[MOTW] Movie Of The Week: Captain Phillips – Pirates vs Hostages Action Thriller


Based on a true story of merchant mariner Captain Richard Phillips whose ship got held hostage by Somali pirates in the indian ocean, this film tells the dangerous and controversial ordeal between the crew vs pirates. Tom Hanks plays Captain Phillips and early critics have given the thumbs up citing one of his best acting performance in this true-life action thriller.

It’s quite disappointing to find this film being screened here a month later after its debut in USA, perhaps a strategy to keep earlier blockblusters from competing box office results. The consolation though, we now know this film achieved critical reception with positive reviews pouring all over the internet. Scoring a 8.1/10 from over 30,000 users on IMDB, an incredibly high 94% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, and winning Producer of the Year @ Hollywood Film Festival 2013, this is one of the top movies you shouldn’t miss if you are into action and thriller movies.

Opens today Thursday 14th November at all cinemas in Singapore.
