5.0 out of 5 stars You Need to See This
I watched this first before the film starring Tom Hanks. In my opinion this rates a 5+ wheras the film would be 3-. If you want to watch a film of this incident - WATCH THIS ONE!!

I watched this prior to watching the documentary. It very interesting through out the picture and life like which surprised me as I often think 'based on true stories' will steer away from reality

It was a present for my husband who said it was very good. It gave a good and true account of the facts helping him to understand the situation much better.

I was very disappointed as I thought I had ordered the recent full length feature film. The DVD was interesting but not what I was looking forward to.It maybe my fault for not reading the small print.

4.0 out of 5 stars Zippy and fast paced., 1 Mar 2014
By 
Yvonne N (Wiltshire England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Captain Phillips The True Story - Somali Pirate Takedown (please note this is not the film but a documentary) [DVD] (DVD)
I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I don't normally go for action type films or those based on true stories. However in this case I'm so glad that I listened to the reviews,rather than my own bias as far as genres go. The pace is kept up really well and the tension is built up perfectly, particularly in the early part of the film. Good performances all round. Tom hanks is a particular favourite of mine and he certainly does not disappoint here. The direction is brilliant too. I would thoroughly recommend this film to anyone. A classic not to be missed. The pace drops just slightly mid-film and there is a smidgeon of cliché in some of the lesser characters which is why I haven't given it a five. However I'm being picky here. It's so face paced during the early part of the film that there is bound to be a slight drop at some point which is therefore more noticeable.
