This film will totally pull you in. How do you find an actor as talented as Barkhad Abdi (Muse)? If he does not win the academy award then there is something wrong in the universe.
This is a movie that can be watched on two levels. The first is just a great adventure. The second is what the United States has done to Somalia. Somalia has had its major resource ripped from it by the giant fishing fleets that have stripped the fish from the sea. They have nothing to keep them from piracy. When they resort to this, the full power of the United States descends on them and wipes them out. The faceless efficiency of the Seal team is terrifying.
Captain Phillips (Irish): There’s got to be something other than being a fisherman or kidnapping people.
Muse: Maybe in America, Irish, maybe in America.
