Captain Phillips (2013)

Captain Phillips was inspired by the true story of an American Cargo Ship being hijacked by Somali Pirates in 2009.  Paul Greengrass is the director and Tom Hanks plays the main Character Captain Phillips.  The screenplay was based on a book about the same incident written by Richard Phillips and Stephan Talty.  This film falls under dramatic thriller, I believe.  I enjoyed the movie as entertainment.  Real events in history always interests me.  It was interesting to see how big one of these cargo ships can be and how determined the Somali Pirates were to take it over.  I would recommend this movie to anyone that likes Tom Hanks.  You can’t really go wrong with Hanks in my opinion.
