Sully is 100% a real person, but he is certainly a hero. His heroic action in 2009 was powerful enough the shake the whole U.S.
Sully (2016) tells the story of Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, who was the captain of the Airbus A320 of the US Airways. In the Flight 1549 on January 15, 2009, his plane, unfortunately, hit a flock of geese. The engine was destroyed and the plane seemed to face its most tragic end. Captain Sully, with his absolute calm, successfully reassured the passengers, as well as miraculously landed the Airbus on the Hudson River, saving the lives of 155 passengers aboard. The movie Sully (2016); however, will not focus on Sully’s heroic action (actually, this happens during just a few minutes). The film is mainly about a Sully after that event, which was now famous as a real-life hero in the eyes of public and media. An investigation was conducted and his reputation and career were extremely threatening.
Captain Sully is played by Tom Hanks and this is an ideal selection of producers. With Hank’s talent and experience, the calmness, the deep thought and Sully’s worry has been excellently expressed. The music by Christian Jacob is also wonderful as all the fear of passengers on the verge of death can be felt through the theme.
The film will hit the Box Office on September 9.
The current rate is 76 points on Metacritic with all positives comments. Sully is certainly a film that worth watching, especially for 155 passengers who were saved by this brave man.
