Heroes , it is a word overused time and time gain.The sports hero, the movie hero, how about the real heroes .The pilots and the police officers and the physicians and scientists that work tirelessly to protect us and keep us safe .The truth is that real heroes are just humans put in extraordinary situations and are able to overcome adversity with skill, determination, intelligence and dignity. This is the story of one such hero Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger.
This is the story of the man behind the action and the media and public scrutiny that followed the ” Miracle on The Hudson ” .While the outside world saw the hero , the powers that be saw a scapegoat and looked to ruin and destroy this man . A modern David and Goliath you might say. The movie is done in stark realism with Tom Hanks ( on of the best actors of the last 40 years ) in the main role with an outstanding supporting cast and director .The talents of Aaron Eckhart, Laura Linney and Clint Eastwood made what could have been just an exploitative film into a true story of humanity and triumph . We highly recommend this film and give it 5 stars .The movie is currently in theaters nationwide
