Well, 9 of us saw this movie and our average score rates just above 4. It is the incredibly well depicted story of pirates capturing the Maersk Alabama off the cost of Somalia in 2009, taking its captain hostage and his subsequent rescue by navy SEALs. But the movie goes much deeper than that and into the psyche of the pirate boss as well as allowing Tom Hanks to play one of his greatest characters. The suspense is gripping even though the outcome is l known. We all felt that the movie could have done with 10 - 15 minutes being cut but, for all that, it's well worth going to.
