In the middle of Sully there’s a 25 minute sequence that reenacts the boarding, take off, geese mishap, and river crash landing of US Airways Flight 1549. Somehow it’s deeply compelling and intense even though you already know that everything turns out ok in the Miracle on the Hudson.  As for the rest of the movie, to paraphrase from my blurb on Bridge of Spies, it’s all “Tom Hanks doing Tom Hanks things with his Tom Hanks friends.” Tier 6
