It's ironic that a movie being advertised as 'the story you didn't know' is actually at its best ( ... ) when it's showing us the story we do know, namely the events of that cold afternoon in New York, on January 15th, 2009.
Sully needs a character, but especially a plot. It's no accident that Eastwood decides to put a long landing sequence, as if sensing that the drama of the film will not catch our attention. [Full review in Spanish]
Though Sully is by no means Eastwood's worst film -- I reserve that honor for 2002's Blood Work -- it does achieve the impossible. It makes an unlikeable film out of one of the few feel-good stories of the aughts.
