Not great but not terrible - simply average. For me, 'The Perfect Storm' fails to hit the right notes. I was not aware of the events that this film is based upon, so to that degree the ending did surprise me. However, up until that point it's a film that takes itself too seriously. That's purely in regards to the plot, which is manufactured and not linked much to the real life disaster. From the first scene it throws so many character motivations at you that it's hard to find time to actually feel connected to them. I personally didn't get attached to any of the characters in this. That's despite a terrific cast. George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, John C. Reilly and William Fichtner all give good performances, even in the midst of my aforementioned critiques. My issues lie strictly with the way this is written and portrayed, they could've done a much better job in my opinion.

Surprisingly good and very moving flick based upon a true story. Although it's not a lot happening, this movie succeeds in gripping the audience's attention...

I was a bit surprised about the low rating because I remembered this as a good movie. However, while I certainly think that the events on which this movie is based are tragic, the movie itself is a cliche put onto film. And that's probably the books fault on which this is based on. The way the story unfolds is cliched. I'm sure there is a lot of creative freedom involved here. I doubt even half of it is true. The characters are cliched in their depiction. They just don't feel real. Which lessens the impact of their deaths. The dialogue is cheesy to the point of being cringy. Some of it could have come out of some telenovela. The 20 year old SFX didn't bother me, though. But with all the rest I can't go higher then "6". And that's more of a high "5" if I'm honest.

I recently watched this for the second time, many years after my initial viewing. I confess I didn't always give it my full attention, not just because I had seen it once but also because the plot isn't very subtle, and careful viewing isn't necessary. The dialogue is realistic and well done, but th More

The Perfect Storm, I just love it so much.

"The fog's just lifting, you throw off your bow line, you throw off your stern-you head out to South Chanel past Rocky Neck...Ten Pound Island, past Niles Pond where I skated as a kid-and you blow your air horn and throw a wave to the lighthouse keepers More
