The pace is slow. Sometimes excruciatingly so. The fateful crash is actually shown twice in full, and you will wonder as you watch it a second time, "haven't I seen this before?". One particular sequence will have you questioning whether you are sitting in a cinema or sitting on the tarmac, having the safety rules explained to you in what feels like real time. Perhaps these are all issues with the event itself - as Sully himself says, it was only 208 seconds, and such a quick crisis struggles to justify its 96 minute run time. 



Eastwood struggles to make the plane crash engrossing for the entire runtime, but Sully is worth a look on the strength of Hanks' performance alone.
