Sully (2016) – Movie Review
Movie Review –
One film I wanted to point out that I had been meaning to review is Sully (2016) featuring the actor Tom Hanks (Chesley Sullenberger) and directed by Clint Eastwood. Based on the trailer this movie didn’t really have my attention though the line up and being based on real events we put it on our to-do list, besides Tom Hanks has never let us down in a movie.
We were surprised to see the story from a different understanding versus what the press had put out, though that’s typically the case as the press never tells the truth; they only say or reword things to make the dramatic effect to benefit their pockets. Sully turned out to be a very interesting film and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The cast was perfectly selected and all done very well in their roles, of course Clint Eastwood directing made the film roll-out beautifully; the vibe of the film just keeps you on edge. The true story of this film is an amazing story and at the same time a sad one seeing the standards of how someone with so much courage manages to do the impossible while the corporations do their best (with the media’s help) to destroy the hero to save a buck.
To sum it up, a beautiful movie; highly recommended!
Our Rating based on 1-5 Stars: 4.5 stars
