Miss my Seabird 23....
2 news articles in NY papers where some of the crew was interviewed, stating they took ALOT of poetic license when writing this screenplay...like the other poster said...not alot of love for Capt. Phillips from his former crew........

In the book "no easy day" mark Owen talks about the situation that the Seals went thru on that one, would like to see the movie.

$30,000 missing

Our local paper had a write up on the real event. It appears $30,000 was taken out of the safe on the boat by the captain to pay off the pirates. The money was never discovered. What happened to it?

Don't know anything about the captain or crew but human nature would make me believe that the crew has a case of "but that's not how it happened".

The captain was likely made to look heroic and smart, and the crew cowardly and like rats in the bilge. It would piss me off as well but the movie will sell many more tickets this way.

I'll probably see it if the kids want to go. Same for gravity. Neither is real but both will be fun to watch.

Wow, what a movie a must see and Tom Hanks wow.

The movie doesn't make anyone out to be a coward in my opinion. He'll, even though they were a different union it reminded me of everyday life, thinking I knew the Chief even. Ha.

I had a friend talk with one of the officers onboard. He said the movie was very accurate to what happened as well as some rumors I've heard from MEBA people in the hall.

For those of us who have sailed with captains, you'd either take them or leave them and then some you'd sail into hell with. For others who haven't, its just as much as me telling you something I do not understand.

The airport scene, that didn't make me feel good. For others it was probably a conversation that didnt fit in. For me, it reminds me of the lowest point in my life I deal with every four months, it does make the return so much sweeter.

The ending, what a great job by Tom Hanks, the trauma and confusion.

So now what happens, 33 years this pirate goes back to Somalia? Oh wait, are we educating him in jail... really makes me wonder...
