Captain Phillips

Captain Phillips (2013)

Genre: Biography, Drama, Thriller

The true events that happened to Captain Phillips back in 2009 shown through this Hollywood movie. After you watch this film you have to give some sense of awe for the horrors Captain Phillips had to go through. The narrative runs fairly well in the fact it can keep you captivated throughout πŸ™‚ . The film was not too predictable and at times, I was on the edge of my seat πŸ˜› . Tom Hanks is spectacular in this movie and his portrayal as Captain Phillips was stunning πŸ˜€ . He was believable and reasonable throughout even during the most β€œtense” moments. Plus his last five minutes (can’t say when as I don’t want to spoil πŸ˜› ) was so full of emotion, you felt for the character. The four Somali-American actors portraying the pirates were also very realistic in their performance and were quite scary. I enjoyed when the ship was first being taken over as the tension and drama around that section was thrilling and gripping πŸ™‚ . I have to admit the tension did hit a point where I wasn’t as enthralled as I should have been. It dulled while he was at sea without his crew but did pick up again near the end. Overall, a decent and enjoyable biography film to watch πŸ™‚ . I recommend as it is worth a watch once. Enjoy πŸ˜€

I give this film 3.5 Stars out of 5!
