Brief Synopsis:
SULLY: MIRACLE ON THE HUDSON (2016) as directed by Clint Eastwood is an amazing film. The original movie focuses on the crash investigation and the political blame game, while exploring Sully's background and the actual Miracle Landing through multiple flashbacks from different points of view. The intent of the 155 Fan Edit is to remove all of the investigation storyline and just show the Miracle Landing in a single, linear narrative.
Intention:
This is my first official fan edit release in many years. I have been pretty much retired from the Fan Edit Game, but much like Michael Corleone, just when I thought I was out forever, the creative spark pulled me back in LOL. In many respects, I am starting all over from scratch, as my previous editing computer and software had gone the way of the Dodo many moons ago. So I wanted my first new edit to be something I held a passion for and would present just the right amount of introductory technical challenge to learn an all new NLE, and SULLY fit the bill perfectly.
Special Thanks:
I must give a heartfelt shout out of THANKS to addiesin , for with out his original Humble Bundle gifting to me, none of this would be possible.

And Thank You to lastsurvivor for making the poster.

I liked this a lot. I liked the original, but found that I preferred the story of the actual event over the court room stuff. Then I saw this edit, it was a perfect, great idea to do. The only issue I had with it, is that it wasn't the greatest quality, 720 I think, would have loved a 1080 version. Other than that, great.

Straight to the point, and IMO a much better "hero" short story. I travel a lot, so the angle of simply focusing on the actual event made me emotional at the the quick pace - felt just like being late for a plane and then... WTF.

I understand why the original edit focused on the bureaucratic aftermath, but I think we all agree it was BS, the guy did a great thing and this edit really focus on the right things.

I wish this edit was in HD, that's the only fault I can give it, besides it scaring the "traveler" in me for its realism LOL
Great edit, highly recommended.

A very warm welcome back to one of my favourite faneditors. It's been far too long, and let's hope that with the completion of 155 it will whet the appetite for Bionic Bob to go on to do more projects in the near future.

Now, Sully is a film that it's taken me an age to see. In preparation for this edit I finally got around to watching the theatrical version and I have to say that on the whole I loved it. Indeed, I did wonder why the hell anyone would want to change anything and make a fanedit out of it. However, Bob's approach to his version makes perfect sense and is more than worthwhile.

In the theatrical version the events which unfold are not told in a strictly linear fashion. It's very skillfully done, in that we see different viewpoints of the Miracle on the Hudson at varying points during the film, in amongst all the hearing stuff which sees the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) somewhat controversially try to imply that Captain Sully was at fault and could have landed the plane safely at a nearby airport. In 155, the edit solely concentrates on a linear retelling of just the flight itself and indeed, it succeeds beautifully.

Some people may say that this edit is an easy one. However, look deeper and you'll see a real understanding of narrative here in the way all the different scenes have been collated together and rearranged, to the point that you genuinely would not have known that the film played out any differently. Of course, it means this edit is a very short one... there's no scenes of Sully suffering horrific visions of the plane crashing into buildings, or the much debated depiction of the aforementioned NTSB. But this is not the point of the edit. It's quick, sharp, and to the point and represents a truly breathtaking and nail biting way to witness the Miracle on The Hudson and how Captain Sully saved 155 people.

Technically, everything works here. Visually, when watching on a computer it looks great. It doesn't quite hold up so well on a big screen, but it's still more than passable in this regard. Audio editing is spot on, helped no doubt by the fact that Eastwood's films aren't exactly brimming with music, but it's perfectly executed here.

All in all, a terrific comeback for the one of the best editors around. It makes for a very satisfying way to experience what must have been a terrifying ordeal for all 155 passengers and crew. Needless to say - highly recommended.
