The latest true-life thriller from director Paul Greengrass – and most recent bit of evidence that Tom Hanks is an acting god – reduced Nick and I to simpering messes – and that’s after taking a few years off our lives with insane tension. I felt that Captain Phillips brought it all to the table , from deft directing, great scripting and truly awards worthy performances from several cast members – Hanks is probably a shoe-in for an Oscar, with debuting co-star Barkhad Abdi not far behind – and is easily one of my top 3 films of the year.

But what did you guys think? Did Captain Phillips sink or swim? As always, this is for people who have seen the movie, so BEWARE SPOILERS if you haven’t!
