Movie Info

With his perfect family and perfect upbringing, Richard (Christopher Gray) appears to have it all. So when he thinks that his long-term girlfriend, Sasha (Emily Tyra), and best-friend, Jonah (Munro Chambers), are having an affair, it sends him into a fit of rage that leaves Jonah a bloody mess. Once Jonah and Sasha convince Richard the allegations are false, Richard tries to buy back their trust by taking them out for a day-trip on his family's yacht. Tension boils-over once out to sea, and, to make matters worse, the yacht's engine fails. Stranded without food and supplies, the trio must set aside their differences in order to survive. One part post-modern Edgar Allan Poe adaptation, one part Knife in the Water with the cast of Seinfeld, Harpoon is a wickedly humorous and bloody deconstruction of friendship and love.

  • Harpoon centers on a boat but leaves us emotionally, intellectually, aesthetically parched. If only it were funny.

  • The tension and gore tends to steamroll this concern and make it work regardless.

  • Like a wound that's infected and beginning to rot, so, too, do the friendships at the center of Harpoon. Unlike most arguments, though, this isn't going to be settled with just some heated words. The movie's not called Harpoon for nothing.

  • Dark, disgusting comedies can easily fail if they're tonally off, even by a smidge. Harpoon doesn't miss a note.

    Apr 23, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The increasingly preposterous plot twists might have been an issue, but, as the dripping sarcasm in the narration is at pains to stress, this is not a film which takes itself remotely seriously.
