Columbia Pictures' action-thriller Captain Phillips stars two-time Oscar winner Tom Hanks in the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the US-flagged MV Maersk Alabama, the first American cargo ship to be hijacked in two hundred years. 


Watched this true story film - Captain Phillips with Gary and Koon Siang after Juliana wedding yesterday!

The story plot was good though predictable. In the beginning, I thought the story flow pretty well which captured my attention, it made me ponder what will happen next. Nice intense scenes which bring the climax of this film to another level. However, as it goes on, it gets quite draggy at certain scenes without much twist. 

Good that it injected certain humor elements to liven the show a little. Towards the end, I thought that it touched the viewers on how Captain Phillips was finally being rescued and survived from this hijacked.

One good true story film you ought to catch!
