This movie in the genre of Biography happened in January 2009. The director has brought a 90 minutes story from a 208 second event. It is really fascinating that how he plots the story the decisions and action being brilliantly narrated in that 208 Seconds.
An alarming message that the airhostess relayed to the passengers aboard US Airway flight 1549 moments after it took from Newyork’s LaGuardia Airport. There was a multiple bird strike on both the engines which was destroyed at 2800 feet causing a forced water landing. It is an unpredicted that the pilots are generally untrained. Tom Hanks is Captain Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger, who manages the seemingly impossible. Sully recounts the real life event that took place on January 15, 2009. The film also explores the aftermath of the event.
In the beginning of the movie, Sully tells his First Officer Jeff Skiles (Eckhart) that although he’s flown a million-odd passengers over a whopping 42 years, he now finds himself being judged for the decision and actions he took. Clint Eastwood manages to construct a grip in telling this real life event without losing its pace even for a second. The passengers are the most fortunate angels and the story was dabbed with the thick stroke of sentimentalism. Linney only gets to phone in from home as Sully’s worried wife.
Skiles and Sully form a great team the two men who, as Sully says “do their job”. Both however, have episodes of post-traumatic stress disorder given the harrowing experience they went through with 155 lives on their hands thankfully safe.
