The Hollywood Reporter -
A vigorous and involving salute to professionalism and being good at your job, Sully vividly portrays the physical realities and human elements in the dramatic safe landing of a crippled US Airways jet on the Hudson River on January 15, 2009.
New York Post -
At its heart, this is a thrilling tribute to a modest hero who rose to an extraordinary occasion.
Sully, an honest, skillful rumination on what makes a hero, is just one more example of how Eastwood, having directed movies only slightly longer than his protagonist had been flying planes, is still a masterful pilot himself.
Entertainment Weekly -
The reason why the movie works at all is Hanks.
On Thursday, January 15th, 2009, the world witnessed the 'Miracle on the Hudson' when Captain Chesley Sullenberger, nicknamed 'Sully' & is portrayed by Tom Hanks glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all 155 aboard. However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career.
