Unpadded, unpretentious and unpandering, SULLY is a brisk and oddly- structured procedural focused on heroism, human instinct and harnessing the power to do your job under any circumstance.  Eastwood’s ping-pong structure may occasionally feel like he’s pulling numbered balls from a steel cage on game night at the old folk’s home but his brevity and occasional deft touches are admirable.  The whole is presented in a workman-like, matter-of-fact, bullet point fashion that’s fit to inform.  Its Hanks though who subtly sticks the landing as the titular character battling insecurities, second guesses and a devil of a 24-hour news cycle… More compelling than it is entertaining, this intimate glimpse of a man trapped by the hand of human instinct is still well worth the fare.
