"Captain Phillips" is rated PG-13 and runs two hours and 13 minutes.
Here's what the critics are saying:
Hanks deftly captures Phillips' blend of bravery, heroism and abject terror in a wonderfully minimalist performance, one of his best. — Claudia Puig, USA Today
[Tom] Hanks and [Barkhad] Abdi are so compellingly matched that unlike with most thrillers, it won't be the action climax in Captain Phillips that'll stick with you. It'll be that aftermath, which gets at the emotional toll of terrorism in a way few movies have. — Bob Mondello, NPR This is a film with an emotional quotient that manages to combine the dynamics of human behavior under stress with our affinity for the nuts and bolts of realistic action. — Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times "Captain Phillips" is a Tom Hanks movie. It is also a Paul Greengrass movie, and the cinematic tumult director Greengrass adroitly captures and sustains in the service of a narrative has a way of keeping his stars unmoored — in a good way — while trumping conventional Hollywood notions of a star vehicle. — Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
