I won’t lie to you guys… I was in tears when this movie ended. Tom Hanks put on the performance of his life in Captain Phillips. This movie had me gripped from the very beginning and just witnessing what Captain Phillips had to endure to survive that ordeal was heartbreaking. The movie starts off like a normal day for Captain Phillips and soon becomes much more as his ship is invaded by pirates and Captain Phillips does his very best to occupy the pirates while his crew hides. The small band of pirates eventually get forced from the ship but take Captain Phillips hostage and from there it was one intense moment after another while Captain Phillips fought for his very survival.

930353 - Captain PhillipsTom Hanks as usual was excellent and put on a very believable performance. Every actor in this movie did a great job. This movie was action packed but in a different way. There were no big ass explosions or fist fights between two overly grown men. Instead the majority of the movie took place in a small lifeboat in the middle of the ocean and we got to watch as Captain Phillips did what he could to survive. It got so intense that he eventually broke down and started writing a goodbye letter to his family. That was arguably the most powerful moment in the entire movie. It’s moments like this that makes a good movie and it was pulled off excellently.

The ending to this movie is what put the icing on the cake for me. I won’t spoil anything for anyone that hasn’t seen the movie but Tom Hanks reached a whole new level of brilliance with that performance. I was literally blown away and when the end credits rolled up I wanted to watch the whole movie over again. Captain Phillips is a must see and after watching this movie I can’t believe that Tom Hanks wasn’t even in the line up for an Oscar. He should have been and he probably would have won too.

Captain Phillips is a Legendary Movie and easily earns our recommendation. This is the best movie I’ve seen in a really long time and it’s one that I’m going to remember for years.

Our Verdict: 10/10

    I wouldn’t call this perfect, but it is very good.

    And I was in tears at the end, as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      It was a powerful ending and I agree that this movie isn’t perfect. That score means that it’s a must see not the movie is perfect :].
