** The leader who was captured in the engine room was held down there for twelve hours. In the film they arrange for the hostage exchange almost immediately after capturing him.

* AlasPoorVillain: The Somali pirates, especially Muse and Bilal, are shown to not have much of a choice becoming pirates. Between their ruined fishing grounds by factory ships and illegal waste dumping at sea and Somali warlords who obviously would kill them on a whim, piracy is depicted as the only way to survive. That said, their brandishing weapons and threatening crew with murder is beyond the pale and they had a chance to surrender to US forces and be jailed in America.

* OneLinerNameOneLiner: Muse's response to Phillips' suggestion that he must have another career choice: "Maybe in America, Irish, maybe in America."
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Tom Hanks does a pretty good Massachusetts accent throughout the film, but it noticeably disappears when he [[spoiler: starts screaming in panic at the climax of the film.]]

** Near the end, Captain Phillips sees a pen and begins covertly writing a letter to his family in despair...which only makes thing much more unstable when Najee catches him and flips out on him, resulting in Phillips getting hogtied and scared out of his remaining wits during the final shouting match (very nearly getting himself shot right then and there).

* ArtisticLicenseGunSafety: In-universe example. While using the life boat to escape to Somalia, one of the pirates attempts to smash open a window in order to get some air. Captain Phillips notes that the pirate is using a loaded rifle to do this. The pirate removes the clip, but does not eject a round from the chamber. Whether or not he'd chambered a round beforehand is unclear.

* SanitySlippage: Captain Philips really starts to lose his wits after the pirates re-capture him after he attempts to escape the lifeboat, and Najee attempts to strangle him to death. Then he ''really'' starts freaking out after Najee catches him writing a farewell letter and then prepares to blindfold, hogtie, and execute him. Thankfully he exposes himself to the SEAL snipers' line of sight as he holds his pistol to Philips' head.
