Movie Reviews

Critic's Notebook - 10/10 by Martin Tsai But once the pirates are aboard the Maersk Alabama, any semblance of nuance is out the window and into the sea.
ReelTalk Movie Reviews - 9/10 by Donald J. Levit As in many films of this genre, fiction or fact, finesse gives way to firepower force, and though the real-life outcome is fixed in advance, the voyage is exhilarating.
Salt Lake Tribune - 9/10 by Sean Means Not only a riveting drama about quiet heroism, but an eye-opening look at a clash of cultures.
Sacramento News & Review - 8/10 by Daniel Barnes Captain Phillips is indeed a gripping, grueling, agonizing, nail-biting, brutalizing, kick-punching motion picture, but beyond the technical thrills and vise-grip tension, it also offers a weary, hard-won empathy.
Metro Times (Detroit, MI) - 8/10 by Corey Hall Tom Hanks gives a fine, un-showy and sublimely focused performance.
Movie Dearest - 7/10 by Fr. Chris Carpenter One of the ten best films of 2013.
Movie Mezzanine - 7/10 by Russell Hainline Storytelling in its purest form: it works as a no-fat thriller, yet it achieves nuanced character dimension and thematic complexity
SF Weekly - 7/10 by Jonathan Kiefer While the events depicted here do at times suggest a sort of Die Hard on the high seas, the tone is refreshingly anti-triumphalist.
Independent - 4/10 by Geoffrey Macnab The disappointing aspect to Captain Phillips is that it doesn't go beyond action movie conventions.
