  • Kenneth Turan

    The piercingly realistic Captain Phillips will exceed your expectations.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Captain Phillips is such an impressive dramatic achievement that it comes as a shock when it gets even better, during a devastating final scene in which Hanks single-handedly dismantles Hollywood notions of macho heroism in one shattering, virtually wordless sequence.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Captain Phillips, a movie that insistently closes the distance between us and them, has a vital moral immediacy.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Captain Phillips is harrowing, inspiring, a must-see piece of moviemaking.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Even as Greengrass’ signature kinetic style renders us nearly seasick and emotionally spent from the action, it’s the work of Tom Hanks that makes this film unforgettable.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    This is an intense and complicated story, and the film doesn't rush it. It lets it unfold and build, methodically.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    As we bounce over rough seas on the Maersk, we know just what will be lost if the Somalis don’t keep their trembling fingers off their triggers. As the title suggests, this is not a movie about an incident: It’s a movie about a man who stays very real to us.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    At this point in his celebrated career, there shouldn't be much new that Hanks can show us. But there is, as the actor reaches deep inside to express the relief of dodging death as I've never seen it played before. He's in shock; we're awed.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Dan Jolin

    Both Greengrass and Hanks are on award-deserving form in a riveting, emotionally complex and hugely intelligent dramatisation of a real-life ordeal.

    Empire Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    It falls to Hanks and his movie-star presence to anchor this ambitious enterprise, and he does some of his most impressive acting without saying a word.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The most gripping based-on-fact film so far this year.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Rodrigo Perez

    It’s a breathlessly told movie; both meticulous and frenetic, sweat-soaked and methodical. It will take hold and won’t let you go, and it’s one of the most engaging movies of the year.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Marc Mohan

    The pressure cooker atmosphere builds for almost too long, but when the resolution finally occurs, the sense of relief is that much more palpable.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    Hanks and 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.

    NPR Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Captain Phillips could have stopped at simply depicting what happened; it’s the steps it takes to examining why it happened that make it extraordinary.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    With Captain Phillips we get a viable thriller whose conclusion is already known, and a character who reacts to circumstances rather than a personal, heroic code. And now, it’s a story preserved in brine.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    While this is arguably Greengrass’ best film, it’s almost certainly his most urgent. Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    It might have all been another Hollywood-formula flick with American might taking on the alien other. But Greengrass gives Phillips and Muse the time, aboard a covered lifeboat, to discover shared beliefs and fears.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    The climactic rescue by Navy SEALs is riveting. But it's Phillips' devastating after-the-fact shock that leaves the most haunting impression in this ambitious, taut and captivating thriller.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    Despite the obvious mismatches involved, this isn’t a simplistic smackdown. Freighted with weighty issues, Captain Phillips is a film worth debating.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Captain Phillips manages to expose us to a few things that are unusual in a thriller, including sympathy for the enemy and, in Hanks’s performance, the frailty that is the other side of heroism.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    In Captain Phillips, director Paul Greengrass pulls off the same remarkable feat he accomplished with "United 93": He takes a true story in which the outcome is already known and transforms it into a gripping, wrenching, devastating thriller.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    Director Paul Greengrass creates an aura of urgency so compelling, so rooted in detail, that we temporarily forget what we know and hold our breaths for two-plus hours of tightening suspense.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    Mr. Hanks, in yet another in a long line of diverse character studies, does a beautiful job as the voice of reason and logic, trying to inspire bravery and maintain order amid the noise and panic. In the big emotional scenes, as well as the small, nerve-jangling scenes, he is an artist at the top of his skill.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Captain Phillips works precisely because Hanks isn't a muscle-bound, gun-toting figure (nor does he turn into one during the course of the movie). Placed in an untenable position, he uses guile and intelligence instead of brawn and weapons to enhance his survival chances.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The performances and Greengrass’s way with action immerse us and make Captain Phillips a tight, taut,edge of your seat thriller even if you remember the ending.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Greengrass is an expert hijacker, too. He hijacks our good sense.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    A great many filmmakers — too many — use handheld cameras to evoke a sensation of raw, this is really happening immediacy. But director Paul Greengrass is unique. At a glance, his live-wire, ragged-camera method may seem overly familiar, but the way he employs it, that method is as expressive as the style of a superb novelist.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    Squeezing every drop of tension from wet-ink recent history, Phillips only falters when making its protagonists mouthpieces in a broader geopolitical debate. Otherwise, it’s full steam ahead to the Oscars.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    And then comes that transcendent last scene, in which the man whose side we’ve barely left during this incredible ordeal is suddenly revealed as the best kind of hero, not super at all but ordinary and vulnerable and human.

    Slate Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Captain Phillips is a voyage well-worth taking.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    This a quasi-war movie set in peacetime; these men are fighting to the death, but not for nation or principle or ideology — or at least, not a conscious ideology: they are caught in larger economic currents.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    The surprise is that Captain Phillips is a surprise in the first place, pitching and rolling tirelessly like the sea on which it is set and, in the process, becoming one of the most enjoyable and well-made movies to hit theaters this year.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • David Gritten

    Captain Phillips is a triumph of solid, professional and sometimes inspired film crafts, deserving of all the plaudits that come its way.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    The film rips right along and never relinquishes its grip.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Susan Wloszczyna

    It's one of the most emotionally draining climaxes of the year. Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It is, however, just about perfect in its wrenching emotion, expressed by an actor clearly up to the challenge of acting in a Paul Greengrass docudrama — which is to say, acting with as little capital-A Acting as possible.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    More often that not, however, Captain Phillips is riveting. Though he remains unfortunately convinced that violently shaking his camera is the best way to achieve visual urgency, Greengrass nevertheless excels at pressure-cooker scenarios.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    It's hard to imagine Captain Phillips in the hands of any other filmmaker -- and Captain Phillips in the hands of Greengrass looks exactly like anyone familiar with his work would expect. It does justice to the material even while playing too conscientiously by the book.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    The film succeeds on its own terms — an exciting entertainment that makes us feel good about the outcome, and about the reach of American power, rather than its limits. Yet the narrative container is far from full. There isn't enough incident or complexity to sustain the entire length of this elaborately produced star vehicle.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Even if Captain Phillips treads into some ideologically rough waters, there's one thing that's hard to find fault with: Hanks gives a performance that goes from good (through the first 124 minutes) to extraordinary (in the last 10).

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    It’s when the Somalis spirit Phillips away in a closed lifeboat that Captain Phillips becomes a great thriller, in part because Barry Ackroyd’s camera is stuck inside with the characters and its jitters finally seem earned.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    There is something too dry and austere about Greengrass and Ray’s telescoped vision, which touches only fleetingly on the pirates’ motives, the suffering of the Somali people and the collateral damage of global capitalism.

    Variety Full Review
  • R. Kurt Osenlund

    It works too hard to keep matters on an even, we're-all-more-alike-than-different keel, which is just one part of its chief problem of forcefully conveying information and intent.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Richard Corliss

    Hanks has a wonderful scene, late in the film, that shows a strong man collapsing into frailty. It hints at the emotional depth the movie might have plundered. The rest of Captain Phillips must rely for its drive on the relentless mechanical agitation of Henry Jackman’s score. It can’t save an overly muscled docudrama that is more pounding that truly gripping.

    Time Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    Director Paul Greengrass remains a genius of claustrophobia, yet his better films — "Bloody Sunday," "United 93" and "The Bourne Ultimatum" — all beat with a stronger sense of central identification. He doesn’t have as much to work with this time, and his solution is to slow down the pace. The result is more clarity, but also more monotony.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    Why, then, do we not feel bullied by the result? Partly because the camera, as I say, tells a subtler tale than the dialogue does, and lures us into a grudging respect for the bravado of Muse and his men; but mainly because of Tom Hanks. This most likable of actors deliberately presents us with a character who makes no effort to be liked.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Andrew O'Hehir

    Not far below the surface Captain Phillips is also an unpleasant and uncomfortable experience, a film that’s not entirely happy with itself. Full Review
