As a story by itself enjoyed it.
But since I read up on the real story, I found that Captain Phillip's wasn't a hero to many of the other crew members....so don't know what to believe.

Tom Hanks at the top of his game. He starts the movie totally in control of his life, his marriage, his kids, his giant cargo ship & the pirates reduce him to a blithering idiot. Superb!

An excellent thriller based on true events! Pulse pounding action! Great acting from Tom Hanks and Barkdi Abdi!

Should have won Best Picture in 2014!

Tense, great acting, and a shockingly strong supporting cast.
Great movie.

Better than average movie filled with action and suspense.

The actors were magnificent in this movie. It was a little too much action for my taste--I would've liked to had more backstory, more drama about who these characters were and less adventure. I thought the cast of the Alabama were portrayed a little too favorably, especially the titular character, but I guess this is to be expected.

This is a very good production both in directing and acting. Recommend to watch.

Of all the Tom Hank films I would have to say this is on my top three.The movie is EXTREMELY intense. When I watched it in theaters my heart was beating very very fast. It is a nail biter. The acting from EVERYONE was top notch. If your a drama/thriller fan, make sure to watch Phillips next.
