||A book by Captain Richard Phillips with Stephan Talty itself based on real events.
||The American container ship Maersk Alabama was taken over by Somali pirates in 2009, resulting in intervention by the US military, putting the crew in increasing danger.
||Constant tension once the ship is taken over, with increasing danger, particularly to the captain, as events progress.
||The director is a master of this sort of presentation, and maybe he could not go too far wrong since they used the real ship for the film (I don’t know how things stand now, but several of the crew had expressed an intention of taking the captain to court for ignoring piracy warnings).
