The Perfect Storm is movie based on a true story, about a skipper (captain) and his crew of a sword fishing boat going out and fishing in one of the worst storms to hit New England. The crew goes through trials of will and character when many things go wrong on the boat throughout the trip. The movie is based off a true story that actually happened about a boat that was lost to a freak accident of nature creating what meteorologists call the perfects storm.

[Anonymous]7THe FX deliver, but the drama is cut-rate, and the characters don't really have all that depth. Some fo the stunts are impressive though, particularly Cloony cutting an anchor loose int eh midst of the storm. In the end, though, it achieves a slight ting of resonance, and the first rate musical score is pleasant.… Expand
3This is amongst one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I only gave it a 3 because the waves looked good in 2000. It's doesn't seem to go anywhere and the movie made no effort of making me want to care about the crew. The only up side to this movie is that it is not a bad as Miami Vice (Movie).… Expand
