For the sailing aficionado
29 December 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

One could argue there are better high seas movies around - the recent "All is lost" with Robert Redford comes to mind, Ridley Scott's "White squall" is another and even the grand "Master and commander" with Russel Crowe gets the nod. But in terms of cinematography, this one is a stunner. You could almost place this flick in the documentary category, considering the realism of the camera angles, the glimpse at the high-flying technology but also the nonchalant way the plot unfolds (or flattens out like a pancake). But in the end, no one gets hurt and noble values prevail for good family entertainment. For real drama at sea, try to get a hold of the 2008 "Solo-Lost at sea" doc. This one you won't want to watch with the kids...
