Critic Reviews for Mad Ship

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Alas, not unlike the boat on which the tale is based, it's a jerry-built craft that never really gets launched.

Director David Mortin loses us with this beautifully shot, if relentlessly depressing, story.

At times, Mad Ship is mesmerizing. And at other times, it's maddening because Mortin creates so much allure through texture and character, we begin to expect a better payoff.

There are many other fine moments of cinematic poetry, if only Marshall could be more consistent with them.

Audience Reviews for Mad Ship

Madship is like a crossbreed between a Steinbeck novel, all the covers from every Beverly Lewis book and a period drama playing on the History Channel. If it had a bigger budget I imagine the bank worker would be Kevin Spacey.
