Storyline

The St. Christopher is a Kodiak, Alaska based fishing boat that fishes the waters of the Bering Sea. Its crew is a disparate group, with those in authority - most specifically Captain Jack Colvin, and deck boss Stubbs - having an "you better do your job and do it well or else" attitude, which affects primarily novice seaman Tommy, who is looking for a financial windfall while having an adventure. For Stubbs, being disagreeable seems to be a sport. For Jack, it's because of the dire financial situation he's in, which didn't even allow him to pay his crew on their last outing. He is caught in a catch-22 situation: the St. Christopher has not passed its safety inspection, but he can't afford the necessary repairs unless he goes out fishing, most specifically in the lucrative scallop fishery, and brings in a good haul.

25 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

bad acting, worse effects, and the most terrible thing is the ridiculous conversations and antics between the "actors", if they could even hold the title of "actor" after this filming. I'm deeply disappointed in discovery for this one. And, more disappointed in myself for not changing the channel 10 minutes into it. Don't make the same mistake I did and throw away 2 hours of your life! I just signed up for your website. I proceeded to comment on a movie. Your guidelines require 10 lines of text? That is way more than 500 words. This is ridiculous, you recommend 200-500 words and no more than 1000. Why couldn't you leave it at that? By adding ten lines 200-500 is out of the question, its damn near impossible actually. Please take me out of your system. Its already absurd. I just want to comment on a movie and have to go through this?
