Film of the year 2013: Captain Phillips

So 2013 another good year for film. However one above all stayed with me and it is with great admiration that I award the excellent Captain Phillips film of the year 2013.

If you haven’t managed to see this great piece of film making please ensure it is one of the first things you rent or watch on demand in 2014. Tom Hanks gives a great performance as the captain of the hijacked vessel and in the final act……well that would be spoiling but those who have seen it know what I am eluding to.

The tension created is a credit not only to the actors involved but also to director Paul Greengrass and at the films end I hardly a finger nails left and at one point was literally on the edge of my seat. 

Many great films were released in 2013 but none matched the impact of Captain Phillips.
