My Review: The ocean is a scary place!
It is surprising that this is a Disney movie. The movie is based on a true story of the rescue mission of two oil tankers that was destroyed at sea during a very bad blizzard in the 1952. The movie has a very slow beginning as it introduces the characters before any of the action starts.
The storyline is very emotional and the action was nerve wrecking. It reminds you of how small and powerless we are compared to the vast ocean. The story focuses on two stories, the ship crews and the coast guards. The movie shows the dedication of the coast guards to rescue the victims of the tankers and the perseverance of the tanker crews to buy time for the rescue to arrive.
The movie has very few experienced actors but still provide the a powerful emotional roller coaster. This movie definitely honors the coast guards involved in the actual rescue mission in 1952. This movie will remind everyone how much sacrifice our fellow soldiers and public servants gives to ensure we get to live a better tomorrow
The movie may not be the most awaited movie of the year, but it is a good movie nonetheless. I suggest those with cash to spare and are bored to go and watch this movie.
