Sully – Blog Review (12 Dec 2016)
Sully (2016) from Clint Eastwood & Tom Hanks for Warner Bros, published on the SBB film blog 12th December 2016.
Excerpt: “I was surprised to leave Tom Hanks’ new film ‘Sully’ pondering that age-old debate: which is more trustworthy – human judgment or mechanical precision?
No one disagrees that the 2009 ‘Miracle on the Hudson’, in which US Airways Captain Chesley Sullenberger crash-landed an Airbus A320-214 on the Hudson River, was a spectacular and courageous feat – but at the time, there was some doubt about whether it sprung from a brave decision, or a potentially lethal error.
Clint Eastwood directs, giving us a stirring and thoughtful portrait as the captain undergoes the post-crash investigation and media circus, and you cannot help but marvel that the event itself really took place – never has the number ‘155’ filled me with such relief.”
