Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Our audience really enjoyed this film which focuses on the investigation following the crash landing on the Hudson River. Tom Hanks is excellent in the role of Captain Sully trying to prove that his actions were justified. Our only negative comment would be that the combination of poor sound quality and American accents made some of the speech very difficult to hear.

An interesting angle to a well-known news story. At times the diction was difficult to understand given the fast speaking American accents, so we turned on the sub-titles for the second half. The acting wasn’t brilliant from some of the side characters but given that our audience enjoyed the film so much we have scored the film 8/10.

Generally enjoyed by our audience. Tom Hanks excellent as ever. The film kept our attention throughout. Maybe the American dialogue difficult to hear in places, but this didn't detract from it.
