We gave this thing forty minutes to spark our interest. The acting is wooden,and the computerized special effects are laughable, obvious, and have that "slapped on" feeling and look. We couldn't even stand to finish it skipping whole chapters. This can't possibly be all that faithful a telling of this story.
McDreamy is McCrappy, Bryan Brown is bad, and Michael Caine HAS to be embarrassed. The ship isn't even all that imaginative, the whales look fake, and by the time the first ship is attacked, we were rooting for a sinking.
Avoid this movie like the flotsam it is.
