Sully Casts


  • One of Eastwood's and the year's best.

    September 6th, 2016

    "Everything is unprecedented until it happens for the first time." Sully (Tom Hanks). On January 15, 2009, a decidedly un-cinematic hero, Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger of US Airways, landed 155 souls into the Hudson River, safely, as he struggled with a plane crippled by birds in both engines. As we all know, the passengers and crew survive...

  • Power of the Human Spirit

    September 9th, 2016

    If there's one thing you can count on Clint Eastwood doing well, it's directing an emotionally heartfelt story. Sully continues Eastwood's success by giving us probably the most human drama of 2016.. "The miracle on the Hudson" is the subject of this Eastwood drama, starring Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart, and Laura Linney. There will be plenty of obsta...

  • He's the Captain now

    September 8th, 2016

    Greetings again from the darkness. Society has a tendency to go to extremes – hero worship for those who probably don't deserve it and character assassination for those who have the gall to be less than perfect. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger has experienced both. On January 15, 2009, Sully made the decision to land the crippled aircraft of US Airw...

  • Clint Eastwood masters doing a lot with the bare minimum.

    September 9th, 2016

    What makes Sully exceptional is that Clint Eastwood lets the story tell itself.. Specifically real with the water landing itself. Nothing is really taken out of content in the way Hollywood thinks and usually takes it.. The event was dramatic enough without anything needed to be added to enhance that.. Tom Hanks is a fine actor. Not the greatest p...

  • Fabulous screenplay and intense acting and emotional

    September 6th, 2016

    I am one of the lucky few who had the opportunity to get an advance premier screening for Sully at AMC IMAX Somerville, Boston ten days prior to the release.. This is easily the best movie of 2016. I have been following the Jan 15 controlled ditching incident of US Airways Flight 1549 case for a while. Everything about this case was covered on TV ...

  • Terrifically detailed work directed by a living legend, and starring one too!

    September 19th, 2016

    This is based on a true incident from a few years ago, where a veteran pilot actually was able to land his plane in the Hudson river in NYC and with all on board surviving. It is a terrifically detailed but slow moving work by 86 year old living legend Clint Eastwood starring the Jimmy Stewart/everyman of our era, in two time - should have been th...

  • an absorbing showcase of a man's extraordinary professionalism in the face of danger

    September 12th, 2016

    Running at a lean and spry 96min, Clint Eastwood's Sully isn't so much a clinical bio-pic in the traditional sense, but an absorbing showcase of a man's extraordinary professionalism in the face of danger. . On Thursday, January 15th, 2009, the world witnessed the "Miracle on the Hudson" when Captain Chesley Sullenburger (Tom Hanks) glided his dis...

  • Sully -- a slightly ESOTERIC review

    September 13th, 2016

    First, the film itself: . * technically perfect. What Clint Eastwood shares with Ron Howard is that they are both actors-turned-directors who consistently make technically perfect films. (Howard, on the other hand, was never voted "sexiest man alive" in his acting career. Just a trivia point...) . * what they also share is a penchant for taking la...

  • Human Heroism Done Right

    September 9th, 2016

    It was an aviation event the likes of which few, if any, in the world could ever recall happening. On January 15, 2009, US Airways Flight 1549, bound from New York's LaGuardia International Airport to Charlotte, North Carolina, was hit by a large flock of birds just thirty seconds after takeoff. The bird strike disabled and damaged both of the jet...

  • Not good

    September 20th, 2016

    Let me start off by saying that the crash and rescue scenes are very touching, the use of music very effective. . But I could not help but think during the whole movie "Why do I care if he made a mistake or not?". The trailer pretty much gives you everything you will find out about the character Sully - there is little character development, I see...
