A very good movie

Even though Paul Greengrass eventually became famous thanks to the Bourne franchise, I actually always preferred his very realistic thrillers based on some historical events ('United 93' and 'Bloody Sunday') and he was coming up this time with something similar. There was one slight difference though. Indeed, with this movie, we were not dealing with some real historical event though, even if the ... read more

Grips you tight right from the opening frame.

Tom Hanks has the potential to be a game changer in any film he is in. During Captain Phillips, he not only elevates his own game but he helps become part of a larger picture one that is focused on everyone involved.

Description: Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates.

"31/10 For a movie about a bunch of Somali-pirates hitting a boat captained by a good old, stand up American guy Tom Hanks they managed to keep this from going into that United 93-type category well enough, excluding few moments near the end when Tom Hanks started yelling like an idiot - apart from those moments Hanks was okay - and when he started writing a letter in panic, and for the most part this was really just a very simple and straightforward real life-based hostage thriller without that"
