Did this video help you?

Chazbot: As long as we're on Hanks doing real-life, it's no 'Captain Philips', that's for damn sure.

Mel Clifford: I know I'm commenting on an old video, but I have to agree with the point that making the accident investigators into black hats was a big mistake. Just about the only thing that jarred with me. On the other hand, the advice to always fly the plane is one every pilot hears all the time - it may be cliche, but its oh so true.

blunty1: I didn't like this film. The actual flight scene was well executed, but the rest was like "trying to fill the space left".

dilwich123: If you can not do anything in life - Become a critic.

Virgil Grissom: Mr. Eastwood is a great director.

Super Billie Piper’s Teeth: This film did not need to be made.

pricklyphlox: No fake babies? :(

MrMakeDo: Totally agree that the crash investigators were cast as over-the-top panto villains when that's obviously not what real life is like. It was just a little hammy in parts but Hanks was brilliantly subtle. It often felt like they were dragging a very short story out into a feature length film. Good but not great.

sam soul: Fantastic direction from Clint E and the way he constructed the scenes I think I only noticed the green screen once, I found Tom Hanks' wife a little annoying in those few moments she had over the phone even though I like Laura L, I felt the same as Mark when the investigation started but the end of it made sense and explained perfectly why they were so aggressive with them, so on that I disagree with Mark, when you watch it you'll understand without any spoilers.

Tony Horner: I never have liked Canada geese.

B1001 D: Want to see a much better movie than this thats also out at the moment. Go see Arrival. Now that is good.

Fine Wine Daily: My main problem is how wildly inaccurate the movie is. Everything involving the investigation is pure BS. Not once during the investigation did they think Sully was at fault in any way. Early on in the investigation they found that landing the plane in the Hudson was the only option. The computer simulators found that they could only make it back to an airport half the time if they turned back immediately, and could never make it back if they waited a realistic amount of time.

The sequences where they only use a human pilot and only wait a realistic amount of time at Sully's request is pure BS. They're not that incompetent.

Foghorn Films: "I would have done it in July!" Everyone laughs! Felt like an ending of Murder She Wrote!

circleofrage: 'flight' starring Denzel anyone...? i really liked that.

iL0veHayleyWilliams: I watched Flight for the first time the other day. Sounds very similar.

C S5: so many things about this trend for making movies out of recent(ish) news stories hack me off that I don't even know where to start. cringeworthy.

Pithy Plinth: I'd probably watch it... if I didn't ever have to fly again.

Edward Chester: The talk of the overdramatisation and twisting of the truth is intriguing given the current post-truth political climate. It was a major complaint I had about American Sniper and I think it is a genuine problem that shouldn't be dismissed simply because it's done for the sake of making a better story.

Gavin48: It's a movie that didn't need to be made. The use of INAX cameras and Tom Hanks are the only standouts

jd899: Sully was the surprise film at the London Film Festival and I agree with the comments here it was a solid piece of film making. Not unremarkable as the good doctor would say but overall an entertaining 90 minutes. The last line of the film was particularly funny.
