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. Based on a true story, the film focuses on the Alabama’s commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips (two-time Academy Award®-winner Tom Hanks, Best Actor, 1993, Philadelphia; Best Actor, 1994, Forrest Gump), and the Somali pirate captain, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), who takes him hostage. The two men are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips’ unarmed ship; in the ensuing standoff, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control.

There may be debatable points on what went wrong and where things should have been approached differently. But, frankly, this film shows the reality of how events take on their own reality that no armchair quarterbacking could affect. The heroism of the captain and crew and the professionalism of the military responders is well told. Finally, Hank's portrayal of the Captain's emotional turmoil following his recovery from the clutches of the pirate crew is suburb!
Quotable quote uttered by Chris Mulkey as crewman John Cronan as Captain Phillips describes the situation concerning pirates, "I'm union..." Implying it wasn't his job... kind of sums up the state of the nation.
This movie, based on actual events from 2009, was an excellent, thrilling, taut, edge-of-my-seat movie. The acting was superb. The special effects were stunning. I was definitely glad I got this in Blu-Ray.
Both my husband and I thought this was a great movie.
