Captain Phillips

The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama's commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips, and the Somali pirate captain, Muse, who takes him hostage.

October 8, 2013 - Boston.com - Ty Burr, Globe Staff

An extraordinarily gripping movie based on events that took place on the container ship Maersk Alabama in April, 2009. Director Paul Greengrass creates an aura of urgency so powerful that we temporarily forget what we know and hold our breaths for two-plus hours of tightening suspense. Tom Hanks and the magnetic Barkhad Abdi star. In English and Somali, with subtitles.

Nov 04, 2013 - freys on Captain Phillips
good movie, but main part of book left out

Overall, the movie was a thumbs up. The one part I wish they had incorported was the turmoil that his wife was enduring back in VT. The emotions of that situation would have blended in well with what Phillips was undergoing in the lifeboat.
