Based on the true story of Captain Richard Phillips who was taken hostage by Somalian pirates in a cargo ship hijacking in 2009. Directed by Paul Greengrass, creator of the Bourne trilogy. Captain Phillips is an intelligent and compelling thriller. Tom Hanks is riveting as Captain Richard Phillips. His performance is mind-blowing and definitely worthy of an Oscar nomination. Newcomer Barkhad Abdi, although having no chance against the talents of Tom Hanks, is breathtaking as Muse. The Somalian pirate that plans what should have been a simple hijacking, into a complicated negotiation with the navy who come to rescue Phillips. Captain Phillips and his crew trying to outsmart the pirates and protect themselves is engrossing to watch. I can't remember the last time I saw an action movie this good. Captain Phillips is one of the most exciting movies of the year.
