An amazing Story, a real Thriller, especially for the final 2/3's part. A great development of the main character, & we can't lose with Tom Hanks playing that part...
If even only 1/2 of the story is realistic, Mr Phillips was amazingly strong, for a mid-aged, non-military person; a "hero", in how he protected his crew. And, no matter how detestable these Somalian pirates, the movie showed how such desparation leads to wrong choices, when no other choices seem possible....
