What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Ann Hornaday Hanks anchors thrilling tale.
Paul Boekkooi Vindingryke, intelligente fliekkuns.
James Berardinelli Although it's too early to say whether Captain Phillips will be a player in the end-of-the-year Oscar race, there's little doubt in my mind that this will feature prominently on a list of 2013's most uncompromising thrillers.
Tomatometer Smart, powerfully acted, and incredibly intense, Captain Phillips offers filmgoers a Hollywood biopic done right -- and offers Tom Hanks a showcase for yet another brilliant performance.
