Top 10 Films of 2013

Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips, one of GAYOT's Top 10 Films of 2013




Captain Phillips - Review

A nail-biting retelling of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates, Captain Phillips manages an even-handed discourse in a film that could have otherwise included a flag to wave with the price of admission. Tom Hanks delivers a superb performance as hard-working American sea captain Phillips, while first-time actor Barkhad Abdi puts in a star-making turn as Muse, the Somali pirate captain. Directed by Paul Greengrass, Captain Phillips is a genuinely smart thriller typical of the director's best work. Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips
