USA 2013, 134 minutesDir. Paul GreengrassRating: [M] Genres: Suspense, Drama / Hostages & Terrorism
Feat. Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, Catherine Keener
Synopsis: Paul Greengrass directs with exhilarating dramatic realism this gripping true account of the hijacking of a U.S. container ship by Somali pirates.
“Greengrass creates an aura of urgency so compelling, so rooted in detail, that we temporarily forget what we know and hold our breaths for two-plus hours of tightening suspense.”~Boston Globe
Average rating (Good Enough). Showing 1-3 of 5 member reviews.
2 stars (Good Try) Not the normal standard expected from Paul Greengrass. Watch the realistic "Hijacking" instead. ~tubbs
3 stars (Good Enough) I wasn't expecting much, and was pleasantly surprised. Straightforward, gripping and avoids heroic cliche. The freshman Somali actors playing the pirates are extraordinary. ~HiFi
4 stars (Very Good) Worth watching for the Somali actors who seem to actually be wasted waifs. Tom Hanks expends extraordinary energy to depict the factual horror. ~rakau
