Great watch and (another) excellent performance from Mr. Hanks. Looks like the best price so far.

Tom Hanks stars in this drama directed by Paul Greengrass based on the real life hijacking of a US cargo ship by Somali pirates. The Maersk Alabama became the first US cargo ship to be hijacked in 200 years when heavily armed Somalis boarded the vessel on the 8th of April 2009. As commander of the ship, Captain Richard Phillips (Hanks) inevitably found himself at the heart of events. Held hostage by the pirates under the command of Muse (Barkhad Abdi), Phillips attempts to protect both his crew and ship to the best of his ability. However, as the drama plays out and Phillips spends more time in the company of his Somali captors, he gradually comes to realise that they have a story, too. Far from the greedy, heartless thugs of pirate lore, the Somalis may well represent the forces of globalisation as surely as the Maersk Alabama - the underside. With the stakes high, the crisis intensifies and someone will have to pay the price...

Agreed, very well made. I forgot I was watching a movie! X)
So realistic, though there have been comments regarding certain inaccuracies compared to the real life story.
Just a great watch regardless anyway, Hanks never disappoints.
Rewatched BIG the other day, still so much fun. A timeless classic, certainly one of the greatest actors ever.

This is on Nowtv, brilliant film. hot for the dvd.

Can only echo the above comments. Watched this the other day on Now TV and was very impressed. Executed very well with a lot of tense moments. Very hard to watch the final scene without feeling the emotion of the situation. Heat added!
