Well, Tom Hank's body of work is pretty consistent and he seems to have a good eye for scripts. It's definitely a worthwhile biography to watch. Pretty gripping story and the movie moves along. The IMDB rating of 8.1/10 is a bit high though, as it currently has a higher rating/ranking than some classics.
I thought when this story broke that there were some crew members interviewed that downplayed Captain Phillips heroic acts. I guess there's two sides to every story and this is from his viewpoint. I could see how some of the actions he took during the movie were questionable and how the crew felt he jeopardized their safety and put them in harms way.
It's very questionable how the ship apparently had no weapons on board? I know it's easier said then done, and that the samolian's were strapped with AK's, but it also seemed questionable that no one tried to stay sheltered on deck and simply flick the ladder off to sink to the bottom of the ocean. Problem solved.
Was this nominated for best picture or some other major award?

The pirate guy in the previews looks like a zombie.
I'm just glad I don't have to see him smile on TV anymore. I hope he realizes that he was used and is going to fall from Hollywood's limelight. Take his green card away and send him back to Somalia.
I thought this was a good film. My onlyu question was what were the pirates saying?
Through the entire movie not 1 piece of dialogue was interpreted. I understanding getting the over all emotion of their dialogue but what did they say?
