Captain Phillips is a heart-racing, adrenaline filled new movie that will have you on the edge of your seat through the whole film. Based on a true story of a pirate attack off the coast of Somalia in 2009, this is a terrifying story of the poverty of Somalians and their desperate measures to get money.
Starring the famous Tom Hanks who plays the role of Captain Phillips to less known actors, this movie has actors that are so believable that the plot becomes that much more intense. If you're a fan of fast-paced storylines, or just want to watch a good movie, go see Captain Phillips. This is one of the best movies I have ever seen and I am buying it the minute it comes out on DVD (and seeing it in theatres again!).
A warning: If you are one of those people who tells themselves 'It's just a movie.' when they get scared, this is one you will not be able to do that for. Unfortunately, this movie is based on real events. The way Somalians live and earn money is very tragic, and what they have to do to survive is out of desperation.
Still, it's definitely worth seeing (maybe more than once!) so go now!
