Howard's film is predictable, yet that's not to say it's not enjoyable. If you can get past Hemsworth's mish-mash of an accent (part New England local, part booming Thunder God), there are plenty of impressive turns to be seen.

A beautifully crafted yarn that places you right on the rolling decks of the whaling ship Essex as it sails into very stormy waters and encounters a nemesis in the form of a monster-sized sperm whale.

The acting in the film is solid, as is the cinematography. The scenes of the whalers fighting the white whale are spectacular, the best I've seen in this kind of movie. It is a solid, interesting story, well told by director Ron Howard.

It's the superbly marshalled action sequences - the watery beast is superbly rendered and sea-sickness will be an unwelcome affliction for some viewers - that the film will be remembered for ...

In the Heart of the Sea becomes a much better film when nobody is talking - or when everybody is yelling at once.
December 23, 2015
Howard seems caught in some no-man's land between the poetic force of Melville's novel and the discursive academic approach of Philbrick.
December 23, 2015
It's a Hollywood movie in the best sense, unsparing with spectacle, a-roar with conviction and cast, if not with superstars, then with voices and faces that become indelible.
December 21, 2015
In the Heart of the Sea is watchable enough. It just doesn't harpoon us the way its maker intended.
December 21, 2015
With a huge budget and a relatively small story, this is an intriguingly offbeat blockbuster that might struggle to find an audience.

Ron Howard's latest is grim but see-worthy.
December 17, 2015
This is a film deserving of an audience, even if it's far from flawless.

Howard is a director who believes in strong, primary-colour storytelling, with plenty of uncomplicated emotion. Yet this story is oddly more subtle than you might think ...

... filled with tension, fine acting, and eye-popping cinematography...Even better, though, it captures the brutality of whaling, that still goes on today courtesy of the cold-hearted Japanese...While watching this movie, I was rooting for the whale.

A harrowing sea-faring adventure of a great white whale who refuses to become the victim of the oil business.
December 14, 2015
Director Ron Howard has created a maritime redux of his other explorers' epic, Apollo 13; both of the films are about men at the mercy of technologies that help them traverse dangerous places.

A whale of a time (when the whale's in it).
