The capture and rescue of a merchant ship, based on a true story, is, on its own, a suspenseful tale. However the superb acting of Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, and others along with the expert direction of Paul Greengrass highlight the human drama of chaos, fear, poverty, heroics, bravado, and sympathy. You will be deeply touched by this movie. A must-see.
