Hollywood Movies Based on Real Life

by Admin
Movies are deemed as an escapade from our daily hustle and bustle, even if it lasts for a few hours. However, a fantastical ride is not what we seek all the time, right? There's a separate fan-base, who worship movies that are based on real accounts, true stories, and real people. If you're not part of that cult (why not?), you'd still enjoy a casual watch that's based on real incidents, the sheer thrill or suspense might just get to you. So, sit back, and watch these Hollywood Movies Based on Real Life!

The movie is a depiction of the 2009 hijacking of the US Container Ship, Maersk Alabama by Somali pirates. Captain Phillips is the commanding officer of the cargo ship when the ship is forcefully boarded by Somali pirates who plan to ransom the ship and crew in exchange of millions of dollars of ship insurance money. When plans go wrong, they steal the $30,000 stored in the safe and leave the ship in a lifeboat. But while leaving, they take Captain Phillips as hostage. This decision leads to a stand-off between US Navy and the Somali Pirates. The US Navy would rather shoot the lifeboat and prevent it from reaching Somania than to safe Philips.
