Great film! Do not go into it expecting 'action'. The guy could have been driving a bus, but It highlights the pitfalls of substance abuse (alcohol or whatever), and its consequences, end of.
Great performance, once again, from Mr W!
What the hell has the 'Hudson River' got to do with this movie lol? Sullenberger was a true hero, the guy in the movie ain't, if you watched and understood it correctly.

Don't forget luck There was both a lot of skill and luck involved.
His experience, wisdom and quick thinking saved his plane, passengers and crew. Not 1 person was killed and that my friend is amazing.

The Hudson River incident doesn't have anything to do with the movie directly, but what we are saying is, the movie seems to have been inspired by the events that took place that day on January 15, 2009. Denzel Washington's character as a pilot is that of a man who's skill and wisdom saved most of his crew and passengers from certain death. Captain Sullenberger was that man in real life (minus the drugs and alcohol of course). His experience, wisdom and quick thinking saved his plane, passengers and crew. Not 1 person was killed and that my friend is amazing.
