Sully nailed it! An exceptional movie that showed courage to do your duty even when you’re faced with a close to impossible task to save the lives of 155 passengers and crews of the US Airways Flight 1549. Capt.
Sully was able to stand his ground amidst the investigation that placed his career and reputation under the microscope. He even suffered Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Even though he did not lose a single life from the accident, he felt responsible for what could have happened if he was not able to land the Airbus safely.
The National Transportation Safety Board even implied that it could be a pilot error. After a near death accident which he survived on a very thin line and his credibility being questioned, Sully showed an extraordinary courage that should serve as an example to the people. He taught us what it means to be human.
Tom Hanks who played the role of Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger was perfect for the part.
The role of the shy, soft-spoken and dedicated captain suits him well. His portrayal of the character gave justice to this true to life movie. I would say no one could have played the role better than Tom Hanks. The award-winning director Clint Eastwood pulled off a pretty good job with Sully, but it could have been so much better if he spent a little bit more time with the principal conflict.
The whole mission impossible stunt was played for only 24 minutes tops. The rescue was portrayed too short, but nevertheless, the movie is sensational. It’s a film with a heart. Sully is a good match for United 93. Both films showed extraordinary courage. I’m proud to have watched both.
