CAPTAIN PHILLIPS

Well-made (if missing a few notable details from actual events) and reasonably entertaining, Captain Phillips is owned not by everyman Tom Hanks but by newcomer Barkhad Abdi.

The only surprise not telegraphed in the preview trailer is that there is adequate backstory accorded to the Somali pirates to give the film a bit more context and complexity than it would have otherwise.
