First about the movie itself:
The true 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.
It's pretty short, but I don't want to tell you more. The movie is a little bit longer than 2 hours but you can't feel it because you are completely in the story. The tension is huge and I was sooo nervous the whole movie, you can't believe it. The end of the story is hard to guess and that's what makes the movie so fantastic.
The actors next to Tom Hanks had a hard job - imaging playing next to such a great actor must be intimidating. But they made a great job. You will have twisted feelings against the Somali pirates because in my opinion they are not just bloody pirates - they are people who have nothing to loose, born in a country without a lot of oportunities. And that's what I like about the movie as well - they emphasize this topic as well.
Let me know what you think about this movie. I hope you will like it as much as I did.
Have a wonderful night,
