If you enjoy modern piracy films, watch Captain Phillips online. Captain Phillips is based on a true event, which happened along the East African coast. The event marked the first time in two centuries that a cargo ship flying an American flag had been hijacked. The film revolves around Richard Phillips, who was in command of MV Maersk Alabama, which was on its way to the Kenyan port of Mombasa when they encountered pirates.

Ironically the ambush from the pirates coincided with security drills the crew on the ship had been performing since they were aware they were on dangerous pirate-infested waters.

Action starts when the pirates arrive in two skiffs and they start chasing after the ship. Aware that the pirates have equipment that can intercept messages and listen in, Phillips cleverly pretends to summon the help of a warship. This forces one of the skiffs to turn back thinking there’s an actual warship coming after them and which they need to ward off. The other skiff under the command of Muse does not manage to catch up with the cargo ship owing to loss of engine power.

Muse’s skiff makes a return the following day having been repaired and now possessing two engines. This time round Muse and the other pirates manage to climb aboard the cargo ship. Phillips orders his crew to take cover in the ship’s engine room and gives himself up for capture. Phillips is willing to give Muse 30,000 dollars, but Muse won’t take it because orders are that he holds the crew and ship at ransom and fetch millions. Who will prevail?
