"Listen up, we have been boarded by armed pirates. If they find you, remember, you know this ship, they don't. Stick together and we'll be alright. Good luck."

Director Paul Greengrass' first motion picture in a number of years, 2013's Captain Phillips finds the seasoned filmmaker back in familiar territory, utilising his intense documentary-style approach to tell the true story of ... read more

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. 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 relationship between the Alabama's commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (two time Academy Award®-winner Tom Hanks), and the Somali pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes him hostage. Phillips and Muse are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips' una ... (more)

Top 10 best movies 2013 (20 movies items)

" Notes: I just enjoyed the fact that it was a really believable and very well made thriller. Indeed, except for Tom Hanks and Catherine Keener, all the actors were pretty much unknown and the way they behaved and talked made me believe that they were actually really the real thing. There was only one area which sometimes was off though. Indeed, half of the time the Somali pirates were talking, the English they used was just way too complex for some guys who probably had very little contact with"

There was one slight difference though. Indeed, with this movie, we were not dealing with some real historical event though, even if the background was definitely realistic and compelling, but with a supposedly true story told from one specific angle and some people already argued that Richard Phillips might not have been such a great guy after all. Anyway, in this case, I didn't really care if the story was true or not, I just enjoyed the fact that it was a really believable and very well made thriller. Indeed, except for Tom Han” read more

From Best to Worst: Tom Hanks (53 movies items)

"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."
