Captain Phillips Reviews

  • May 13, 2020

    The first 30 minutes of the movie are completely unnecessary and worthless. If you know even the basics of what actually occurred, the first hour of the movie is unnecessary and is really drawn out and turns into just a lot of ridiculous shouting and blustering. Then more shouting in a confined life boat. Tom Hanks' performance, as differentiated from the actual Captain Phillips, is really nothing special, and the run time of 2h 14m is way too long.

    Fantastic work by both Tom Hanks as the captain of the Maersk Alabama cargo ship off the coast of Somalia, and Barkhad Abdi as Muse, the Somali pirate captain who's crew hijacks the ship and crew in return for a bounty of millions of dollars. Very suspenseful and compelling, this is one of director Paul Greengrass's finest works.

    Based on a true story, great acting from Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi, decent cinematography, decent writing, and a reasonable soundtrack. My main complaints would be that things did slow right down at points, there was shaky cam, and it would have been nice to have some background for what was going on in Somalia.

    This suspenseful drama was really good. Tom Hanks and the rest of the cast did an excellent job in this movie. The plot to the movie was great and pretty intense. It'll keep you interested the entire time and you'll be in shock at how it ends. If you haven't seen this movie yet, check it out sometime. You'll enjoy it.

    One of my least favourite films of all time. Went to see the advertised „complex approach to modern somalian piracy". Got a onesided american war propaganda.

    You feel tense the entire movie, and you're not exactly sure how the story is going to turn out. Great acting between the two leads

    I only reviewed this to offset a negative review by a critic who said the movie was boring because it was "male heavy" sorry the main character on this biopic was actually a male. In reality, this movie is excellent. Well worth seeing.
