Captain Phillips - Movie Review

Starring Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi and Catherine Keener.
Directed by Paul Greengrass.


I saw this a while back but noticed I never wrote a review. It'll probably be at the $2 theaters soon if it isn't already.  We'll probably see some sort of re-release when award-season ramps up, which'll be any day now.

Tom Hanks does his best work since Saving Private Ryan as Captain Phillips, an ordinary man thrust into an extraordinary situation. His money shot comes in the final few minutes, just raw, true emotion.  The journey that gets us there has a docu-drama feel that only director Paul Greengrass (United 93) can deliver.
