Clint Eastwood assures us he still has a sharp eye for brilliant directing with this intrepid true tale of heroism.

Has a good story to tell, good actors to tell it, and good enough to generate intended emotion from the audience.

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.

And all this because of a flock of geese, who didn't know about the traffic rule involving vehicles coming from the right, and who were massively sucked into the turbine engines. As a result those engines stopped working. And that's when the sh*t hit the fan. But thanks to …

'Sully' is the new biopic from director Eastwood that recounts the events surrounding the famed "miracle on the Hudson" plane landing from back in 2009. The narrative jumps around in time a lot. First we start with the aftermath of the incident, looking at the immediate effect on the plane's captain Sully. He has nightmares about planes crashing into New York and he's being questioned by investigators on whether or not his "in the moment" actions were justified as the safest route possible (despite no death or serious injury to every person on the flight). It seems this committee of individuals is more interested in finding a flaw with his personal tactics to have reason for being upset at the loss of a giant expensive aircraft being salvaged from the river. This story angle is the …
