Category: Drama/Biography

The highlight of Captain Phillips was, to no one’s surprise, Tom Hanks. Despite being one of the most highly regarded A-list actors, Hanks managed to come across as the most down-to-earth man who you feel you have known your whole life. His performance will definitely prove to be award winning and one of his best yet. However, the real breakout performance of this film was the supporting lead actor, Barkhad Abdi, who gripped audiences with his chilling portrayal of a pirate. And even more incredible this was his first movie role…ever. The movie never quite got to the level of intensity that was expected but was an overall exciting film, despite the already well-known ending. Despite its strong reception, Captain Phillips will mostly likely be overshadowed by the exceptional lineup of films coming this holiday season that are sure to dominate this year’s awards.
