Greengrass can create and maintain tension better than virtually any other current director, especially when he's working off real events. True to form, this is edge of your seat stuff from start to finish, even if you know the ending already. It's helped by brilliant performances from Hanks and all the other players, as well as a surprisingly nuanced script that presents both sides of the story without becoming overly preachy. The film would have been tighter if it was 15 minutes shorter, but it's a minor complaint when there isn't really a dull moment. If you can stomach the shaky cam then this is a must see.
Tom Hanks' performance in the last few minutes of the movie made the whole movie worth watching. I enjoyed the film, not saying it was amazing or even Oscar worthy. Yet, it was a great story, felt real, no over exaggerations for the action sequences (which I loved). Enjoyable, yes. Phenomenal and deserving a nomination for best picture? Debatable.
A HIJACKING was way better.
