Scary and sad are the main concerns here.

The thrills come in an emotional vacuum--even more problematic considering Petersen spends so much time trying to develop a human center.

An expertly crafted Hollywod entertainment...[constructed] as a series of grippingly fateful 'moments of truth.' [Blu-Ray]

The storm looks perfect, but the real danger here is the tidal wave of mediocrity and cliches.

The story could've told itself in a compelling way without invented drama.

Once the digital effects commence The Perfect Storm has all the impact of watching a friend play Nintendo.

In the end, all the audience is left with is the feeling that you're really glad not to be a fisherman.

The perfect example, of how the newest visual effects movies have the capacity to overwhelm everything -- from actors to plotlines -- except in the end, maybe, their audiences.

The movie itself is like a raging storm: impossible to ignore while it's happening but easy to forget when the weather has died down.

Those simulated waves are huge, and you can practically feel the wind and the rain pelting down.

A gripping drama that virtually bursts from the screen with lashing, kinetic power so realistic it could literally make someone seasick.

...a thrilling amusement park ride, albeit one freighted with the knowledge that nature does treat some unfortunate souls this roughly

Senti pena daqueles pescadores - não dos que estavam na tela, mas sim daqueles que inspiraram o filme. Eles, sim, merecem nossas homenagens. O resto é fantasia barata.

Not terrible, but distinctly disappointing, not nearly as engaging or thrilling as its premise seems to promise.

Think of something with the heart and soul of a Conrad yarn, yet buttressed by very special effects and shrewdly packaged for devotees of the Outdoor Living Network

The special effects, especially that awe-inspiring final wave featured on the promotional material, are truly awesome.

It's formulaic and there are cliches, but the walls of water, created by fluid dynamics simulating real-life phenomena, are awesome.

A sense of reality is essential, and it's sorely lacking.
