Captain Phillips is a multi-layered examination of the 2009 hijacking of the U.S. container ship Maersk Alabama by a crew of Somali pirates. It is - through director Paul Greengrass's distinctive lens - simultaneously a pulse-pounding thriller and a complex portrait of the myriad effects of globalization. The film focuses on the relationship between the Alabama's commanding officer, Captain Richard Phillips, and the Somali pirate captain, Muse, who takes him hostage. Phillips and Muse are set on an unstoppable collision course when Muse and his crew target Phillips' unarmed ship; in the ensuing standoff, 145 miles off the Somali coast, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control.
The film is directed by Academy Award nominee Paul Greengrass, from a screenplay by Billy Ray based upon the book, A Captain's Duty: Somali Pirates, Navy SEALs, and Dangerous Days at Sea, by Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty.
It is produced by Scott Rudin, and Academy Award nominees Dana Brunetti (Best Picture, The Social Network, 2010) and Michael De Luca (Best Picture, The Social Network, 2010; Best Picture, Moneyball, 2011). Executive producers include Gregory Goodman (Stop Loss, 8 Mile), Eli Bush (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Moonrise Kingdom) and two-time Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey (Best Actor, The Usual Suspects, 1995; Best Supporting Actor, American Beauty, 1999).

I have seen a lot of Tom Hanks film and to an extent your going to see a decent movie when he is cast. Altogether I have seen many films and I cannot say I have watched a movie and began to hypoventilate. This film is truly breathtaking. At the time of writing on Zavvi and Anywhere else is the fact that Captain Philip's captures are chewing KHAT. This is a drug that has been used for a very long time. Unfortunately users who use it constantly have a severe problem when they run out all of a sudden. Trapped in a very small lifeboat with no more water and Khat does not make for a happy environment. You are on the edge of your seat regardless of the fact you know how it works out. SHOULD NOT BE A SPOILER! The real jaw dropping moment of this film is the acting. Yes, Hanks is absolutely amazing but the last 10 minutes is unbelievable. Hank's is in shock. It is like something I have never seen before. I have never seen a man being treated for shock before and it is disturbing to watch. Mind Boggling. The Steelbook is very attractive for you Steelbook collectors and at the time of writing the price was very very reasonable. However if I had known what this disc contained I would not of cared what it cost. It's a lesson in PERFECT acting. Back to reality. I am so pleased that someone came up with the obvious idea of putting some kind of security on this ships. Slightly better than defending yourself against an AK47 with a water Hose.
Over all is ok and very fast for shipmmet just 10Day ship to Thailand .Thanks . :)
Good steelbook.Love artwork different from movie poster/blu-ray cover.Artwork inside.
I was very excited to see Zavvi come out with this steelbook. It is a great addition to the collection though the previous artwork was seemingly a bit more aesthetically pleasing. Great purchase and a great movie!
Great cover and art work and what a price. Get it while you can !!!
This movie is full of intense and thrilling moments, I really loved it and recommend it to everyone. Also the steelbook is very stylish.
Excellent steelbook and very nice cover and art. Good job Zavvi!
Ultimate edition of this great movie. As a extras you can watch behind the scenes featurette. Must have!!!
Blistering performances and palpable tension throughout justify all the attention this film has received throughout awards season. Only pity is that the steelbook is very poorly executed, featuring lackluster artwork and a below average finish. A true shame for such a good movie.
Excellent movie with superb blu ray quality. Packaged to Zavvi's usual high standard. Arrived undamaged within 2 days of order.
Absolutely top drawer movie. Well recommended.
Excellent film well worth 5 star's
An amazing film with some class acting from all and some of the best acting I've ever seen in the last 10 minutes.
He is Outstanding in this thoroughly entertaining film. A true story that keeps you gripped from beginning to end and as good as any other I have seen in the last 12 months. Worth every penny, especially as it comes with ultraviolet code too.
Really enjoyed this movie. Great cast and story line. I can highly recommend this film.
