Sully (2016) review

Posted : 1 year, 11 months ago on 25 December 2016 04:48

Eastwood muy ajustado a su héroe: cometió la hazaña pero la tecnología, el pensamiento corportativo y los abogados malos malos, se la cuestionan. Hasta que él con dipalogos mosca, desbatara todo. Mmmmm

An average movie

Apparently, Clint Eastwood has found a new gimmick as this movie was already his  4th biopic in a row. On top of that, since he had a big box-office success with ‘American Sniper’, he decided to once again tell the story of another American hero. Well, even though ‘American Sniper’ was quite popular, to be honest, I actually didn’t care much for this movie and I thought that this story was actually much more interesting. Still, I didn’t really like the approach they chose to tell this true story. Basically, the tricky thing was that the crash and the rescue altogether didn’t even take an hour so they had to add some stuff to reach a decent running time (eventually, it was still only 96 mins and the shortest film directed by Eastwood). Eventually, they tried to focus on the fact that Sully was, at first, blamed by the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) of reckless flying but, even though it might have been true, it didn’t result in something really interesting. Indeed, what the guy did was just simply amazing, he saved everyone for crying out loud  and it felt like a waste of time to spend so much time on the NTSB arguing otherwise. To conclude, even though it didn’t completely work, I thought it was still a decent watch and I think it is worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
