This is what a solid Hollywood production looks like. Very good acting, very good characters, very good execution. Captain Phillips is over 2 hours long, but there's not an ounce of fat on it. The film is intense, never boring, and it constantly keeps you guessing. And yet, while there's not much to complain about, it's not until the last 10 minutes that we are ever treated to something truly ... read more

It is - through director Paul Greengrass's distinctive lens - simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller, and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the rela ...

"Smart, powerfully acted, and incredibly intense, Captain Phillips offers filmgoers a Hollywood biopic done right -- and offers Tom Hanks a showcase for yet another brilliant performance."

“Alright here is another film i have owned for awhile but just now getting around to watching it. I heard a lot of good things about this film seeing that it is a Tom Hanks film you know its going to be enjoyable although i have really never been a fan of Paul Greengrass's bigger movies like The Bourne Trilogy. From what i was hearing from people is that Tom Hanks did an amazing performance in it. I just didn't see that and was a bit disappointed by it if anything i was more impressed by Barkhad Abdi the leader of the pirates ill be keeping an eye on him. The first half of the film was really good the tension they build towards with the Somalion pirates hijacking the ship was great. Sadly though the film takes a dive in the second half when the military gets involved once that happen my ” read more

Captain Phillips

“Courage under fire makes for great storytelling, if it’s done properly. Captain Phillips, more often than not, does this type of story incredibly well. Inspired by true events, it gives us an everyman straining to keep a level head and turn the quickly escalating situations towards his favor. An ominous blip on the radar is just the beginning of a series of twists and turns that feel too good to be real, which inevitability means that they are.

What’s most interesting about Captain Phillips is how it begins with contrasting, yet not entirely dissimilar, montages of the two main characters waking up and preparing to go out on the ocean. One of them is a middle-aged white man from the First World’s middle-class, the other skeletal Somali pirate from the Third World who seems ” read more
