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' unarmed ship; in the ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the Somali coast, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control.

The film is directed by Academy Award® nominee Paul Greengrass, from a screenplay by Billy Ray based upon the book, A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty. The film is produced by Scott Rudin, Dana Brunetti, and Michael De Luca.

 Tense ultra-realistic movie

| | See all Gamebargains99's reviews (59)

This true-life story about a ship being pirated by Somali bandits unfolds in documentary-type realism. It leads to a brutal and tense finale. Tom Hanks gives yet another top-notch Oscar-worthy performance as Captain Phillips, trying to control the nightmarish scenario. You certainly cheer when the US Navy get involved, and take down the Somali guys. But the script is clever enough to actually make you side with the pirates at several intervals, and you feel sorry for them in the end. A good movie, which the director -Paul Greengrass - handles with his usual skill. Just like Flight 93 and Green Zone, he is THE director for big-budget realistic true-life hijack movies and army stand-offs. Most of the tension is not knowing how it will quite end...so this is really watch-once kind of film. It will never be as good as the first time you see it...
