Captain Phillips directed by Paul
Greengrass—debatably contemporary cinema’s master of actualism and he proves it
one more time with this amazing real story based drama, action and full of
thrilling movie.

Captain Phillips is master piece of Paul Greengrass & screen play by Billy
Ray describes the abduction by Somalian pirates of the logistic supply
ship MV Maersk Alabama during April 2009. The movie opens in
Captain Richard Phillips’s (Tom Hanks) home in Vermont, rushing out for his
next commercial voyage, from & to Shalala and Kenya respectively, telling his
wife (Catherine Keener) how his work has changed of lately. ‘Times are tough, the shipping business is
that much more competitive, you need to be strong out there.’  This dialogue shows the very cruel reality of
the film, but it helps to display the usual job role of Phillips, a domestically
grounded working individual rather than a conventionally strong character.

When film proceeds to Somalia, the real cause of the issue is presented
like why and how under what circumstances this event took place, the socio-political
situation comes further into focus. We see the average young Somali lifestyle
and living standards. By occupation, fishermen on high tides of hard times, now
forced to practice piracy by the orders of local assailant who pushes them to
hijack biggest logistic supply ship or get ready for bitter result.

The film doesn’t
tones down about the reality that the four Somalian pirates who attack
the Alabama are
brutal, desperate young men’ but, unlike much news coverage, it makes us aware
who they are, and what’s behind their contempt for the powerful nations that
they’re nevertheless mesmerized by.  These fishermen don’t seem to be happy about
these big commercial cargo ships sailing their coasts accusing them for
erupting their fishing business. This is also a story about universalization
and its discontents. One can see how beautifully Greengrass shows the two sides
of the coin.

It’s also a film about the gravity of the moment and the detail
of that particular tick. In Paul’s most of the films we notice that every single
move has its own outcomes, and every move must be showcased professionally,
when happened what and why? Captain Philips also narrates the contemporary sea
business, threats as well as security precautions by Law enforcements agencies.
In this film Phillips is a person of protocols, policies and dedicated to
incorporate all these in his fellow crew members but this act of his don’t seemed
to be appreciated by his new crew (there’s a telling scene early on in which he
softly reminds them not to exceed their 15-minute coffee break). Later in the
film Philip portrays himself as true professional who is keeps his fears
together in hard times of being dictated by pirates as well by creating
different road blocks for the uninvited guests cleverly.

The pirates too emerge as professionals, In spite of the fact
these hijackers are very new to this hijacking business where, there is no set
criteria and rule of law to do what in what situation since they were deceived
by Philip’s scheme at first attempt but they return more organized which
results in young pirate leader Muse stands before Philips proclaiming himself
as the new captain but can’t resist taunting Phillips, whom he named “Irish.”

Once the ship is completely taken over by pirates, we experience
sudden & different happenings here and there but all of this is showcased
beautifully. Paul seems very precise about making us confident that this movie
is a reconstruction of known events in a known order. His actualism is nothing
but fascinating.

The film’s most brilliant stroke, arguably, comes at the end,
the rescuing SEALs gets over with the situation by the best dialogue of the
movie “EXECUTE” when all three pirates are killed simultaneously  by Bainbridge’s Crew. Followed by Tom Hanks blindfolded,
sits shaking, covered in blood, for the moment a shattered man.

The reason behind Captain Philips being my one of the favorite is
becauseof Greengrass’s realistic approach towards displaying two contrast sides
of picture from two completely diversified dimensions and emotional
understanding of characters for each other being in that situation. His work focuses
on presenting the reality with audience completely engaged by keeping his work
relatively close to the actualevents and that’s the beauty which amazes throughout.
