Meh. I mean, I didn't not like it, but by and large it just wasn't as good as I was expecting. Also didn't think the vaunted performances of Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi were anything special until the third act after they get into the lifeboat. The whole lifeboat sequence was pretty solid, however.
The film also truncated the job the SEALs did, I felt story's detriment; those snipers were in position on the fantail of the Bainbridge for close to three days, laying there just waiting for 'three green'. Granted, I don't suppose that's really filmable in a dramatically satisfying way, but they made it seem like the SEALs show up and go to the back of the boat and shoot the pirates in the head. In that context, I guess they're distilling the story down to its essence - Merchant Marine captain kidnapped, endures rough handling by his captors.

It's a movie with one good scene and a lot of suck.
