Movie Review: Captain Phillips
Very good movie, waited too long to see it, it's about to go out of theaters so catch it now or wait until sometime in '14 to get it on disk. In case you've been out of the loop, it's a straight-up telling of the 2009 hijacking of the Maersk Alabama off the Somali coast, and insofar as I could tell, it does tell the story straight up. Acting and production were both top-notch, and it is a compelling story. It is intense and there is some bloodshed, so leave the kids out on this one. Put it all together and it rates 3.5 out of 4 stars.
