The Navy SEALS procedural is a bit of a jumble even as it comfortingly demonstrates American competence in the face of a standoff. Still, it's the captain's passion that gives the movie its emotional intensity. Full Review
[A] knockout movie, one of the year's best....And Hanks, showing how trauma eats at the soul, hits a new career peak.
Rating: A- -- What makes Captain Phillips so gripping, apart from its visceral sense of danger, is that it daringly gives us both points of view. Full Review
My heart was in my mouth throughout. It is nail-bitingly exciting, even if you know the outcome, and I think I can safely say it's a better film than the one I thought I was going to see. Full Review
CAPTAIN PHILLIPS is riveting....[Greengrass] excels at pressure-cooker scenarios.
Rating: 7/10 -- Director Paul Greengrass creates a compelling film that is engaging without being preachy or didactic. Tom Hanks is, as always, stellar; and first-time actor Barkhad Abdi is moving as the villain/victim of the story. Full Review
Rating: C -- Sadly, thanks to the Dutch film A Hijacking, which "coincidentally" hit DVD this week, Captain Phillips isn't even the best "hijacked by Somali pirates" movie in the last 6 months. Full Review
The Reader (Omaha, NE)
Two-time Academy Award winner Tom Hanks teams with Oscar-nominated director Paul Greengrass and screenwriter Billy Ray to tell the true story of Richard Phillips, a U.S. cargo-ship captain who surrendered himself to Somali pirates so that his crew would be freed. Captain Richard Phillips (Hanks) and his crew are carrying freight around the Horn of Africa when four Somali pirates forcefully take over their ship, the MV Maersk Alabama. While Phillips' team follow his orders to hide until they hear him give the safe word, the captain and a few essential crew members remain on the bridge as the heavily armed pirates make their way up to seize control of the ship. But the interlopers soon discover something that sends them into a furious rage: After effectively shutting down the ship, Phillips explains that the Maersk had malfunctioned when the crew pushed it too hard in an attempt to evade the attackers. In order to appease their leader, the ruthless Muse (Barkhad Abdi), Phillips offers them the $30,000 that's been locked in the ship safe. But that isn't enough, and Muse demands that Phillips help him search every corner of the ship to root out the terrified crew. When that plan fails, the pirates agree to take the cash from the safe and flee in the Maersk's lifeboat. At the last minute, however, they kidnap Phillips in the hope of supplementing their take with a sizable ransom -- a decision that leads to a tense standoff with the U.S. Navy, who would sooner see the lifeboat sunk with Phillips inside than allow it to reach Somalia.
