This is going to be a strange comment, but there goes. I loved the story, and I thought the acting pretty great too. I didn't feel like there were lower keys from any of the cast, and it's really nice when everyone is even and giving great performances. But I did have a problem with the visuals of the movie. It was so perfect, so pretty, the light was just so artistic, that I found it took from the drama they were trying to display. It was just really off, how everything looked so beautiful while everyone was suffering, in pain, hungry, thirsty, afraid. In the end, as hard as I tried focusing on the performance, the background kept reminding me of how unreal the whole thing was. It was distracting and ultimately, disappointing. I felt the experience could have been much better if the visuals were just a little more somber.

I liked the movie but why did they use a green tint? Very strange.

I wouldn't get too excited for the movie. It isn't what is advertised as (at least that's my reaction after watching it). The whale isn't really the plot of the movie. It's more about the hard way of living of the whalers, the trouble they had surviving, etc. 2/3s of the movie were kinda boring to me. The actors did fine but the characters they portrait don't have too much to care for. Overall it was pretty disappointing to me.

"Experience the true encounter that inspired the myth Moby Dick" A voyage into the historical tragedy that was and to some extent remains 'Whaling'. It's horrendous to think this happened and even worse to think it still does today; sickening. Personally, I cheered for the white Whale, I had no feelings of sorrow in regards the crew, whatever happens they deserved it... so be it!

I recently watched "The Revenant", another Man vs. Nature film also set in the 1820s. If that film and "In The Heart Of The Sea" have showed me anything it's that I'm thrilled that I didn't have to live during that period of time. Both films do a very good job of highlighting Man's helplessness ag More

This movie never really grabbed me. I was impressed by I guess what real critics call the cinematography. Some of the scenes of the action on the ship and the ocean vistas, were realistic and placed me there in the same way I felt like I was there. With Master and Commander.

The plot was adequate More

"Look where we find ourselves. What offense did we give God to upset him so".


So I've just seen In the Heart of the Sea and it very disappointing. It was one of my most anticipated movie of December right next to Star wars, The Revenant and The Hateful Eight, but sadly it didn't More

> We actually know this story, but not the truth until now!

Ron Howard's latest sea adventure, stars Chris Hemsworth in an important role. So the people comparing it with 'Moby Dick', because both the film is about the same story, but one was inspired and the other one was, I mean this film was b More
