Tom Hanks has received rave reviews for his performance! You feel like you are there with the Capt at the ending. That was an outstanding performance. The movie was based on a true story and it's amazing that this activity is still very active. He showed great leadership and took care of his men. The Navy is bad a**! I wanted to jump through the screen and punch the other guy saying "it will be ok"...so it definitely gave me that emotion. Definitely a film to see! Everyone in Hollywood says this is a must see as well. Plus, who doesn't love Tom Hanks.
