Movie Reviews

Metro - 10/10 by Matt Prigge In a way it seems like a parody of a [Paul] Greengrass film: His cameras shake and the music swells but the narrative is stuck in neutral for a good hour-plus. It's all herky-jerked up with nowhere to go.
Washington Post - 10/10 by Ann Hornaday Captain Phillips is such an impressive dramatic achievement that it comes as a shock when it gets even better, during a devastating final scene in which Hanks single-handedly dismantles Hollywood notions of macho heroism in one shattering, virtually wordless sequence.
Shadows on the Wall - 10/10 by Rich Cline Even though we know the end of the story, this film generates so much nerve-shredding suspense that we feel like we need to be debriefed afterwards.
Refinery29 - 10/10 by Seija Rankin Sometimes we're just in the mood for something really badass. And, Tom Hanks' new movie Captain Phillips is really badass. But, it's also so much more than that -- consider it the thinking person's action film.
Movieline - 10/10 by Pete Hammond Paul Greengrass has made a hell of a white knuckle thriller out of a story in which most people know the ending going in. Tom Hanks' best performance in years.
Common Sense Media - 10/10 by Sandie Angulo Chen Nail-biting story of ship hijacking is fabulous but intense.
We Got This Covered - 10/10 by Sam Woolf Combining the sustained tension of Bourne with the human heart of United 93, Greengrass makes Captain Phillips well worth following through the wringer.
Minneapolis Star Tribune - 10/10 by Colin Covert Hostage situations have inspired so many shallow, primitive genre films that it's eye-opening to see what an inspired filmmaker can achieve with the material.
Urban Cinefile - 10/10 by Andrew L. Urban If it weren't for the Greengrass/Ackroyd school of eye-crossing filmmaking, it would be even more intense and gripping, but this filmmaking duo prefer to use a hand held camera in all circumstances
Kaplan vs. Kaplan - 10/10 by Jeanne Kaplan "Captain Phillips" is a true action-packed drama. It's so real that you can almost smell the grime and grit in the small life boat.
FoxNews.com - 10/10 by Justin Craig "Captain Phillips" features Tom Hanks at the top of his game. It's hands-down one of the year's best films.
Digital Spy - 10/10 by Stella Papamichael The action flows thick and fast, but so much of what drives the film happens beneath the surface.
