i don't think i've seen this yet and it will take forever using flixster's awful downloading program. I have finally downloaded and watched it, review to follow:
The Perfect Storm stars George Clooney, Mark Wahlberg, Diane Lane, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Karen Allen, and is the story, based on a true account, of fishermen who get caught with others in a threefold storm and do not survive though others do.
The action and disaster scenes are overwhelming and the film is brought back to watchability and relatability through the human moments especially the powerful scene of Diane's grieving wife who slaps the callous fishboat/processing tycoon who is delivering bad news to loved ones and family of the crew. 4/10
