Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.
In October 1991, a confluence of weather conditions combined to form a killer storm in the North Atlantic. Caught in the storm was the sword-fishing boat Andrea Gail. Magnificent foreshadowing and anticipation fill this true-life drama while minute details of the fishing boats, their gear and the weather are juxtaposed with the sea adventure. Written by

The name on the container ship is "Aeolis," an ancient country in Asia, not "Aeolus," a type of printing font. The font used on the side of the sailing ship Mistral as well as on the life preservers is "Mistral," designed by Roger Excoffon in 1953.

The Perfect Storm by perfectly frightened film makers
A mixed bag. Some of the acting was good - certainly better than "Titanic", but some made the eyes roll. The storm effects were fantastic as advertised, but since they were so good, I have one question: Why beat it to death with the symphony orchestra? It seems ridiculous to imagine, but the makers of this film must have at some point looked at the great, rousing footage and said, "It's not good enough. Bring on the violins!"
