I expected it to feel too long, but I found it very much better than I thought it would be ! (Kev's PICkS: At the NYPL there is now a line of almost 500 people waiting to see 'Captain Phillips'. But for 'Stolen Seas' there's no waiting at all ! ,.. and the hijacked ship and its crew in Stolen Seas is seen being held for ransom in real life ! This documentary is not just an entertainment that is... 'based on a true story'.) (4-14-14: 0 ; 4-16: 4 ;4-18: 8)
