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

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 rela ...

"14.4 Tom Hanks vetää tän roolin todella hyvin. Elokuva on muutenkin hieno. Etenee hyvin, mielenkiinto säilyy. Ei ole tehosteilla eikä liiallisella toiminnalla pilattu. Hyvä kontrasti. Tosi jees. Ja kertoo taas yhden rajun tositarinan. Hienoa."

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

Best Films of 2013 (IMO)... (114 movies items)

"SUPERB job! It's hard for me to ever say anything bad about Paul Greengrass, although I will say this seems like his most "Hollywood" film he's ever made, sorta. But it's effective. Everything feels very real world and Tom Hanks always plays a decent "average joe" kinda character - it's makes real easily to build an emotional investment in Captain Phillips and what happens to him in a tense and delicate situation. The parts with the Navy felt like the camera was a fly on the wall, that we get to"

Captain Phillips review

“[img id=6293641 width=500full]

"There's got to be something other than being a fisherman or kidnapping people."

"Maybe in America, Irish, maybe in America."

I have heard a lot of stuff about this movie not being as true to the real life events as it claims to be, and i can understand how that might bug some people, but if the movies i good i don't really care that much. It's not a documentary. What this is is one of the most intense movies i have seen in a very long time. From the second the pirates appear on screen i got hooked and the hours after that just flew by. I already knew the outcome of this story considering it was based on true events that i still remember seeing on the news, but i was literally sweating in some of the more suspenseful scenes.
