Why you should watch Tom Hanks in Greyhound

I was honestly not interested in this movie when I saw it advertised. I wondered how could a boring movie with Tom Hanks about the Navy in World War II be interesting? Well, I was dead wrong. This movie is fantastic.

Nonstop Action

Greyhound runs for an hour and a half, but it feels like it goes by in about 15 minutes. Even though I watched it on a small screen, it really captured my imagination and made me feel like I was out to sea in 1942.

Based on Truth

I don’t know about you, but I really appreciate a story that is based on reality. Some of the art on the side of the German U-boats were really interesting to me.

Our lord and master, Google, blocks anything about Nazis, so I couldn’t find an example without capturing the frame from the movie.

Looks Legit

I’m not a naval expert, but this movie looks like they did their homework. There was so much to take in that I watched it a second time and it was just as good the second run.

When was the last time he let us down? He gets to play the Captain again and gives us a very believable performance. I was glad I screen captured the big helmet sailor.
