Watch only if you've got some brains to follow along.

I enjoyed Pirates of Somalia far more than I thought I would. Evan Peters is credible and very watchable. The supporting cast is strong enough to keep you interested in a well-told story. I wasn't as informed about the piracy situation in Somalia. I'd wager that bunches of Westerners aren't, either. However, this film does a great job of laying out the recent Somali history, while also telling a compelling "true" story. I'd recommended Pirates of Somalia, but only to someone who can handle a human drama with some political history, good characters, and touches of humor. This film is not for the blissfully uninformed. You'll learn something. And you'll like it, too.

Great!

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 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.

A very well made movie

Apart from the two poster names, which came off as quite cheezy, this movie was incredibly well made and the acting was great from all included. And in the middle of it all it managed to be funny also. Not bad.

Every action has a reaktion.
