Terrific Movie. But when is a Tom Hanks movie not? Although a little slow through the middle, it more than makes up for it with an amazing finish ! A def. rent !

I don't know if it just me but i like the way they age TOM HANKS in this movie. It really suit him well. 4.5 out of 5.

I enjoyed the movie. Dragged a little, but good movie. Without a ton of foul language even. It was a good movie but didn't move me.

It works too hard to keep matters on an even, we're-all-more-alike-than-different keel, which is just one part of its chief problem of forcefully conveying information and intent. Full Review

Hanks and Abdi are so compellingly matched that unlike with most thrillers, it won't be the action climax in Captain Phillips that'll stick with you. It'll be that aftermath, which gets at the emotional toll of terrorism in a way few movies have. Full Review

The climactic rescue by Navy SEALs is riveting. But it's Phillips' devastating after-the-fact shock that leaves the most haunting impression in this ambitious, taut and captivating thriller. Full Review
Dan Jolin
Both Greengrass and Hanks are on award-deserving form in a riveting, emotionally complex and hugely intelligent dramatisation of a real-life ordeal. Full Review

It’s when the Somalis spirit Phillips away in a closed lifeboat that Captain Phillips becomes a great thriller, in part because Barry Ackroyd’s camera is stuck inside with the characters and its jitters finally seem earned. Full Review
