  1. Superfrog's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    Very American in shape, making a hero story of bad preparation and desperation. Would work better with the Jaws soundrack. Fails on nearly everyway except being easily digested pulp

  2. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    Despite the flaws in writing and direction, Captain Phillips is not a bad film. It does tell a good, tense story, albeit one that feels like a by-the-numbers disaster movie, for example, as opposed to an account of real events, the cast all do their best with what they’re given, and there are one or two stand-out moments. But it’s not one I will be rushing to rewatch any time soon.

  3. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    "I'm captain now". The stars of this show are the pirates, I mean, what an acting debut. Intense, powerful, bold, real performances. So amazing. I would LOVE to see this story re-told through the eyes of the Somalian men and their lives leading up to this point - and minus the biased music score trying to inform us who to sympathise with. I feel there can't be too many stars given because of the misleading storyline.

  4. Robert H's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    I remember the release of this film but not aware of the full story. What evolves into some sort of macho-military nonsense keeps the human element very real. Hanks varies throughout the film, and although sells his authoritative Captain role, misses the mark on his family-man side strangely enough! Very American but heartfelt tale, even if you could tell where it was heading from the start!

  5. patrick's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    A strong four. Brilliant performances all round, casted very well and a strong and compassionate portrayal of the lives and motivations of all concerned. Tom Hanks was exceptional.

  6. amy's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    What happened! Sudden twist and this turns into jingoistic mess.

  7. Omnibus1's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    Oh great, been meaning to re-watch this for a while. Tense and perfectly paced thriller. The Liam Neeson 'man running' season can't be far away now. Love the amount of variety Mubi pack in over 30 days.

  8. Andrew Lang's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    Starts promisingly then goes totally Hollywood

  9. Lance L O T's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    It actually surprised me for being an extremely well told story together with amazing performances by Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi. The film is treated not like a real story or based on real events even though we know about it in the end, but it's handled like a thriller and like a story of how the hunter becomes the hunted. It's a very entertaining film that keeps you in even though you know the outcome.

  10. tom.edmonds's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    Superb acting again from Tom Hanks. The movie itself attempts - but unfortunately fails - to fully humanise the pirates and their desperate situation which would have been far more interesting than skydiving Navy Seals and a US military parade. There's great tension in this movie but it was a shame about the script (e.g. Why cast the great Katherine Keener and give her 3 lines?)

  11. lonesome-boat's rating of the film Captain Phillips

  12. auloel's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    Love the tense. Betapa mahalnya sebuah kebebasan.

  13. ceknklsn's rating of the film Captain Phillips

  14. sainte's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    You can tell this is the same director who did the Bourne movies, with all the camera constantly moving around. The last few scenes were really memorable. Great performances from the (actual!) Somalis.

  15. babycakesromero's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    cinema should be about transporting you to a situation and making you feel like you are inside it - greengrass does this spectacularly well, fully immersing you in the relentless tension of the situation. hanks gives a perfectly tuned performance and his final outpouring is genuinely heart-breaking

  16. Endre's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    There's something interesting in that medical checkup scene at the end, and the american captain's final reaction ("It's not my blood!"). Maybe this is a too sympathetic and naive interpretation, but it’s as if he (and the film) has been shot out of his practical concerns and acknowledges the systematic injustice of the whole situation. Here is no hero, but priviliged individual rights with blood on its hands.

  17. N!nA's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    Message: Don't mess with Americans or you are doomed !!!

  18. Thomas's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    Having seen Tobias Lindholm's thriller 'A Hijacking' this left me just slightly underwhelmed.

  19. angiebasuki's rating of the film Captain Phillips

    So basically a life of a white person worth 3 lives of other ethnicity ?
