MPAA Rated PG-13 for some peril and brief strong language

Sex & Nudity

  • One man is wrapped in a towel. The scene is not sensual in nature.
  • An airline worker flirts with a passenger and allots him seat "6C".

Violence & Gore

  • Some nightmare sequences of planes crashing and exploding (quite intense).
  • There are some mild scenes of peril as seen after a plane crashes into the river, with shots of the passengers evacuating the plane and waiting to be rescued while standing on the half-sunken aircraft.
  • There are no details of injury or bloodletting visible in the scene, except for one character, mild bleeding is shown.


  • 1 use of "Jesus Chr*st", 1 use of "f*king", 1 use of "bastard", 1 use of "son of a bitch", 1 use of "asses", multiple uses of "shit", "damn", "hell" and "bullshit".

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Two brief scenes where alcohol consumption is shown.
  • A vodka brand name, "grey goose", is mentioned

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Early on in the movie, there are two sequences (one a nightmare and one a character imagining) of a plane flying through downtown New York City and crashing into a building. While this doesn't actually take place, as it's a big "what if" scenario, the scene is still unsettling - especially when considering how reminiscent it is of what happened to the Trade Towers on 9/11. Might be especially triggering for people who remember that day or lived through the events in some form.
  • The flashback scene where the plane is actually flying low near some of the buildings in New York City, as professionals gaze out of their office windows in shock, is also unsettling because of its reminiscence of 9/11.
  • Based on true events, "Sully" is a drama about an airline pilot, Captain Chesley Sullenberger, who safely landed U.S. Airways flight 1549 on the frozen Hudson River in 2009. The film follows the investigations that took place in the wake of the incident.
