The Perfect Storm (2000)
Critic Consensus: While the special effects are well done and quite impressive, this film suffers from any actual drama or characterization. The end result is a film that offers nifty eye-candy and nothing else.

News & Interviews for The Perfect Storm
Critic Reviews for The Perfect Storm
Think of something with the heart and soul of a Conrad yarn, yet buttressed by very special effects and shrewdly packaged for devotees of the Outdoor Living Network
A sense of reality is essential, and it's sorely lacking.
For once, we have a film in which the FX guys dominate and yet, human truth and drama shine through.
This movie is capable of hitting you with gale force.
Audience Reviews for The Perfect Storm
It is a shame how this movie turns a real nightmare into a dull Hollywood spectacle full of visual effects but with little character development, and it even makes the biggest mistake of showing more people caught in the storm instead of only focusing on the crew of the Andrea Gail.
First, there's all dese Hollywood types gettin' dere New England accents a workout, and dat ain't too bad none, nosirree, but the real star here is the CG generated storm that decently conveys the immensity of the sea and just how small we are in it. Not too shabby.
A movie that leads to nothing and you leave the theatre feeling crappy for seeing it. Its depressing, it leads to no conclusion, and i'm glad The Simpsons were bold enough to make fun of this crap. I never felt intense when watching it, and even with a all star cast it has nothing great about. Only reason I gave it a 1.5 is because the acting was decent. this film is not worth it.
