Did I tell you I cried happy tears. That's right. And I'm a big mean looking war vet. I melted. If you don't cry like a baby you don't have a heart. :)

Captain Phillips

This is the first movie I saw in IMAX and was really impressed. With the expanse of the open sea, the venue was so appropriate. Hanks was terrific as the captain, down to the New England accent. The Somali actors added authenticity to the movie. One even could feel sorry for the pirates and why they felt they had to do what they did. You could see Phillips developing "Stockholm Syndrome" with two of his captors. It was suspenseful from the beginning of the attack to the end. The audience was composed of adults who might not appreciate the computer-generated villains the younger generation craves. I polished off a medium popcorn all by myself!

Excellent film making with top rated performances by the cast, particularly Tom Hanks award winning performance during the final scenes, and the Somali cast. Where did they get these guys? Awesome! Very accurate story-telling and superb cinematography. The concluding naval scenes were highly accurate and shown with adherence to current doctrine. The movie is fast-paced with no wasted sub-plots, etc. Provided a look into the minds of the pirates and the type existence in which they must live. Don't miss this movie.

Intense, seat gripping 2 hours. Beautifully shot with scenes few of us have ever seen before -- the shipping docks and commercial loading! Somalia tribesman -- the acting of the Somalian pirates/kidnappers was stunning --- where did they get those guys? And Hanks gives a perfect performance with the last few minutes being off the charts! I-Max as always is great.

Tom Hanks deserves an academy award. His acting is amazing complete with the Vermont accent. This is a thriller that doesn't allow you to take your eyes off the screen.!!! It made me feel secure knowing we have such a competent military.
