Good copy, good story if not 100% accurate, a nice watch, 8/10 imho, and there are various subtitle files available if you want to know what the pirates are saying...and whats with all the downvoting on this site lately? most of us just comment so others can make a semi-informed decision to watch or not, take your politics somewhere else

Tom Hanks sure knows how to portray some serious emotion while acting. Awesome movie, I'm kicking myself it's taken me till now to watch. This movie has made me want to look up the details of the actual event. Captain Phillips in my opinion is one brave man. At the end before the credits started rolling I figured we would see...Captain Phillips retired. But no..the man went back to sea the next year. Amazing!

so far so good; Tom Hanks can do no wrong. I'm about 40 minutes in and I'm thinking "it's that easy to hijack a freighter?". so after watching the entire movie I'm still surprised that it's that easy for pirates to hijack a freighter. Hanks did excellent. Near the end during the rescue, especially during his med exam was really emotional; made me proud to be an American. BTW the promptfile link had subtitles for the Somali language scenes.

10/10, good movie, however, there is a back story folks should know about. When people in Somalia started to first pirate it was to keep off big fishing ships and it was mainly done by local fishermen. After the warlords who feed off the peoples misery found out that the locals were not only stopping the illegal fishing but taking their ships and selling for metal parts etc they started to get into the game in a big way. It is no longer the locals fishermen but big time warlords and their henchmen doing this, its gotten to the point where they are forcing local young men to join their pirate fleet on fear of death/pain on their families. So what started out as a legitimate defensive concern on the part of the locals has spiraled into out right thrift and murder and anyone trying to sugar coat it trying to make you believe they are the coast guard for a poor country is not telling you the whole story.

Tom Hanks as always, brought his A-game in this emotionally driven, edge of your seat movie. Loved the ending... I was fighting them tears from falling. LOL 10 stars all the way!!!!!!

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this, but it turned out to be a very good film, with brilliant directing and acting. If you're on the fence about whether to see this or not, do it, I don't think you will regret it.

Follow canadian guy1 instructions for subtitles on Firefox web browser. If you are in Chrome you need to download Chrome add-one Tampermonkey which allows you to run Greasemonkey scripts on Chrome. Took me about 10 mins to figure it out but it works like a charm!

Great movie 8.9/10 I recommend downloading the movie and the english subtitles from google search to translate somalian parts.

honestly watched about 30 min of the movie and as usual tom hanks does a great job acting.. Then I decided to read a little into the actual events that took place according to the crew of the ship and it turned my stomach to see how a movie that is supposed to be based on actual events was so misleading.. great fictional movie. Read up on what the crew said after the fact and Captain Phillips is not the person the movie makes him out to be.. yes I did finish watching the movie and still a little pissed at hanks for taking the part.

What a great film. I doubt Hanks wins any Oscars for this, but that last 5 minutes after his rescue was some of the best acting I've ever seen. Definitely more then a one time watch. 9/10

Very good movie! It's been quite a while since I have seen a great movie. This had good acting, good story, great suspense. Kept me interested throughout the whole thing, right up until the credits. Must watch, very well directed.

Great, great movie. Hollywood has this nasty reputation of painting countries that are not friendly to the US as enemies hell bent on destroying the US, through accusations of attacks on their countries or unpleasant character portrayal of those countries. This movie shows what the world is actually like. That countries like Somalia live in a dog eat, dog world. Something that many fortunate people around the world will never know. I have huge admiration for the makers of this film. 9.5/10
