There is certainly that sense of adventure into the unknown, and Hemsworth once again reminds us he's a movie star.

In the Heart of the Sea doesn't break new ground, but it's relatively diverting. There's satisfaction in watching newer British talent...

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.
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.
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.

I loved the story -- a proper old-fashioned seafaring yarn.
August 1, 2017
I was pretty satisfied by the movie. Unfortunately, most theater-goers will probably be left wanting more.

It is a magnificent, treacherous look into the past of the relationship between man and beast.

Apologies for the fishing analogy, but this is Oscar bait par excellence.
June 12, 2016
It's sturdy, watchable, competently mounted, of course -- Howard is nothing if not a pro -- but except for the visuals, which can be quite stunning, it never roused me.

It's not a monster-versus-man situation here, but a depiction of how a good chunk of human history was formed by men doing their darnedest to harvest energy from nature, to serve the needs of civilization and make a living for themselves.

Alas, In the Heart of the Sea is certainly ambitious, but it never quite reaches its full potential.
May 10, 2016
The monomania that drives men to their demise, as in Moby-Dick, is touched upon here though not pursued to its darkest inevitability, and yet that doesn't stop the Ron Howard's film from being a lively, well-oiled seafaring entertainment.
April 26, 2016
In the Heart of the Sea works as a survival drama, a rip-roaring adventure and even a monster movie, but what it really accomplishes, like Interstellar, is to remind us that once upon a time, humanity was unflinching in its thirst for discovery.
April 6, 2016
The story is stolid at times, but the dynamic shots of the crew working the rigging and maintaining the boat look accurate and keep everything lively.
March 2, 2016
The screenplay goes around in circles without creating an enriching experience, the characters have no arc, and what few moments could have been dramatic end up boring and full of cliches. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 15, 2016
The whale moments are great, but outside of them, the film uses too much unnecessary CGI, which takes away a lot of the film's more real moments.
January 9, 2016
The images here lash and last; the story creaks and groans. Anthony Dod Mantle's cinematography is brilliant; it's as if we're looking back at this past through a water-sloshed spyglass, darkly. The simpler story's too rote and modern, though.
