Director Clint Eastwood, brings his story to the big screen with the mushy simplicity of creamed corn.

Sully is about the man who landed the plane on the Hudson. Who better for Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger than Tom Hanks in white hair and matching moustache?

Eastwood handles the action sequences with the same cool-headed efficiency as Sully brought to his piloting - you suspect that Eastwood felt a kinship with this no-frills, no-nonsense man who was just doing his job.

One of 2016's very best.

Eastwood is not a showy filmmaker and almost everyone on the planet will know the movie's outcome. That makes it all the more remarkable that there are plenty of white-knuckle moments.

How do you make a full-length feature film about the "miracle on the Hudson", dramatic and inspiring as it may be? Easy. You get Clint Eastwood, 86, to direct.

Even a likable and authoritative performance from Tom Hanks can't keep this movie in the air.

Obviously only one man could play such a solid figure of American heroism: Tom Hanks.

Sully is the kind of film that Howard Hawks might have made in times gone by. It's a tale of quiet, unfussy heroism; of highly trained professionals doing their jobs in the most challenging circumstances imaginable.

Eastwood's message that no good deed goes unpunished feels misplaced, but for the crash sequences and Hanks' turn it's worthwhile. But for goodness' sake, don't watch it on a plane.

Somehow it works.

Eastwood has delivered a no-frills affair, almost to a fault. A brisk 96 minutes, the movie is workmanlike in its approach, yet still manages to be stirring thanks to the subject matter.

For the most part, Eastwood's no-frills approach works.
Sep 15, 2016
Sully may be just want the mass audience wants in the 21st century: a disaster film with a happy ending.
Sep 15, 2016
As Clint Eastwood's Sully proves, the Miracle on the Hudson is actually lousy material for a movie.
Sep 12, 2016
A fierce, stark, haunted drama of horror narrowly avoided.
Sep 11, 2016
You've heard of straw men? This is a straw movie.
Sep 9, 2016
Neither Eastwood's controversial politics nor his worst storytelling instincts could really mess up Sully.
Sep 9, 2016
Clint Eastwood still has surprises in him.

Sully can feel like a dutiful, hagiographic slog, even though its actual running time barely tops 90 minutes and both Hanks and Eckhart give warm, understated, funny performances in the only two roles developed enough to qualify as real characters
