The strong point of this film is its spectacular imagery. The weak point (which for me tips the balance)... is its nave, posturing Marxist commentary and insistence on its own profundity.

The filmmakers more or less show us in The Forgotten Space how the sea is capitalism's global trading floor writ large.
