In 2008, rookie journalist Jay Bahadur forms a half-baked plan to embed himself among the pirates of Somalia. He ultimately succeeds in providing the first close-up look into who these men are, how they live, and the forces that drive them.
This was one of the most entertaining movies I’ve seen all year. A compelling retelling of a great story, with a refreshing approach to movie-making and an awesome cast, and some very memorable characters. Underlying all of that was a credible presentation of some very important real life issues, which didn’t come across as being overbearing or politically driven.
The bottom line for me is that is was a enjoyable, well made movie about a good story.
