There is certainly that sense of adventure into the unknown, and Hemsworth once again reminds us he's a movie star.
April 18, 2019
It ends up just feeling really bland and boring and slow.
April 17, 2019
In the Heart of the Sea doesn't break new ground, but it's relatively diverting. There's satisfaction in watching newer British talent...
April 8, 2019
Despite the best efforts of the filmmakers, In the Heart of the Sea is a few knots away from being the transformative cinema experience intended.

Howard wants his film to be so much more than a mere battle between men and a giant fish, and, at times, you can feel him getting that across. Unfortunately, the characters and sense of danger are too watered down.

Ron Howard handles this tale like a true master and his cast functions to perfection. [Full Review in Spanish]
December 7, 2018
In the Heart of the Sea's overlapping themes and one-dimensional characters feel conspicuously flimsy, especially against the film's vivid realism and attention to graphic detail.
October 10, 2018
The film could have been more, given the talent involved, but tough it is to control a ship with a poorly-designed rudder.
August 23, 2018
If you can make it through those initially unpromising waters, Howard ends up delivering a fairly fantastic voyage.
August 22, 2018
Harnessing the ability to portray the brutality of the sea and nature, accompanied by engaging performances from the entire cast, make this film one not to be missed.
August 21, 2018
The two principle actors embody their roles well but the problem is not much happens after, wait for it have I said too much, the sinking of the ship.
March 6, 2018
There's something classic about In the Heart of the Sea, a rollicking, true-ish tale of adventure from director Ron Howard.
December 4, 2017
At least Chris Hemsworth is great
October 26, 2017
I loved the story -- a proper old-fashioned seafaring yarn.

It's too bad-in the right, Herzogian hands, this could have been one of the great Man vs. Nature epics in cinema. Instead it's a boring, lame Moby Dick spin-off.
September 21, 2017
Director Ron Howard tries to cram in too much material, resulting in bite-sized exposition.
September 12, 2017
There are moments that drag like a fouled anchor, when Howard's Hollywood sensibility gets a little schmaltzy-swelling music, philosophical points driven home with harpoon-like subtlety, and a bracketing story that interrupts more often than it informs
August 1, 2017
I was pretty satisfied by the movie. Unfortunately, most theater-goers will probably be left wanting more.
June 12, 2017
It is a magnificent, treacherous look into the past of the relationship between man and beast.
February 24, 2017
In the Heart of the Sea is an all-around disappointment. The film suffers from poor direction, an unfocused narrative, and some very underdeveloped characters.
