Film Series: Captain Phillips

2013. USA. Dir: Paul Greengrass. With Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi. 134 min.

Greengrass’s (United 93, The Bourne Ultimatum) nail-biting, superbly acted docudrama depicts a merchant ship hijacked by Somali pirates. The escalating situation culminates in an intense standoff with the U.S. Navy that pits two “captains” together in the most extreme of circumstances.
