even get him in a baking soda bath as it hurt too much. If it's the bug we have all had in this house, he has another few days to get through and I need somethign to help protect and heal his bum! Thanks
In honour of Capt Whip Whitaker, no booze tonight. Caffeine, please.
Who wants to get Whip Whitaker drunk tonight?
Flight tells the story of Whip Whitaker, an airline pilot that saves a plane and nearly all its passengers from a certain death. When an investigation is carried out to look into the details of the crash, Whip's troubling lifestyle begins to surface. Writer John Latins creates a dynamic and an internal narrative confrontation for viewers to become immersed in a story full of mental struggle. It's a unique and very engaging story that stands as one of season's best efforts. Director: Robert Zemeckis Writer: John Gatins Stars: Denzel Washington, Nadine Velazquez, Don Cheadle Rating 7.3
If this movie is based off a true story, Whip Whitaker is a piece of work

Who will win "Best Actor" tonight? Will it be Daniel Day Lewis for his portrayal of the title role in "Lincoln," or Denzel Washington as Captain William 'Whip' Whitaker in "Flight?"
how could you NOT love this movie. WOW.
For someone who travels by plane almost every two weeks, I kinda regret watching "Flight" (Denzel Washington). I will never look at any commercial airline pilot the same way (with prestige, respect and awe...not to mention sober) again! It was an opener to me that like us, they also have their own demons to fight. It's okay, though, if all pilots will be like Capt. Whip Whitaker, who twisted and turned the plane and landed it with the least number of fatalities. But if not, may god bless my soul!

What stage of a flight carries the highest risk? a) Take-off b) Landing c) Anywhere in the traffic pattern d) At cruising altitude If you are a pilot don't answer. If you are a pilot and can't answer this before looking at the choices you should turn in your licence to the nearest FAA Field office. For extra credit, explain why your answer is correct.
Bought a big azz bag of cotton candy yesterday...low and behold that's what saved my life in the middle of the nite
This was another movie that came out around the same time as PBW, and once again I seemed to miss it in theaters. This film interested me because it looked like Denzel Washington had a chance to act like somebody else other than Denzel Washington for a role. He's an actor that, to me, is either typecast or simply cannot give each individual character their own physical and vocal tendencies. I see Denzel Washington every time he's on the screen, but the trailer made this one look different. Trailers are not the best way to judge things apparently. That being said, there were some things the trailer got right. Our good friend Denzel is a pilot, apparently a drunkard, and he's piloting a plane that starts going down for what is originally an unknown reason. He manages to pull some stupid crazy moves like, say, rolling a commercial airliner, and lands the plane relatively safely, saving 96/102 of the souls onboard. Of course, in the ensuing investigation, he fails his toxicology for being drunk and high ...

Whip Whitaker is such a character made for Denzel Washington. Good casting by Robert Zemeckis in FLIGHT.
My grade for Flight is an A-, this movie is so good; director Robert Zemeckis has put together a fantastic film that combines all sorts of elements including self destruction related to alcohol and drug usage, guilt, life of lying to oneself and passion. Denzel Washington plays this role as Whip Whitaker flawlessly and with so much heart, the supporting cast led by Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood, Nadine Velazquez (hot as molten lava), John Goodman (whoa!), Kelly Reilly and Melissa Leo gave Washington another reason to shine cause every scene he shot with these great actors gave the movie more reasons tokeep watching it; excellent chemistry. film is a must see... By the way Kelly Reilly's performance as Nicole is a scene stealer eventhough Denzel was the flawless lead actor.
Really praying Whip Whitaker isn't flying my plane today.
I'm so in right now just call me ...Whip Whitaker 😂😂😂

Just saw Flight last night and I can unequivocally declare: I am Not an alcoholic! I ain't got a *** thing on Whip Whitaker et al. Geez.
REVIEW: FLIGHT Four strikes and you’re out for Mr. Denzel Washington You have to be a great actor to get four strikes in my book. I mean, I’ll let a few bad movies slide because I know the potential for greatness is still there. But it looks like the magic has started to wear out for one Mr. Denzel Washington. This week’s movie, Flight, will be the fourth consecutive movie starring Washington that I have given a grade of C- or lower. Flight is about a talented pilot who is also battling some personal demons. When a scheduled flight takes on some mechanical issues, it’s up to Whip Whitaker (Washington) to land the plane, if possible. The aftermath of the landing/crash is a sordid look at the problems alcoholism can bring upon a person’s life. I find it absolutely baffling how a talented actor such as Washington, can make such unwatchable movies lately. The Book of Eli (which, sadly, has the been the best of his recent movies), Unstoppable, Safe House and now Flight are all borderline terrible mov ...
Every old person with a walker from Atlanta is on my flight! Wher ia Whip Whitaker when u need him?

I've got a problem ya'll.i'm like Whip Whitaker.except my addiction is chocolate...I gotta go buy more Vday candy b/c I keep eating it
Whip Whitaker is putting on a legendary *** performance right now.
At the end of the movie "FLIGHT" on Whip Whitaker's desk, filling half the frame in a close up is "The Resolution For Men." I did a double take and hit rewind. Yep, there it is! Congrats to Alex & Stephen Kendrick. Having now seen the film I can't recommend or endorse it due to a lot of its bad content (especially the beginning which requires a lot of fast forwarding), but it was awesome to see such a godly book deliberately featured in the film, especially a film with a redemptive theme involving fatherhood.
I want Whip Whitaker to fly my plane.

Definition of unlikeable character: Whip Whitaker and John Goodman as a drug dealer? This movie has no respect for anyone
Well, Robert Zemeckis' newest film Flight, with its much-touted lead performance by Denzel Washington as alcoholic hero pilot Whip Whitaker, left me feeling ambivalent as have most of Zemeckis' films. The most electrifying film of this award season, for me, is still Django Unchained. It's easily Quentin Tarantino's most well-written, directed, and, most importantly, entertaining film since Pulp Fiction. QT made Hollywood very uneasy with his long overdue cinematic answer to Gone With The Wind. ; )
This weeks review: Flight. Denzel Washington stars as Whip Whitaker, a commercial airline pilot who miraculous crash lands a crippled aircraft saving 100 passengers and marked a hero..thats great..except he was drunk and high at the time..and most of the time! This is a great film that could easily murge into midday movie territory if not for the great performances from all involved..especially Denzel and John Goodman whos hilarious in his small role. A bit long, but a fine piece of filmmaking by Robert Zemekis (Forrest Gump, Back to the Future). 7/10
Q Breakfast Newspaper Review... Friday 18th January 2013 DENZEL'S OSCAR THRILL Denzel Washington says his Oscar nomination is a "thrill". The 58-year-old was on the red carpet in London's Leicester Square last night for the premiere of Flight. He's up for best actor for his performance as substance-addicted pilot Whip Whitaker in the drama. TED TWO IN PIPELINE Mark Wahlberg's confirmed a sequel to Ted is in the works. The actor had a hit with the movie - about his foul-mouthed, drug-smoking teddy bear - last year. He also says he and Ted will be making an appearance on stage at the Oscars next month. RIHANNA CLOTHES TO LAUNCH AT FASHION WEEK Rihanna's new fashion collection will make its debut at London Fashion Week.

"Flight" is a wonderful study of character pilot William "Whip" Whitaker which Denzel Washington executes to perfection.
Kudos to Denzel Washington for being nominated for an oscar" Whip Whitaker" in the movie "Flight.
10. FLIGHT - Robert Zemeckis’ first live action film in sometime. Denzel Washington is at the top of his game and he’s playing a character he’s never played before. It’s a griping story of alcoholism and redemption. It’s a wonderful look at the human condition and really makes you emphasize with Washington’s Whip Whitaker. Don Cheadle, Bruce Greenwood and Kelly Reilly are great in their supporting roles and John Goodman steals the scene every time he’s on screen. Kudos to the visual and special effects teams for the stunning plane crash scene that literally had me on the edge of my seat. 9. LES MISERABLES – Wow. I didn’t know a musical could be made like this. No one in this movie burst into song, quite the opposite actually. As most of the movies lines are sung in lyrics throughout the performers only occasionally trickle into regular dialogue. Hugh Jackman has been waiting to play Jean Valjean all his life. Anne Hathaway is amazing. And I don’t know where all the hate for Russell ...
So torn between Abe Lincoln and Whip Whitaker tonight.
Denzel was so good in Flight. When I see him now, I think he's actually Whip Whitaker.

Denzel in "Flight" was on point! Whip Whitaker one of his best roles ever! A great father-son redemption story!
See the movie "Flight"? Luggage carried by Denzel Washington's character, Whip Whitaker, was ...from our store!
Flight ('12 Zemeckis) [** out of 4] Well-made and -acted, but a little disappointing in the way it sets up prickly questions it isn't ready to answer. It's easy to imagine a more tough-minded version of this story taking on issues like, say, why we need our heroes to be role models as well, or the tricky issue of exceptionalism, wherein the fact that Whip Whitaker is a genius-level airline pilot renders moot the fact that he's a mess otherwise. And I admit that I'm intrigued by the possibility- floated then suddenly dropped by the movie- that Whitaker's issues are precisely why he's a genius-level pilot, with the drugs both calming his nerves and sharpening his focus in a time of crisis, when a sober person would be freaking out. Or, as Sean Burns, that drinking and snorting cocaine make him awesome at his job. Unfortunately, FLIGHT ends up taking the path of least resistance and pursuing the well-trodden "addiction" formula, with Whitaker forced to come clean about his addiction and seek help. Which seem ...
Flight - great character piece. Denzel Washington is a fantastic actor and his performance as Whip Whitaker is his best in years. 4/5 stars.
My review for 'Flight' on Rotten Tomatoes: 4 1/2 stars-Denzel Washington just goes and adds Whip Whitaker to his...
I would be so down for a "Flight" spin-off that has Denzel's Whip Whitaker forming some sick bond with Tilda Swinton's "Julia" character.
Cinema Flight Friday, December 28, 7:00 PM Saturday, December 29, 7:00 PM Sunday, December 30, 4:00 and 7:00 PM Wednesday, January 2, 2:00 and 7:00 PM Thursday, January 3, 7:00 PM Audiences may experience turbulence during the thriller, but it's worth it. Critics agree: Denzel Washington soars in his latest role. The plane has landed. Washington plays pilot Whip Whitaker who miraculously lands a malfunctioning plane, saving almost everyone on board. Although the Oscar winner's character is first perceived as a hero, his problems with alcohol and drugs soon rise to the surface, and his severe addiction could lead to prison time. Flight is a character study disguised as a thriller. The near-crash is just the beginning of the story -- and the story is not what you think. David Edelstein of Vulture comments: "No actor is as brilliant, or as cunning, as Denzel Washington at portraying superhuman coolness and the scary prospect of its loss. Watch him in Flight as airline captain "Whip" Whitaker (excellent name! ...
only worth it of you cast as Whip Whitaker.
But if course she gonna take care of Whip Whitaker Jr !
Even while playing "Captain Whip Whitaker" in the movie FLIGHT, Academy Award winning actor Denzel Washington...

Flight Review, I was really looking forward to Robert Zemeckis' return to live action because he is one of my top 5 favorite directors. If you have seen Back to the Future or Castaway or Forrest Gump or Who Framed Roger Rabbit then you will understand. However, I was a bit disappointed in the film mostly because of a few caveats which I will get to later. Overall, this movie is very much a personal story about Denzel Washington's character Whip Whitaker. The film portrays him as a alcoholic and drug addict in a very adult way. They never give any cheesy reason of why he drinks and they don't portray him as someone who is nonfunctioning without drugs. In fact, he needs drugs to operate, to fly and to live. In fact, he seems to need drugs because they sharpen his senses. That doesn't mean that drugs haven't ruined his life, but it has caused him to lose everything from all his friends and family to the point that he seems to lead a hollow existence. In the beginning of the movie, the plane crash is depicted ...
Denzel Washington is the go-to man when you’re searching for a Blockbuster hit. The 57-year-old heartthrob is marking the arrival of another cinematic masterpiece with his latest film Flight, taking on the role of pilot Whip Whitaker
My thoughts on FLIGHT: "Denzel Washington gives one of the best and most compelling performances of the year as Whip Whitaker, an airline captain with an intense alcohol affinity. So intense that it's actually the crux of the story being dealt with here. Not only does this guy have to acknowledge his own addiction, but he also has to keep his head above water when news surfaces that his intoxication may or may not be a component to six deaths in a could-have-been-catastrophic plane crash. Delves into pretty serious waters regarding destructive habits, and Washington completely sells it. Less showy and flourish-y than some of Robert Zemeckis's other technologically innovative live action films, but the plot doesn't necessarily require 'wow factor.' Commendable supporting cast including Don Cheadle, John Goodman and Kelly Reilly. A harrowing, but ultimately powerful and thoughtful, character study." - 3/4
Denzel Washington gives a strong performance in "Flight" He plays Whip Whitaker, pilot of a doomed 727; in theaters now
I also saw FLIGHT, starring Denzel Washington, this weekend. I hate it when friends, movie critics, etc. … ruin a good movie by revealing too much of it, so I’ll stay away from the details. That being said, I don’t think that I’ll spoil it for you by saying that a commercial jet, piloted by Washington’s character, Whip Whitaker, crashes during this movie. I mean, really, you weren’t surprised when the ship sank during “Titanic” were you? As dramatic as the action scenes are in Flight, they quickly fade away as you’re completely taken in to the story by a really top-notch cast. In addition to Denzel, there were three who really stood out for me. Kelly Reilly, has been around for 20+ years. She’s appeared in dozens of movies and was even nominated for the Laurence Olivier Theatre Award for Best Actress of 2003, but unless you've seen the two Sherlock Holmes movies, you probably haven't seen or heard of her. That will change after you see her as Nicole, a very troubled young woman, in th ...
In "Flight," the new film from Robert Zemeckis, something unbelievable is demanded of Denzel Washington's character, Whip Whitaker. After a coke and booze bender, the commercial airline pilot finds himself in the middle of a mid-air disaster and has to find a way out of it.
Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington) clearly likes to party. In the opening scene of “Flight” we see him waking up from a night of sex and drinking to doing a line
Whip Whitaker (Denzel Washington) is a high-functioning addict — the kind lucky enough to have found something in life they are incredibly, inexorably skilled at. Think John Bonham delivering the greatest drum solos in rock history or Dock Ellis pitching a no-hitter while out of his mind on LSD. Whi...
In "Flight," which hits theaters this Friday, John Goodman plays Harling Mays. Mays is a friend/drug dealer of Whip Whitaker's (Denzel Washington), an airline pilot whose alcoholism has him embroiled in a scandal.

(Continued from previous post) Denzel eschews the gritty, action movies he's been in recently (though good) and reminds you how great of an actor he is. This performance as "Whip Whitaker" (pilot; addict, hero) goes up with his other great performances in the past. The way he portrays this character will be studied for years to come from aspiring actors. Both Pacino and DeNiro (rightfully so) are recognized as the best of their generation, yet haven't had an Oscar worthy performance in some time now. This role delivered in "Flight" puts him up there with them if he hasn't already. An improbable plane landing, the "spin" afterwards, Whip's backstory, the trial, and his choices have you run the gamut of emotions for this character. Action, comedy, drama, and the role of faith are all packed into this movie-the pacing is frantic at once and then subtle to really let the movie develop. Great supporting roles from Don Cheadle, Goodman, and McKeesport's Tamara Tunie make this a special film that's not to be mis ...
