Perfect Storm, The


USA 2000, 129 minutes
Dir. Wolfgang Petersen
Rating: [M]
Genres: Action/Adventure / Adventure

Topics: Maritime.


Aroview: Fishing boat captain George Clooney gets his crew back to sea, just in time for the biggest storm in recorded history.

Dividing into two distinct parts, split by a short break for fishing, part one sets up the characters, and completely fails to inspire. Part two comprises a nightmarish extended battle between 100-foot-high waves, and the fishermen and rescue crews unlucky enough to meet them head on. Worth watching for some eye-opening computer effects, the director of DAS BOOT providing an oceanic thrill-ride of the first order.
