Critic Reviews for The Mercy
It all seems doomed from the start-and never in the same throat-gripping class with such fateful horrors-at-sea epics as Adrift or Robert Redford's All is Lost.
The film has been made with plenty of sincerity and no small amount of effort, but with no idea of what it wants to say.
An engrossing character study of an ordinary man whose extraordinary ambition proves his undoing.
Firth and his director find something quietly touching, even soulful, in the character's wretchedness.
Here's a man-vs.-nature sailing story with a significant difference. Rather than a rousing testament to the human spirit, James Marsh's The Mercy examines a failure to triumph, the kind of tragedy that rarely gets blown up into a movie.
