Captain Phillips

 (2013)

Captain Phillips Blu-ray delivers stunning video and reference-quality audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The Maersk Alabama became the first US cargo ship to be hijacked in 200 years when heavily armed Somalis boarded the vessel on the 8th of April 2009. As commander of the ship, Captain Richard Phillips inevitably found himself at the heart of events. Held hostage by the pirates under the command of Muse, Phillips attempts to protect both his crew and ship to the best of his ability. However, as the drama plays out and Phillips spends more time in the company of his Somali captors, he gradually comes to realise that they have a story, too. Far from the greedy, heartless thugs of pirate lore, the Somalis may well represent the forces of globalisation. Based on the real life hijacking of a US cargo ship by Somali pirates.

Captain Phillips Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Captain Phillips looks terrific on Blu-ray. Sony's latest "mastered in 4K" presentation excels throughout, delivering sparkling colors and refined details throughout. The color palette springs to life in every daytime exterior. Ocean shots are particularly gorgeous, displaying crystal-clear waters with lifelike accuracy. Additionally, the colors seen around the ship's hull and its cargo containers look terrific, as does the orange lifeboat that's prominently seen in the film's second half. Fine detailing and big, basic textures alike look terrific, too. Facial features reveal every bruise, bead of sweat, natural line, and hair there is to see. Worn edges around the ship, weathering, imperfections in paint, beaten and well-used firearms, and all variety of nuanced background elements look marvelous, too. Image clarity is generally outstanding. The image does appear to struggle a bit in its darkest scenes. Blacks can push ever-so-slightly towards an unnaturally bright shade, and darker scenes, particularly down in the Alabama's powered-down and low-light engine room, display large amounts of buzzing grain. Otherwise, this is an immaculate, film-quality presentation.


Captain Phillips Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Captain Phillips' soundtrack dazzles. Sony's DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 lossless soundtrack springs to life with both incredible power and environmental nuance alike. The film's earlier scenes enjoy the calm sound of passing traffic en route to the airport. Convincingly light ambience supports Phillips' arrival in the Middle East. Out on the water, the little detailed effects of waves, wind, and small background elements on the bridge place the listening audience in the ship's central location. The pirate attacks enjoy tremendous sonic intensity, built around heavy splashing water, hard-pushing engines, and big, powerful music. The water saturates the stage and the music pushes through with natural power and precision, both filling the listening area and helping define what are amongst the film's most heart-pounding sequences. Gunfire erupts with striking accuracy, presenting a strong crack into the listening area and following up, occasionally, with the sound of 7.62x39 rounds slamming into the Alabama's hull. Radio chatter and loudspeaker announcements come through authentically, with a bit of static and reverberation, respectively. The Navy's big horn belches out a deep, room-shaking announcement, followed by a whirring alarm in chapter 11. Dialogue plays consistently and evenly from the center. This is a wonderful, reference-quality presentation that fans of the film and audiophiles like will adore.
