Before you start, I expect this is not just a passing film. And not even though a considerable number of negative reviews, I felt film like it. And I can say that have not have experienced such emotions when watching.

A slow beginning gives the viewer an opportunity to peer into the work of the captain of the ship. According to as the approach of external danger, the growing tension up to the end of the film. Honestly, I expect a "sharp turn in the dynamic style Thriller".

But the film surprised. His main feature — everything looks real. You see completely ordinary people and how they handle it can. You fully experience the fear with captain Phillips. He is not a superhero, have no powers. Have it is only his intelligence the impeccable skills of the captain, whom he skillfully uses.

Last minute... That's all over... have all faces: captain pirates military, even the spectators. In the end, he will shout "I can more of this to endure". And you also! I like to over. Extremely stressful situation! I couldn't sit on the chair mentally customized military) When all over, I could not hold back the tears. The last minutes of the film was carried in a sense of calm: here all, all is well.

Many thanks to Floor Greengrass and his wonderful directing!

Tom Hanks looked great in this role. Its hero was chosen for themselves to danger in order to save the lives of the crew at this kept my composure, had cleverly led the negotiations and correctly assess the situation, He is a hero, an absolute hero.

No small share of tension and make the pirates. They are not professional actors, seen. But it gives the film the realism that I was so taste. They are certainly not are the real pirates, but probably seen how to behave like people, it and reflected in his game.

 — you Can get the money another way: to catch fish, and not to capture people.
 — Can be America's possible. (S.)

Another not a little important detail — in the film, sorry for not only the captain and members of the crew, but and by the pirates. They are not from the beautiful life went to capture ships. "I Have a boss, the boss has rules." They are not villains, they are doing work that in their environment already has become the norm. Using these characters you can feel that the pain felt by residents of such States. I note of Barkhad Abdi. It to a greater extent reflected the entire heavy load of his life and the lives of their fellows.

I would advised to see this film is for all: people can learn from captain Phillips.

Richard Phillips, the captain of the ship MV the Maersk Alabama, which Somali pirates attacked. But, the members of the ship not going down go to attack, to unfortunately, unsuccessfully, and the pirates capture the captain of the ship.

The film was waiting for more than six months and my expectations the film does not was acquitted. Worth noting that the situation in which gets Richard, based on real events. I also knowing the item, believed that the film was supposed to be much more interesting. Went to the movie my birthday is to see Tom Hanks in this zapominaniya day. To unfortunately, went from a cinema broken spirits. The entire film consists of noise, no given neither a one-minute silence to assemble and think some of the questions. The film is overrated.

So, go to the acting. The film, it's worth noting, intended for male audience, and therefore about the men at the head of which my idol — Tom Hanks. It as usual played wonderfully, but nomination for"Golden globe" don't deserve. Has earned the respect of the audience for the revival the role of captain Phillips. Fear experienced real Phillips feels very deeply, especially in the time of writing the letter. Going further, Barkhad Abdi. The man handsome, at least this is not. All shouting, a hostage situation and moments of the negotiations, in particular, were played phenomenally for which deserves a Golden globe and least nominated for the prestigious award "Oscar". And the rest of the cast is not remember.

Absolutely not my favorite Director — Paul Greengrass. Work is good, but they are they cut the eyes and the fault in all frames, things are changing too fast and my eyes hurt from such madness on the big screen. Sounds clearly not satisfied all the time asked "What is he said that?", and this was getting worse and worse. The writers have worked nicely, so as soon as I was attracted by the trailer and a brief description of what I immediately learn all the plot twists.

Paul Greengrass — English film Director, shooting in recent films about the America and about the people of this country. This uncle-filmmaker turned to the "green zone" of occupied Iraq ("do Not take a living"), and to 11 September ("Lost flight"). In the same time in the field of view of the Director story of captain Richard Phillips and his incident with Somali pirates.

What to say about Greengrass? He became famous due to how the known for his films about Bourne. And more about it has nothing to say. "Captain Phillips", a new creation of the Director, perhaps you can call event in the world cinema significant. On the background of the latest innovations, even though the fact that "Captain" was released in formats 3D and IMAX 3D, the picture has lost. However, this is not the important. It is important that the Director of his own picture is lost.

The story in this film is as old as the world. A true survivor the hardships and adversity, the dozens of times was on hair death came to success, survived and became a hero. Examples of such paintings-the darkness of utter. Captivating only the fact that film is based on the real story. And the viewer as you know, the bread does not feed, but let me see anything like that. And Greengrass skillfully uses this and therefore the storyline is not particularly the ceremony, the images of to work out also not was so as is Hanks in the cast and more convincing of what is happening leaves a shaky camera. Charming trash.

"Captain Phillips" cannot be called a film unfinished. This tape, which is a typical representative where everything is kept almost not snot a leading actor, can be called in an extreme case, only a sketch of this movie. However if Greengrass deadlines of film running out, it in his inability to make a movie or same thing in the lack of money is unknown. One gets however the impression that all the factors have played a role somewhere on the level of Tom Hanks, which the word always height.

Created and feeling that Paul Greengrass shoots and is for yourself. The Director of "Captain Phillips" plays with key moments in the film, as a little child. The biggest drawback of this film is that none of the images of this film is not is designed. Nor the antagonists or the protagonists. Greengrass makes the difference between them is only that the "bad" guys machines, and "good," these toys are not play. And in this whole superficiality of the picture, "Captain Phillips".

New work from Paul Greengrass in again proves Director it middle and making movies on haste — bad. "Captain Phillips" — one of the most major disappointments of the year. Save only captain Hanks.
