Those expecting a tense “disaster flick” re-creation of the “Miracle on the Hudson” may be disappointed. This film is more about the investigation into Captain “Sully” Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) after he saved 155 people by landing his plane on the river. The structure alternates between his struggles with the sudden attention, the inquiry itself and the fateful flight. The flight is staged several times in a very rational manner, never wildly tense but more procedural (not surprising considering director straightforward Clint Eastwood’s style). However, the visual effects are stunningly real. While the behind-the-scenes story is fascinating and Hanks maintains his steely resolve, this is more an examination than an experience. NOTE: Sit thru the credits for footage of the real crew/passenger reunion.

 

3.5 out of 5 stars (3.5 / 5)
