Review: Captain Phillips


The true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years.


An amazing true story and played by even more amazing actor, Tom Hanks plays Captain Phillips perfectly and the ones they should also give credit to are the Somali & Sudanese actors who pulled off the roles of the pirates perfectly. The story develops slowly, no real action happening until the pursuit begins, two stories emerge as one and Captain Phillips has to make decisions. You here about pirates these days off the Somali coast but people still think of Pirates of the Caribbean when thinking about pirates. It is an intense story and very well made, if you haven’t seen it you should.
