Movie Reviews

New York Daily News - 10/10 by Joe Neumaier Captain Phillips unfurls with an intensity that knocks the wind out of you. Director Paul Greengrass' film is the most gripping based-on-fact film so far this year.
WaffleMovies.com - 10/10 by Willie Waffle Hanks is very good, but I don't know if this is Oscar-worthy work.

Chicago Daily Herald - 10/10 by Dann Gire The big moments in Captain Phillips belong to Hanks, who renders an insightful portrait of a regular, decent guy dealing with life-or-death emergencies.
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.
Screen International - 10/10 by Mark Adams An enthralling and beautifully made action-drama driven by an absorbing lead performance from Tom Hanks ...
