Captain Phillips: A False Film

Satisfactory Essays
Directed by the British Paul Greengrass (the same director of The Bourne Ultimatum), Captain Phillips is an intense drama based on a true story, I mean, it happened in real life. The performance of Tom Hanks as Richard Phillips was convincing and very emotional. Script by Bill Ray who divided the story into two different scenes, the container ship at the beginning and the little orange lifeboat in the rest of the movie. This film adaptation recycled the most interesting moments from the original book. Furthermore, the casting was truly perfect because the Somali actors gave a special touch. One of them is Barkhad Abdi who plays Muse, the lead who takes Captain hostage. In fact, Abdi won a BAFTA award in 2014.
