Captain Phillips mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Captain Phillips is telling members of the Navy that he is in Seat 15, a Naval CPO writes the words "Seat 15" below "Captain Phillips" on the board. A scene or two later, the words "Seat 15" are to the right of "CAPT PHILLIPS." Also, "Captain Phillips" is now "CAPT PHILLIPS." (01:28:05 - 01:49:45)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, the scene where Captain Phillips and wife are in a car driving to the airport, Catherine Keener's hair changes back and forth between shots. The left side of her hair is swept back in a clip or comb. In some shots all the hair on her left is swept back, and in other shots there are loose curls hanging down. Flips several times.

Captain Richard Phillips: Listen up, we have been boarded by armed pirates. If they find you, remember, you know this ship, they don't. Stick together and we'll be all right. Good luck.

More quotes from Captain Phillips

Question: Why did the U.S. Navy intend on killing the pirates? Why not just give the pirates their money in exchange for getting Phillips back, and let the pirates go back to Somalia?

Answer: If they pay the pirates, it encourages more to try the same thing. By shooting them it would discourage anyone else from attempting to use a hostage to extort money.
