The film itself is a sure-handed Eastwood direction, with Tom Hanks starring, and good performances from the whole caste (many real life participants). It's a Great disaster movie but with differences. The previews give a good idea and did the film proud. The film's first distinguishing feature is of course that it is very close to the facts, true for all intents and purposes. Second it looks at the post accident investigation, which is not usually in the limelight and where covered in the news, is usually a more grim and impersonal affair. As the film's investigation chair points out at the end, not something he has ever before been able to do with the pilots attending. Next, it is a very short sharp 'disaster'; it's the icing on the cake of a view of events, as much or more about the mop up and recovery than just the accident. This is a more personal, human and unexpected but visibly life changing perspective, that is very hard to make interesting and dramatic, but which Eastwood manages. Lastly, as we all know the outcome, Eastwood uses a narrative back-and-forth that helps join up the before and after and maintain the dramatic impact of the 200 seconds of flight and 7 minutes of river rescue, which could have been lost in the 93 minutes of the film. The chopping could have been disruptive (nearly was), but was finely balanced in an effective and engaging way.Read more ›
A rapidly aging "Tom Hanks" as the main star, needs no introduction for this movie; after all, he was the brilliant limelight of the emotive and truly compelling "Castaway". Even in this thrilling plot, he always has an opportunity to enrich with his such likable manner, infectious character, sense of humour and convincing axemanship. It gives this tense drama such a believable and engaging perspective. This airline-film is largely centered on this realism aspect at all times, we all know Eastwood isn't into all the recent nonsense with overly-done dramatics, flashy narratives and workman-like cut and paste jobs; this film tells it as it is, a real and urgent development without going overboard.
I think some of the simulator scenes might have been a little overzealous given the running time, even a master such as 'Tom Hanks', might have featured a little too much airtime at times. The negatives overall seem rather trivial for such a rock-solid cut such as this. Taking into account the 12A BBFC classification, I found the film's sentiment overall is much more of a mature sitting than the certificate suggests. Never-the-less, casual watchers and airline enthusiasts alike are in for a satisfying treat with this one.
This real life drama unfolded in front of our very eyes on January 15th 2009 and featured on every international news station as one of aviations miracles crediting the pilot as a hero due to his feat of aviation skill and flying ability as has never before been witnessed.
After a catastrophic bird strike just 3 minutes after take off, causing the aircraft to malfunction, Captain Chesley Sullenberger (Sully) landed his aircraft with 155 passengers and crew on board on the Hudson River saving all on board.
However, the plot thickens when the need for this heroic event is brought into question during an aviation investigation that threatens to ruin the pilots reputation. The story portrays investigators who believe the pilot over reacted and could have landed safely at a nearby airport.
This is something you will decide based on the events portrayed in the movie, but if your unsure just watch the final outcome and if you get the chance YouTube the real life interviews with the pilot which will give you a sense of his actions and credibility.
This is 'Sully's' story -
On the 15th of January 2009 Flight '1549' shortly after take-off was struck by a flock of birds, a collision that disabled
both engines, pilot 'Chesley Sullenberger' (Sully) played by 'Tom Hanks' and his first-officer 'Jeff Skiles' (Aaron Eckhart)
had to quickly make a decision on what course of action offered the best chance of survival for the 155 passengers and
crew on-board....with the plane rapidly losing altitude and time running out the decision was made to land the plane on
the icy waters of the Hudson River a decision that almost certainly saved the lives of all on-board.
Whilst the film does indeed feature the unprecedented landing it does in the main feature not only the frenzied media
interest but the questions that would be asked of 'Sully' and his first officer at a The National Transportation Safety Board
who have come up with simulations of the event that suggest 'Sully' could have turned back and successfully landed the
plane at one of the local airports, a trial/investigation that could destroy the pilots reputation and credibility....could they
really have done things differently or was the decision to land the plane as they did the correct course of action ?
A superbly made film based on the real events that took place both during and after the incident...certainly a film that
will hold your attention throughout....
