Captain Phillips is a very good hostage movie. Excellent tension. Not your run-of-the-mill predictable scenario. Tom Hanks is perfect in the last scene. Barkhad Abdi is close to magnificent as the captain of the bad guys. Scary. I didn't think they'd make such a good film out of this story.
If you like flicks that are all about the mood, psychological nightmare, if you're a fan of Hanks, then this is for you.
