Can't believe that I am the first one to comment on this movie. My wife and I saw it this past weekend and in a word we found it gripping.

From the minute they hit the birds I felt as if I was actually in the cockpit,flying the airplane and making the decisions.

If the story had been based on fiction it still would have been emotionally involving, the fact that it was actually happening made it doubly so. Tom Hanks couldn't have been better.

Go see it.

I totally agree. Eastwood knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat and I think the casting was great.

I loved the movie and as an update Sully made sure they used false names for the NTSB members in the movie because they were helpful not combative in real life. Roger Moore

It would appear that Clint Eastwood has done for the movie industry what Captain Sully has done for the airline industry. Captain Sully and his crew made us all look good!

The flying was great and extremely accurate, but the accident investigation process was totally bogus.

Still a good movie.
