for making great films like the "The NeverEnding Story", "The Perfect Storm" was another great film into Mr. Peterson's resume.
The perfect storm, is based on the book written by Sebastian Unger. It's the true account of a group of fisherman who , in October 1991, died in the worst storm in the century, sacrificing their lives because they were doing their duties
and trying to put food on the table for their families.
There are many reasons I liked this movie:
1) The characters are real and genuine
2) The movie has a lot of heart, action, drama and suspense
3) The movie does have a certain mystique and aura around it, due to the fact that these are very special people whom if you met them you've probably wouldn't forget.
The cast and crew is made up of Billy Tyne
(George Clooney), captain of the Andrea Gail, Bobby Shatford (Mark Wahlberg) ,a beloved
fisherman in Gloucester, Mike "Bugsy" Moran
(John Hawkes), Dale Murphy (John C. Reilly) , David "Sully" Sullivan (William Fichtner). All these characters were loved in their community.
To feed their loved ones, the fisherman go to the Great banks to catch as many fish as possible but they don't see that a huge Hurricane named " Grace" is headed their way, a deadly storm in fact. The fisherman's boss though, Mr. McNally I believe is his name, pays them very little and makes even fishing a hassle for them. The men though still go out to see despite this because of their great love for the see.Read more ›
Now for a helpful hint, so that you can vote that this is a helpful review: If you are ever fishing and pull up a large shark; or if you are ever near someone who does, NEVER stick your foot in the shark's mouth. Really. I'm not kidding. Apparently some people don't know this...Didn't he ever see Jaws?
Me thinks that the "hunk factor" played a big part in causing this film to gross over 100 million at the box office, drawing bucks away from "The Patriot," which wasn't a great film, but still better than "The Perfect Storm." Why else would people willingly pay for a two-hour film about drowning fishermen with a tacked-on Hollywood ending? Drowning fisherman: boring; drowning George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg: dreamy!
Overall, two stars for special effects; minus three stars for being boring and poorly developed. Shame on you Clooney and Wahlberg, you made "Three Kings." "The Perfect Storm" was not a healthy follow-up.
