➱ STAFF REVIEW:

Captain Phillips (2013) is a gripping and emotionally charged film directed by Paul Greengrass. Tom Hanks delivers a powerful performance as Captain Richard Phillips, bringing depth and authenticity to the character. Barkhad Abdi, in his film debut as the pirate leader Muse, is equally compelling, providing a nuanced portrayal of desperation and determination. The film's handheld camera work and rapid pacing create a palpable sense of tension and urgency. The screenplay, based on the true story, is well-crafted and engaging, keeping audiences on the edge of their seats. Captain Phillips is not only a thrilling action film but also a poignant exploration of human courage and the complexities of piracy in modern times.
