Amonsgt the numerous Clint Eastwood movies that I have watched such as Flags of Our Fathers, Letters From Iwo Jima, Gran Torino, Million Dollar Baby, American Sniper, Unforgiven and now Sully, most of the movies have common traits such as taut storyline, direction par excellence, riveting acting and it was no different this time around. Sully is about Chesley Sullenberger, a commercial airline pilot, who performed the “miracle on the Hudson” by landing his aeroplane on a water body and as a consequnce saved the lives of the passengers and crew.
The happening in itself created ripples, pardon the pun, across frontiers and was aptly titled as the “Miracle on the Hudson” but the movie also delves into the aftermath of assigning accountability rather than get carried away at the moment. Mention of the movie cannot be complete without assigning credit to the acting prowess of Tom Hanks who leaves little to the imagination by bringing alive the real-life hero Chesley Sullenberger ably supported by his co-pilot played by Aaron Eckhart. Thumbs up to the movie and definitely worth a watch.
