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 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!"
