Captain Phillips 2013 **

A modern piracy adventure set in the Indian Ocean. An American cargo ship is commandeered by Somalians. The courageous outlaws with limited resources hold the ship and its crew at bay till they are overpowered by the modern might of aeroplanes, machinery and trained men, closely co-ordinated by communication devices. A tense drama which holds your attention, more so since it represents a recent real life episode.

I recommend you Danish film "A Hijacking"(2012), another good film which is also about a hostage situation involved with Somali pirates. Its pace is slower, but it is also intense in its own way.

The Somalian pirate certainly sticks in the memory
