Flight represents a kind of return to live action movies for director Robert Zemeckis after more than a decade exploring the new world of motion-capture animation. The last time he had a real actor on screen – Tom Hanks in Castaway – the film started with a plane crash. It seems Zemeckis felt he could do better, for this also starts with a plane crash so well-realised, so edge-of-your-seat spectacular that it may have you thinking about reaching up for the oxygen mask.
