Synopsis
Captain Richard Phillips attempts to escape from armed Somali pirates while the U.S. Navy tries to rescue him.
Amazon.com
Director Paul Greengrass has made a career out of not holding back, with a series of films (including United 93 and The Bourne Supremacy/Ultimatum) that forcibly propel the audience out of bystander mode and into a visceral duck-and-cover reaction. (If he were a history teacher, his students would constantly be picking old gum out of their hair.) Captain Phillips, Greengrass's collaboration with a rarely better Tom Hanks, shows the filmmaker further refining his style, telling a true-life story of heroism with an immediacy that puts most movies based on fact out to staid pasture. Even if you know the historical record, there's no way to rest easy. Based on the book A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALS, and Dangerous Days at Sea, the story follows Cpt. Rich Phillips (Hanks), a no-nonsense family man taken beyond the brink when his cargo ship's travel around the African Horn is disrupted by four pirates. As the captain attempts to protect his crew and placate his captors (led by the outstanding newcomer Barkhad Abdi), his options--as well as his surroundings--quickly narrow. Greengrass, working from a script by Billy Ray (Shattered Glass), delivers what often feels like a master class in thriller filmmaking, sketching out the geography in clean, quick lines while also giving room for his initially faceless villains to develop into complex three-dimensional figures. Two-plus hours is a long time for the nerves to remain jangled, admittedly, and the director's trademarked in-your-face handheld techniques can sometimes seem on the verge of overwhelming the narrative. (Even an early, innocuous ride to the airport is constructed like a panic attack.) What ultimately takes Captain Phillips to the next level, however, are the final moments, when Greengrass chooses to hold still and let Hanks assume control, in a scene that brilliantly lets the character finally react to the unimaginable pressures of his ordeal. In real life, as filmmaker and star unforgettably demonstrate, crisis moments never cut neatly to black. --Andrew Wright
