Movie Review: Captain Phillips

Last week I saw Captain Phillips, starring Tom Hanks as the title character. This movie is based on the true story of a cargo ship that was taken over by Somali pirates in 2009. The whole time I was on the edge of my seat: this film is VERY intense! You're wondering if someone's going to die, and if so, who is it going to be and when. What makes the movie scarier is the fact that this really happened: I can't imagine how frightened Captain Phillips must have felt! Although, Hanks did a very good job of portraying that fear. I felt for him the whole time, especially at the end when he was finally rescued and he's in total shock. I was very moved by the film and would definitely recommend it if you like the feeling of suspense!
