Sully, A Movie About Courage and Heroic Validation

Tom Hanks does it again in his great performance as Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger in the movie “Sully”. Sullenberger on a flight out of LaGuardia Airport in NYC had to perform an emergency landing in the Hudson River after both the engines were damaged in flight by Canada geese flying into them. His experience led to all 155 of his passengers surviving.

In this movie there is a story of heroism and validation when Sully’s landing the plane into the river is called into question. Aaron Eckhart plays Jeff Skiles who is the first officer of the plane piloted by Sullenberger. Eckhart is a great actor in his own right and he puts forth a great performance and is a perfect companion to Hanks.

Tom Hanks continues to establish himself as one of the great talents of our day. This movie as a true-to-life presentation of the events of January 15, 2009 when that airliner made its water landing. It’s a movie that is meant to be seen on the big screen.
