HKFanatic's rating of the film Sully

"Can we get serious now?" Clint Eastwood's ode to professional pragmatism. The unconventional structure works wonderfully here (another way to subvert biopic cliches), and I'm not sure if I've ever enjoyed Tom Hanks more onscreen. What came as a surprise - but in hindsight shouldn't have - is that, in so many ways, "Sully" is really a film about 9/11. Here that collective horror is transfigured into collective hope.
