    This movie is flawless. Superb acting by Hanks. One of the best movies i have seen in a long time and now have a problem trying to top it. I highly recommend this film if you have not seen it yet.

    I still don't know what a guy from Northern Vermont is doing on a ship in Somalia.

    It's a freighter. Hauling cars, electronics, whatever to America. It's an American ship.

    Really they were just passing by actually miles away from the coast of Africa, the Pirates had to travel many miles out to sea to intercept that Ship.

    I didn't see it yet but will watch it when it's on cable. I did have a bowl of Captain Crunch this morning though.

    A lot of the top grew probably work 60 days on then 60 days off and can live anywhere. The company will fly them to meet the ship for their tour and then fly them home when done.

    And Maine Maritime Academy isn't far from VT.

    The lead Somali is ugly. Howard Stern level ugly.

    It amazes me that a ship that size, with millions of dollars worth in cargo can't carry a gun to protect themselves. And that a shitty little wooden boat, with 4 guys that weigh 80lbs each could take over a huge ship.

    Good movie. Hanks was great.

    He's just another 'flatlander', as we call them in VT.

    Phillips was born in Winchester, Massachusetts,[3] and graduated from Winchester High School in 1973.[4] Phillips enrolled at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and planned to study international law but transferred to the Massachusetts Maritime Academy, from which he graduated in 1979.[5] During his schooling, Phillips worked as a taxi driver in Boston.[6]
