Product Description

From the Studio

En avril 2009, le navire MV Maersk Alabama se trouve en haute mer pour livrer sa marchandise. Ce périple n'inquiète guère le capitaine Richard Phillips qui a des années d'expérience derrière la cravate. Au large des côtes somaliennes, les eaux sont cependant troubles. Des pirates pauvres et désespérés sont prêts à tout pour s'en mettre plein les poches. Pris d'assaut par ces forbans qui ont réussi à monter à bord de son bateau, le capitaine Phillips fait l'impossible pour protéger son équipage. Il est même prêt à se sacrifier si la situation l'exige.

VIDEO:

Captain Phillips arrives on blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 2.35:1 encode, mastered in “4K”. The transfer is pristine with exceptional contrast and clarity, marvelous depth of field, and razor sharp close-ups, that make Captain Phillips a thrilling visual experience. Facial features reveal every bruise, bead of sweat, natural line, and hair. Worn edges around the ship, weathering, imperfections in paint, beaten and well-used firearms all look marvelous. The colour palette springs to life in every daytime exterior. The blue of the sky and ocean water, the bold orange of the life vessel, and Hanks' light turquoise shirt all exude a wonderful vibrancy. Black colour is deep and rich. This is an immaculate, film-quality presentation. (5/5)

AUDIO:

Captain Phillips’ DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio lossless soundtrack springs to life with both incredible power and environmental nuance alike. The film's earlier scenes enjoy the calm sound of passing traffic en route to the airport. Convincingly light ambience supports Phillips' arrival in the Middle East. Out on the water, the little detailed effects of waves, wind, and small background elements on the bridge place the listening audience in the ship's central location. The pirate attacks enjoy tremendous sonic intensity, built around heavy splashing water, hard-pushing engines, and big, powerful music. When the lifeboat launches into the water you can feel the impact. When the pirates fire their AK-47s, the crisp rat-a-tat-tats make you jump. Amazingly, dialogue is perfectly prioritized; not a single word is lost and each line is crystal clear. This soundtrack deservedly is nominated for 2 Oscars: Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing.

Format: Blu-ray
About four years ago an American freight ship was hijacked off the coast of Somalia, pirates attempted to extort a ridiculous ransom, the US government directed a rescue mission involving Navy seals, recovered the ship, and killed the pirates.

Except that is not exactly what happened, and we now have a gripping movie telling the true story of what happened to Captain Phillips.

Tom Hanks excels as the Captain, dealing with these sometimes hysterical, often irrational pirates who make unrealistic demands for money, and persist in their demands to the point of folly, with the only weapons at his disposal, his wits.

If any pirate should dare to watch this movie, they will learn a very cautionary tale about messing with American ships in International waters, and more importantly messing with the military might of the American government.

What amazed me in watching this movie was how little defense there was of the freighter given the prevalence of piracy incidents around Somalia, that enabled a large freighter ship to be taken over by only four pirates. How four pirates were able to actually to get this ship is a wonder to behold. If enhanced defensive measures were available perhaps these events could have been avoided.

There is no Captain Jack Sparrow, no peg legs, no pieces of eight, or bottles of rum in this movie. What we have instead is the gritty reality of piracy, and pirates, and the sense that human life has no value to them.

What I like about Captain Phillips, is that he is in his element, and in control of his ship. The pirates are never able to get control, because the crew is dispersed and hidden, and without arms yet able to resourcefully counter the pirates attempts.

For the longest time now, Tom Hanks has been considered one of the best American actors living today. He has starred in countless movies, won two Oscars, and is a beloved figure in the film industry. In his new movie "Captain Phillips," he proves his acting ability in ways you cannot imagine.

The film centers around the true story of Captain Richard Phillips and the 2009 hijacking by Somali pirates of the USflagged MV Maersk Alabama. It focuses on the relationship between Phillips and the Somali pirate captain, Muse, who takes him hostage. One hundred forty-five miles off the Somali coast, both men will find themselves at the mercy of forces beyond their control.

With pacing that will keep you on the edge of your seat at every moment, and characters that deeply tap into your emotions, this is one of the best thrillers in recent years. Tom Hanks delivers a heart-wrenching performance, and you feel for him in every scene. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences and some violence, "Captain Phillips" is a superb film that deserves all the Oscar buzz it's getting.

WOW, remarkable story and really terrific acting by all to take an audience INSIDE a true event showing every detail. I could feel tingles up my spine as if I was there and in the same jeopardy. Absolute immersion into real experience. I loved the nurse/medic at the end and thought how realistic she was until i learned she was a real nurse just doing what she does. I have a new respect for the Merchant Marine. Truck drivers of the oceans. Hard and dangerous work requiring many skills. A good wake up call about things we take for granted. I expect that merchant ships travelling in dangerous waters will soon carry a team of armed sea marshalls so to avoid this happening again.
