Odd film, really. I've no doubt that Sullenberger was a skilful pilot whose actions saved all his passengers, but the attempt to blame him for pilot error was essentially invented for the movie. That's an example of the main problem. Apart from the shit script, directing and editing, it's packed with obviously invented material to boost the drama which manages to make it feel like something awful from the Discovery Channel. Somebody, probably Clint Eastwood, said 'That would make a great Movie' and too many people listened.

Doesn't compare at all well with the fictional Flight (which was weak and problematic on many levels). If only Sully had been a drunk...

(TBF, on the charisma scale, Hanks is .001 and Washington is 11)

Yeah, Hanks is an odd actor. I've liked him in a few things' but felt Meh! at more. Obviously he was terrible in Forrest Gump.

He was fantastic in The Ladykillers. That might be the only good role I've seen him in.

Haven't seen that, although I have seen the 1955 version with Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers.

I thought he was pretty good in Cloud Atlas. Oh, and Toy Story (various).
