Director: Paul Greengrass
Starring: Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi

Captain Phillips is the remarkable action packed thriller of the year. Based on the true story of the 2009 hijacking of US cargo ship Maersk Alabama by Somali pirates, this film is captivating throughout. Masterful in all aspects of production, with sharp direction, beautiful photography and a riveting screenplay which ensures audiences will sit motionless as the extraordinary events unfold on the big screen.

Tom Hanks is a genius, an actor who is credible in any character he plays. He returns to the screen after a long absence as Captain Phillips, giving a powerful performance in his most memorable role to date, as the captain who is more concerned with the welfare of his crew than that of his own.

The latest villain who supersedes all others in recent years is Muse, the head pirate in this film who will stop at nothing to take over the ship. Effective in his portrayal of this criminal, actor Barkhad Abdiís performance creates engulfing tension on screen, with his continual screaming and threatening, most of which is in African.

A feature which adds to the realism and heightens the sense of urgency is the prevalent use of unsteady camera work, a technique which is abundantly used in action films. Captain Phillips is a wonderful cinematic achievement. This story of bravery, honour and the desperate fight for survival is a standout, and is one of the most satisfying movies of the year.
