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. So Jack and crew decide to slip out of port undetected to get a jump on the fishery, despite what looks to be an impending storm. What they are unaware of is that there is ... Written by Huggo

Bad bad bad
26 January 2010 | by (Bracebridge Ont) – See all my reviews

Forget for the moment that this is a simply terrible movie, ninety minutes of cardboard people shouting incomprehensibly while being splashed and soaked. It is yet another case of a movie subsidized by the Canadian taxpayer that is set in the United States. Is the purpose of tax subsidies just to create jobs in a branch plant Canadian film industry or is it also to develop films that tell Canadian stories? Yet time and time again our tax dollars go to pay for bad movies that tell American stories. We have three seacoasts in this country. There have been any number of adventures/tragedies/explorations/incidents/battles on each of them. Could the chicken livered flunkies who made this bad movie not have turned their mediocre talents to making a bad movie about the Franklin expedition, the Newfoundland seal hunt, the sinking of the Empress of Ireland etc. etc. etc. Canada has much in common with Australia. Yet Aussie film makers don't find it necessary to suck up to the American market in this demeaning manner. The irony is that the film, and others of its ilk, are so bad I doubt if a fifth ranked UHF station in Dubuque Iowa would want to schedule it even at 3am. Bah!!!
