Directed by Wolfgang Peterson who has a career
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.

Okay, so a lot of people think George Clooney is a hunk, likewise for Mark Wahlberg--and they didn't do a bad job with what they had. But honestly, men don't usually talk this way, especially fisherman! The dialogue had no sense of reality--it sounded straight from Hollywood. Of course, had the movie spent the first half on taciturn fishermen, it would really have been a loser, but still. The dialogue at the end was troubling, where rather than casting recriminations at one another for making a foolish choice based on greed, the young guy... tells the captain they HAD to try. I was further bothered by the claim that it was based on a true story. Well, the boat actually disappeared with all hands, but pretty much everything else is speculation, and some of it fairly nonsensical. (Climbing up rigging that is slamming back and forth in a hurricane without a safety rope, but with a blowtorch ON! Yeah, sure...) Special effects are terrific, true, and lots of the action is gripping; but this movie would be much better in a large screen theatre than at home. There is a good side story about a Coast Guard rescue helicopter than I found more interesting than the main plot line. Although I enjoyed the movie, I honestly can't imagine anyone wanting to see it twice, unless they really thrill to seeing Clooney and Wahlberg getting water thrown in their faces...maybe it will help you visualise being in the shower with them. The real question about purchasing this movie is: Do you really want to spend [the] bucks for great computer-generated waves? Oh yeah, the swordfish are very convincing, too.
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?

Honestly, I had no interest in seeing this movie. I was tricked into seeing it over the 4th of July holiday; I think alcohol was involved...or money, something. Anyway, "The Giant Wave Movie" just seemed like it would never end while I was watching it. It moved at the pace of water draining from the bathtub. Really, besides the special effects, there isn't much to this movie. Poor character development, poor pacing of the story, and no surprise at the end due to two things: 1) The Weather Channel spoiled it for me with their "special report" and 2) The giant wave seen in the trailer that was played in front of every movie this summer that NO ONE could possibly survive on any kind of sea-faring vessel!
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.

The Perfect Storm began without a good showing a character develpoment. We learned about their personallities, but nothing about them as in background. One person(nameless to my knowledge) didn't even speak until somewhere out in the middle of the ocean. After starting out on the wrong foot the beginning of the adventure made up for the lack of charcter development. Now we're off into the ocean and the crew is becoming distressed for the fish are not biting.The so called fisherman are running into all sorts of problems until they reach a excellent spot and catch a huge quanity of fish. Then all of the sudden the ice machine breaks and if they don't get home soon the fish will spoil. Even though they know there is a storm right infornt of them. They decide to go on any way and eventually run into all sorts of problems. The ending (which i will not mention) was just horrrible beyond immagination. The story is going on then all of the sudden it comes to a cliff and jumps off. The Perfect Storm is a waste of time and should not be sold.
