Sully Doesn't Really Fly Unless You Add a Little Bureaucratic Over Dramatization

Sully Takes You For A Ride And Not The Hudson

If you’re ok with Hollywood turning nothing into something then Sully is a pretty entertaining movie. But I couldn’t help feeling jaded as the “nothing” in question seemed grossly over dramatized to drive the plot, and I came away feeling mostly empty.

The landing in the Hudson is far from not nothing. Unfortunately, the entirety of the human drama does not stretch out as nicely as the three day odyssey that steered Tom Hanks back to Earth in Apollo 13.  So you need something to buoy only 120 seconds of low flying uncertainty and Clint Eastwood was certainly up to the endeavor.
