    It's like a memorial service with killer special effects.

    It is a shame how this movie turns a real nightmare into a dull Hollywood spectacle full of visual effects but with little characterIt is a shame how this movie turns a real nightmare into a dull Hollywood spectacle full of visual effects but with little character development, and it even makes the biggest mistake of showing more people caught in the storm instead of only focusing on the crew of the Andrea Gail.

    The Perfect Storm is a an overlong, pointless washout that never connects with us emotionally. It takes forever to get going, and each sceneThe Perfect Storm is a an overlong, pointless washout that never connects with us emotionally.

It may have great special effects, but they're wasted in this movie. Full Review »

    Hollywood did it again, what a crap movie. the most irritating thing about this movie was the bloody music.
    so in appropriate! I literally had to stop watching this crap. Now I know why I watch foreign film and arthouse cinema. Hollywood never did it for me. Occasionally a good one comes out but it certainly AINT this one.
