Hanks portrays Sully with subtlety and reserve.
January 15, 2019
Anchored by strong work from Tom Hanks, but it also allows Clint Eastwood to showcase his skills as a director. It's fascinating to watch this film unfold and realize that the 86-year-old continues to create work that is challenging yet entertaining.

[It] was a delightful surprise to find myself moved to tears not once, but twice, in Clint Eastwood's simple-yet-solid biopic...a film that celebrates good people doing a good thing for others simply because it's their job.

A diferencia del anterior estudio de heroísmo de Eastwood (American Sniper), Sully: hazaña en el Hudson se siente como una celebración genuina.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/ 10
December 10, 2018
This is a hopeful film that just asks us to slow down a bit, think before acting, listen before speaking and to trust your instincts.

November 5, 2018
In telling the story of the "Miracle on the Hudson", Eastwood examines the various repercussions and characters surrounding the event as if - to an admittedly mild degree - influenced by Rashōmon.

November 4, 2018
a welcome return to form for Eastwood after the depressing misfire that was American Sniper.
Full Review | Original Score: 3
August 22, 2018
Eastwood's calm, brilliant dismantling of the Great Man Theory using the great man himself.
August 21, 2018
It's ultimately Tom Hanks' performance, nuanced with facial tics and emotional eyes that betray his calm-on-the-outside demeanor, that saves the film from faltering.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 9, 2018
A decent character study of the humanity behind the people we so quickly turn into celebrities in this Internet age, where every action is analysed and under scrutiny.
April 11, 2018
Sully is too bland to be worthy of the talent of the great Clint [Eastwood], but that doesn't stop it from being a good movie. [Full Review in Spanish]
March 26, 2018
A purposeful argument in favor of a dying breed: the durable, honorable American male.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
February 23, 2018
In our too-often juvenile, preening culture, this is a story that celebrates grown-up ideals such as responsibility, personal initiative, and the integrity of doing a job well regardless of accolades or rewards.
February 6, 2018
Captain Sullenberger may not have sought the limelight, but he more than deserved it, and Sully is a fitting testament to his humble courage.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
February 2, 2018
Sully is a man of honor, who refuses to define himself as a hero after the act of heroism he starred in. [Full review in Spanish]
January 23, 2018
Tom Hanks [hasn't] fit a role so perfectly in a long time.
January 16, 2018
As tension builds inside the pilot who made headlines . . . so does the tension build in this film by director Clint Eastwood. Before you know it, you're wrapped up in the drama....

January 10, 2018
Eastwood's cinema, notwithstanding its narrow thematic range, generates ideological and emotional complexity, even on a seemingly simple narrative foundation, through a dialectical approach.
December 4, 2017
Sully unexpectedly feels like the natural follow-up and perfect companion piece to Clint Eastwood's previous directorial effort in the polarizing but nonetheless Oscar-nominated American Sniper
