Review:

I have really come to appreciate movies based on true stories for the fact they are generally believable even with Hollywood’s artistic license. Also I need to start this review with recognition for Tom Hanks ability to somehow make you forget he is there and only see the characters he play. Add to that the actors playing the Somalis were amazing drawing sympathy from the viewer while displaying crazy eyes like you’ll seldom see.  A very intense film it draw emotion from many levels.  For the Somail people under a cartel rule and forced to comply with very little other options existing in their world. For the Americans who take on dangerous waters to get supplies to those in need and for our military forces who make the hard choices and ut their lives on the line each day to keep all of these element in check. This film has a good pace and is very engaging.  The chemistry between Hanks and the crew is very believable.

On a scale of 1 -10 I’d give Captain Phillips a 10.  I can’t imagine this story could be told any better.
