I admit that one of the reasons why I saw the Captain Phillips movie had to do with the fact that I happened to still be in the navy (stationed in Norfolk Virginia) when the incident surrounding the MV Maerks Alabama occurred, and as with millions of others I heard of the story (that this movie is based on) through the news media. The Captain Phillips movie opens with Captain Richard Phillips himself (Tom Hanks) and his wife Andrea Phillips (Andrea Keener) getting ready for work in Underhill Vermont and leaving around the same time as they discuss various matters surrounding what is going on in their life. The movie also shows the area (Eyl Somalia) where the pirates such as Abduwali Muse (Barkhad Abdi)and Nour Najee (Faysal Ahmed) gathered. The Captain Phillips movie showed that even before MV Maersk Alabama disembarked from the Salalah Port Oman that Captain Phillips himself wanted many of the entrances to the ship closed the night before it went underway at sea. Before the pirates embarked the ship Captain Phillips and his crew initially tried calling U.S. Maritime Emergency but nobody picked up. However, they then called the Martime Trade Operations in Dubai and then got ahold of the U.S. Maritime Emergency line (In Northwood UK) the next day. The movie also has references to USS Bainbridge, USS Halyburton, and men from a Seal Staging base in Virginia that were all necessary to dispatch to deal with what happened. The situation was extremely serious to the point where communications between Admiral Michelle Howard and one of the ship’s commanding officers was orchestrated in a way to carry out a plan that was necessary to help prevent Captain Phillips from reaching the shores of his capturers. A medical professional by the last name of O’Brien was seen treating Captain Phillips during the movie and towards the end the following information is listed; Richard Phillips returned to Vermont on April 17, 2009 and was reunited with his family. Abduwali Muse was convicted of piracy and is currently serving 33 years at the Federal Correctional Complex in Terre Haute Indiana.
