What to know

critics consensus

The admirably old-fashioned In the Heart of the Sea boasts thoughtful storytelling to match its visual panache, even if it can't claim the depth or epic sweep to which it so clearly aspires. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

In 1820, crewmen (Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy) aboard the New England vessel Essex face a harrowing battle for survival when a whale of mammoth size and strength attacks with force, crippling their ship and leaving them adrift in the ocean. Pushed to their limits and facing storms, starvation, panic and despair, the survivors must resort to the unthinkable to stay alive. Their incredible tale ultimately inspires author Herman Melville to write "Moby-Dick."

Audience Reviews for In the Heart of the Sea

    As epic as this film wishes it was, nothing actually happens of note..

    It's a really good movie. It had a good storyline with good actors. It had a lot of excitement - it kept you engaged. It's a heartwarming movie that kept you engaged and hoping that the first mate and the boy would survive but you weren't sure and the longer the movie went on the less likely it seemed that any would survive. You knew that the boy survived, because an older version of him is telling the story but you didn't know who, if anybody else, survived. It showed how perilous times could make man do whatever was necessary to survive. It also showed how people from two different classes could form a bond based on truth.

    Really good story and acting. Don't understand why the reviews for this are so mediocre. This is a solid film.
