On Thursday, January 15, 2009, the world witnessed the "Miracle on the Hudson" when pilot Chesley"Sully" Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) glided his disabled plane onto the frigid waters of the Hudson River, saving the lives of all one hundred fifty-five aboard. However, even as Sully was being heralded by the public and the media for his unprecedented feat of aviation skill, an investigation was unfolding that threatened to destroy his reputation and his career.Written by
In Sully's flashback to flying a biplane as a teenager, a Civil Air Patrol sign (red prop on a blue background) is clearly visible on an airport building. The Civil Air Patrol was responsible for courier duty and Coastal Patrol missions, amongst other tasks, during World War II. Today, they are responsible for all inland Search and Rescue operations in the United States, and they operate one of the largest fleets of aircraft in the world. See more »

The film's IMAX release presented the film open-matte, at an aspect ratio of 1.90:1, meaning there was more picture information visible in the top and bottom of the frame than in normal theaters and on home video. See more »
A very low-key and introverted film. The structure of the film is very clever, the most moving flight process is scattered in the middle of the film, constantly re-enacted fragments to enhance the heat. But from another point of view, the story of the film is very simple, it can be said that the plot has no depth, especially reflected in the final hearing, a sentence to achieve a big turnaround. After watching it, there was even a feeling that it was a documentary rather than a commercial movie.
