Captain Philips Trailer

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. If the trailer is this good then the movie looks to be even better, especially with Tom Hanks in the lead.

Review: Angels & Demons

Another one of Dan Browns’ amazing stories has been turned into a movie, the first one was a great movie but could have been better. This time around I think Ron Haword did an amazing job with the storyline and keeping it as close as possible to the book as possible when it comes to all the clues and people, the storyline doesn’t feel split up at all, its just one continuous adventure with one big surprise after another. This time around I didn’t feel that Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) was the only main character you also had Vittoria Vetra the scientist who is also piecing things together, and another character who has to deal with what is going on in the Vatican, Camerlengo Patrick McKenna (Ewan McGregor). The movie has its unexpected twist and turns, keeps you on your toes, and you get a glimpse of the history and life of Vatican City. Its not just about the clues, its action paced as well with so much going on in all parts of the city, I didn’t even know the Swiss Guard had so much jurisdiction in Italy. I really recommend this movie, but I’m assuming if watched in Kuwait it will be really chopped up because it has so many religious references.
