Reviewer Rating Review
Bryan Lienesch74 - A survival tale unlike any other. The only main drawback here is how heavy it relies on action CGI visuals that border on the ludicrous. Especially for a film set in the early 1950's.

Sober Film Critic James Brown61 - Showcasing the awesome power of Mother Nature is essential to establish the dangerous setting of the film, but it's only going to take the narrative so far. Instead of focusing on the emotional tale of heroism, the crafty maneuvers the seamen of the SS Pendleton employed to survive, or the emotional love story at hand, Gillespie goes for the big budget moments showcasing the deadly storm.
