Product Description

Captain Phillips is the blockbuster film based on the incredible story of a shipping company captain held hostage by Somali pirates.

Now, Discovery presents the truth behind the US Navy SEAL Team rescue that finally freed Captain Richard Phillips after a dramatic four-day standoff between the pirates and the US Navy.

Experience the intense drama through stunning new footage of the actual rescue as it played out on the high seas.

First Mate Shane Murphy and Chief Engineer Mike Perry offer a fascinating account of events and show the amazing courage displayed in the face of danger.

The programme also features re-enactments of events on board the captured ship, play-by-play expert analysis of the US Navy s efforts to rescue Captain Phillips and CGI depicting the US Navy SEAL team s deadly final engagement with the pirates.

my friends loved this film and highly recommended it, I didn't enjoy it as much as I had read the book first so was constantly comparing and waiting for certain things to happen. Enjoyed the book more

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

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!!
