As entertaining as Disney, the cast and crew attempt to make it, Bernie and the boys deserve more.

The credibility that the high seas scenes show helps to maintain tension. [Full Review in Spanish]

Not great, not terrible. Right in the middle.

Whilst playing things rather safe and without doing anything outside of what we expect from his film, Gillespie crafts an exhilarating ride thanks largely to huge scope for spectacle and a solid cast.

Modern techniques make the storm and ocean merciless and imposing, but the film's stars are its story and the actors portraying these real-life men and women.

Based on a heroic true story, The Finest Hours is realistically terrifying (thanks to impressive special effects and score), but also a miraculous feat that warms the heart.

Like the sea itself, [the film] is uneven and choppy at certain points, and it's at its worst when it's ashore ... Even the direction seems eager to get to the ocean.

Reminds us of a time when heroes didn't complain about the dangers of the job they signed up for but instead decided to go above and beyond what was expected.

Pine ... is in his element as the resolute rescuer. His character is heroic, but in the strong, silent kind of way. Enjoy movies about daring rescues? Go watch this.

Overall, it's wholesome, life-affirming and a terrific ringing testament to the courage these men displayed.

In a film that is one part The Caine Mutiny and one part The Perfect Storm, the depictions of both lifeboat and stricken tanker are excellent and the film does have an old-school appeal, albeit an obviously manufactured one.

Sure, it's kind of hokey and old-fashioned, but it holds together and is more engaging than not.

If you like action adventure films but just may be tired of endless fantastical superhero movies with the same basic story line, littered with explosions and death defying feats, The Finest Hours may be just the film to see.

The movie's ocean sequences are good enough to make The Finest Hours an acceptable -- if not great -- piece of January entertainment.

Not a truly great film, but a really nice one.

An entertaining film that can be inspiring at some points. [Full review in Spanish]

A rousing tale of sacrifice, ingenuity and heroism.

The Coast Guard gets its big-screen opportunity with The Finest Hours. Its great effects work well to accompany some solid performances.

If you or someone you know can reel off even one of Gene Hackman's lines from The Poseidon Adventure or Steve McQueen's from The Towering Inferno, then these two hours, while not being the finest, will pass very quickly.

The Finest Hours feels great because it is modest...This makes the film a study in humanism as well as citizenship...It is a nostalgic cultural memoir as much as an action film.
