Captain Phillips

January 17, 2014  |  30 days, Rants and Raves

I simply loved the movie. Aside from the strange start of the movie, I let it go on for a bit and then it was a non stop thriller ride. I just loved Tom Hanks performance and his acting towards the end of the movie was just so intense and takes you to a whole new level. Although the end was too emotional for me (sob sob). I must say I have enjoyed a movie after a long time this year as in 2013-2014. More so, it is based on a true life 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. The drama, the action, the violence all in all, excellent movie, very well acted by all the actors and well scripted by the director. Defintely keeps you on the edge till the end!
