So, I may have liked the last half hour way more than everything that lead up to it, but still Captain Phillips is a pretty good film. I use Movie Outline all the time. This felt like a choice that was a lot safer to me.
Ruth disagreed with you, Hunter. The last ten minutes were nuts, I wholeheartedly agree. It just made me think about the might of the US military, because it seems like we could just shoot all those pirates at any time and we were holding back just to be nice.

Definitely my favorite thriller of the year, as well as one of my favorites in general. Captain Phillips is not a superhero. How many movies do you know that surprise you with an amazing scene after the climax? When Captain Phillips is saved and brought on board a navy vessel, he is in shock and goes straight to the medical bay.
They let them but they keep Phillips. When that plan fails, the pirates agree to take the cash from the safe and flee in the Maersk's lifeboat.
If you're looking for a tool to help you nurture your idea for a movie into an actual shooting script I recommend this program without hesitation.
To echo basically everybody except the Academy it seems Hanks is very very good here. Follow IMDb on. Shock Ending By Karel Segers.
