Captain Phillips Review: Tom Hanks at His Best

by at .  Updated at . Comments

You may think you know the story of Captain Phillips and that headline-grabbing Navy SEALs rescue from 2009. But the news hardly scratched the surface of Richard Phillips’ extraordinary and harrowing days at sea with Somali pirates pointing guns at him. Tom Hanks stars as Phillips and navigates the emotional rollercoaster that is his journey with a powerhouse performance that -- and this is saying something -- is his best work.
