In the mid of the journey Captain Phillips’ ship is tracked by Somali Pirates who wants to take over. The way Captain Phillips’ dodges the pirates on several occasions is amazing. After a lot of struggle the pirates succeed in taking over the ship. Captain Phillips orders all the staff to hide in the engine room of the ship while he stays in the control room.

After taking hostage the pirate leader asks about the rest of the staff location on the ship. Captain Phillips says that there is no other crew on the ship except him. So the pirate leader insists to go to each corner of the ship. So Captain Phillips escorts him all the way. As soon as they reach the engine room one of the crew member switches off the main electric power so now they cannot see anything. So the pirates become anxious as to what happened and at the same time one of the pirate also gets injured as there were some broken glass on the floor and he steps on that bare-footed.
