Maersk Line Ltd issued a statement saying it believes the U.S.-flagged Maersk Alabama was hijacked. The vessel was en route to Mombasa, Kenya, when it was attacked about 310 miles off Somalia’s coast. U.S. government sources said the ship was attacked about 7:30 a.m., and the closest U.S. Navy warship was about 300 nautical miles away. There has been no action taken against the pirates, even with a task force present in the region, the area is too large to monitor all the time. Pirates are gangsta.

Nothing short of a classic! This move is about Bruce Willis going back in time to stop a virus that kills five billion people in 1996 and 97 forcing survivors to live underground. In the future there is Time Travel but its not precise at all, sometimes the traveler may end up close to the year they are trying to get to but at times its off by the span of 100 years. Brad Pitt plays a phenomenal role as a psycho in the loony bin who aids Bruce. Time waits for no man and in this outstanding film from Terry Gilliam, he makes you understand that. The overall theme is dark and gritty making the future seem bleak yet tangible. This movie is classic pick the DVD up pronto!
