Looks good. I'll probably go see it. I rarely go to the movie theater.

Been seeing the trailers for it lately, will just wait for it to come out on red box as we all know it has a happy ending

Looks like it is going to have a bunch of inaccuracies. Maybe I'll watch it when it comes out on DVD, but it doesn't look worth the price of going to the cinema.

Most movies about real events do. But the title of this seems as if its a Captain Phillips publicity stunt. Why name if after the captain and not after the ship? Call me skeptical.

The whole ordeal took less time than Tom Hanks does getting into makeup for this movie.

Yeah I agree. I think this movie looks a little silly. We already know what happens as this has been covered so many times. I think the event is too short to make a movie out of it but who knows.

I was pretty excited for Lone Survivor but then I found out that POS Wahlberg is playing Luttrell

The preview bit that I saw (not a regular theatrical trailer) before the film I saw on Saturday...well, it seemed to me that they're trying to humanize the pirate Al-Shabaab scumbags, bunch of "they have to do drastic things due to poverty" bullshit.

At the moment, no plans to see it.

Wasn't it his hubris that ultimately placed his ship in harms way? I remember reading what his first mate said about Phillips and the decision to skirt Somalia's shore closer than necessary. That it was done to shave time and save money. Admirable goals otherwise but placing men at risk because of it.

Night versus day time jump is immaterial for the movie, it looks cooler if they jump at night though.

The pirates are not necessary Al-Shabab. Most are just opportunists who are looking for cash. Since most companies will pay they found a market. It's like the Barbary Pirates during the 1600-1700s. Piracy pays.. Until the Europeans, Japanese, Russians, Indians, Chinese, or our Navy start killing you.

Yes. The ship was to close to the coast and the crew didnt like it but Phillips did what the owners wanted. So they have a little bit of blame as well.

In the movie ads, Hanks is making Phillips look like a douchebag. Hanks looked so nerdy that I didn't recognize him.

Among other things, but I've worked on ships, although never outside of the U.S. unfortunately. Other things just don't sound right based on what I've heard from people I know who DO work out in that area or based on what I can recall reading about the incident in the news.

That's what I got from the trailers I saw...poor misunderstood pirates who just attack unarmed vessels and kill innocent crews because they're misunderstood and need to feed their families..

All I remember from that incident is that the sitting US president tried to micromanage it to a degree and took upon himself the lone authority to authorize the shooting of pirates.


US Presidents have allowed our navy to shoot pirates at will for a couple of hundred years and the then sitting jug-headed US president decided to make political hay of the incident!



Hence, I have no desire to see the movie based on these true events.

This movie is getting a lot of buzz as being fairly accurate.
Hanks is also getting serious praise for his role in this movie, oscar praise.
I'd wait to hold judgement, especially based off the trailers.
