The main problem with Sully is not the acting (Tom Hanks is perfectly cast), but the story, which, though compelling, feels like Clint Eastwood stretched as far as he could go, despite the fact this is his shortest film to date. The part that actually showed the landing and rescue were done tastefully, but the whole investigation and trial portion dragged on far too long and yet didn't feel like it added much at the same time. A well-meaning biography of certainly an amazing event, but just never finds its footing.

cllint eastwood director and tom hanks should be a recipe for greatness. but there is no story here. its based on a true story of a plane landing safely in the river. so where is the story? its a 2 hour movie that could be told in 10 minutes. its like one of those corny lame tv films you see in the daytime. its just poor. just nothing to see here at all. watch it when its on tv and your ill and bored after its over if you can get through the boredom and corny nature of it. your soon forget about it. i felt like im being sold a empty box with this movie. its laid on thick but there's no story its like they are trying to make a drama out of a simple incident. plane has to land on the river. all survive the end. boring. and oh so corny

Sully is a solid biographical drama about the 2009 "Miracle on the Hudson". It's a short lean production at about ninety minutes. Compared with the likes of American Sniper, Clint Eastwood plays it safe with Sully. Tom Hanks' role as Captain Sullenberger is a stark contrast from the dark and brooding Chris Kyle as played by Bradley Cooper. He's the consummate professional who happened to know how to do his job at the right moment. Laura Linney and Aaron Eckhart provide fine support as his wife and copilot respectfully.

The re-enactments of the landing on the Hudson were exciting to watch, but they didn't take long and the rest of the movie felt like a lot of filler. Might have made more sense as a TV drama, where it could have been an hour long and stretched by commercials.
