I’ve delivered a million passengers over forty years, but in the end I’m going to be judged by two hundred and eight seconds.
Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) in the film Sully. Directed by Clint Eastwood, it tells of the ‘Miracle of the Hudson’, where a commercial airline landed on the Hudson river without fatalities after a flock of birds disabled both engines.
I’d love to see this film!
Have you read any of the film reviews? Or just the premise and people involved have grabbed you?
I followed the story when the real events occurred and it was so fascinating 🙂
I know. It happened in 2009 but I still remember it really well.
great film and great quote! nicely done as always Alex!
It was the line from the trailer and it always stood out. I also liked the one about everything being unprecedented until it happens for the first time.
i’m looking forward to seeing this –
I’ll be curious what you think. Let me know when you do.
I didn’t know this had been filmed. Looks good
Anything with Tom Hanks and Clint Eastwood I was in. I didn’t like it as much as I thought I would but was still an excellent story and Hanks really was superb as ever.
I had really wanted to see this. I’m sorry you didn’t like it as much as you’d hoped. Still worth seeing, though? That is a great line…
I’d say so. It just lacked that something for me. Would have liked a little extra detail on the rescue crew and a more linear structure. But I’m still glad I saw it.
That’s a great line indeed and I remember it vividly when Hanks said it in the film.
Even if I hadn’t been looking for it from the trailer it would have stood out. So very true. Hanks in an interview said it took him 18 months to be cleared.
