A powerful movie in which a Captain of a container ship (Hanks) is forced to contend with Somalian pirates. A cat and mouse game starts the movie and the entire crew is needed to outwit the pirates. They are convinced that the pirates will return and they are proven right. Automatic weapons, faster boats, and a ladder to board the ship is all the pirates need to gain entry to the ship. The group of pirates are lead by Muse (Abdi) and they are looking for big score. Both Muse and Captain Phillips try to outsmart each other but neither side has as much control as they think. Tom Hanks gives an amazing performance that I believe could land him his third Academy Award for Best Actor.
