Captain Chesley Sullenberger’s (Tom Hanks) unprecedented decision to put his crippled airliner down on the Hudson River, saving the lives of 155 people, gave the world a hero. Clint Eastwood’s worthy crowd-pleaser about the incident is an ode to professionalism and a rumination on heroism in today’s world. My only gripe is that, while the flight’s six minutes are as gripping as any ever filmed, it’s simply not enough to hang a movie on, and in an attempt to create tension Eastwood plays up what amounts to a footnote: the evil NTSB’s initial assertion that the plane could’ve indeed reached an airport.
