Last evening, I came back home from work and thought of watching a movie. I am happy that I selected the movie “Captain Phillips”. Tom Hanks, who is one of my favorite actor steals the show like always. Brilliant performances by the actors who are the pirates in this action flick. Learned that one of them also nominated for various awards as best supporting actor.
The film is based on the true story of 2009 Maersk Alabama hijacking, an incident during which merchant mariner Captain Richard Phillips was taken hostage by pirates in the Indian Ocean led by Abduwali Muse.
Look out for the cinematography, truly amazing! Direction is notable too. Tom Hanks is the man whom you will remember for the outstanding performance after watching this movie.
My rating for the movie : ✪✪✪✪✪
