Movie Review: Captain Phillips

Gripping. Intense. Brilliant. Captain Phillips was a film with plenty of tense moments, a decent amount of action and running dialogues that successfully sustained my interest for the whole duration of it. This offered quite a ride! The cinematography was solid, the story was well-written and expertly crafted, the direction was superb and the performances, particularly from Tom Hanks and Barkhad Arbi, were excellent. The quiet scenes were poignant, the action sequences were intense and the final closing minutes had an emotional depth that was outstanding. The editing was a tad frenetic though, mostly on the use of shaky-cam, that it was quite dizzying to watch in parts, but I digress. If you like an fantastic thrill ride, then Captain Phillips is for you. By far, one of the standout films of the year. 9.5
