MOVIE REPORT CARD: SULLY
Sully, isn't going to get any complaints here, when it comes to the acting. Hanks, turns in a performance we are used to seeing from him. Eckhart, does a great job here as well, and the rest of the supporting cast, fit in nicely. Where Sully stumbles, is in the screenplay, and pacing. The odd choice of constructing the story's signature set-piece in flashback, doesn't quite work as well as it should. Doing it the way they did for dramatic effect, is too forced, and doesn't quite hold the emotional resonance I believe they were going for. Sometimes the film's message, steps a little too hard on the foot as well. However, the performances, and the sequences of the landing, work very well. It's enough to keep you captivated. Sully, is a fine movie, albeit one that should have been much, much better.
