Azzopardi's physical demeanor effectively conveys the fisherman's confusion and desperation, but the lack of any clear narrative resolution lends scant significance to the role.
As the only man on screen, and with minimal dialogue, Joe Azzopardi commands attention from the off.
The Boat is never boring; and that is saying something for a film that includes a 30-minute sequence where the protagonist is locked in a bathroom.
[It's] a film that cleverly turns some of the film's elements, like water and the ship itself, into a ferocious monster that forces our protagonist to exhibit some quick thinking in order to survive his unbelievable experiences upon a sea-faring vehicle.
The film is solid, but it feels resigned to the limitations of its premise rather than actively pushing against its boundaries. Is there anything inherently wrong with that? Not really. Does it make for a safer, more boring film as a result? Undoubtedly.
Ranks easily among the year's best horror films, best adventure films, and best films period. Welcome aboard indeed.
