Just watched the movie an hour ago. Really great movie, lots of action....very realistic. Seems quite unreal to have the ship unberth without the presence of a harbour Pilot with the assistance of the Tug. The captain seem to be doing the entire unberthing of the ship from the Port.

Very decent movie! I hope we will see more pictures showing Maersk Alabama soon!
