Awesome action adventure love story based on a true story. LOVED it!

I love movies that are based on true stories.

1952: a sinking tanker broken in half with 32 men aboard during a vicious winter storm, a small rescue boat with only room for 12 trying to reach them against all odds: ways better than any mission impossibles and it's all true: check out the final credits. SFX a bit unreal but hey, this is Disney!

I'm a sucker for a story about true heroics. I liked this movie. I thought it was well made, good acting, harrowing and shiver me timbers cold. Though it is another example of glad I didn't spend the bucks seeing it on the big screen. I like an epic for that.

A good movie

A bunch of people who repeat lines until they get them correct try to mimic East Coast accents whilst pretending to be in love, trapped on a sinking ship, & saving victims on said sinking ship. Some of the action scenes are well-made, but this film does nothing more than educate us about a rescue that actually took place & it labours the point so tediously that you can doze off & not miss a thing. I give it 2 & ½ snoozes. Great flick if you're looking to get some shut-eye.

Awful. The sound quality is terrible.

Excellent true movie. Unbelievable what these men did. True heroes.

It's a excellent movie with great actors who give really understated emotional feeling to the movie. Nice to see Pine in a role where he is not the strongest emotional character up front but you see his strengths grow as the movie proceeds. Wierd to see Bana in a weakish character too. Great display of actors who are normally seen as super strong in a character role with strength and weakness.

Excellent movie about overt weakness and hidden strength. Something for everyone, with a satisfying resolution.

Boston accents are as inauthentic as can be. Why is that particular region so difficult for actors to mimic accurately? I blame trump.
