Nominated for 4 Golden Globes, and featuring a performance so incredible from Tom Hanks that it will remain etched deep inside your brain, Captain Philips is based on the real-life 2009 hijacking of the container ship Maersk Alabama by Somali Pirates. The film is breathlessly directed by British film-maker Paul Greengrass (Bourne Supremacy, Bourne Ultimatum), who manages to produce at one and the same time a gripping, terse thriller and a geopolitical vignette of the effects of globalisation in the Horn of Africa.
Greengrass singles in on the interactions between Captain Richard Philips (Hanks) and hijacker Abduwali Muse (debutant Barkhad Abdi) during the thrilling stand-off, with what Little White Lies say is "Gripping true-storytelling with an ending that will leave you in stunned silence."

I was unable to play the video through the sound bar. I have many dvd's and this is the first DVD not to play through the sound bar. The picture was fine however for a 4K film I expected better.
The higher resolution really shows in this great movie. Highly recommended
Tom Hanks is one of the best actors and this movie on the true story is excellent movie
