Goofs

The events in the movie take place in 1984. When the main protagonist, the only survivor of the boat accident, undergoes a test in the Navy Hospital in London, one of the doctors introduces the other three participants of the test as members of the SBS, the Special Boat Services, a UK special forces unit. The name by which the doctor refers to the unit is incorrect. In 1984, this UK special forces unit in question was called the Special Boat Squadron. It was renamed to Special Boat Service (and not "Services") only three years later, in 1987. See more »

Moderately enjoyable
29 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a fairly enjoyable, yet surprisingly brief story. It's more like an hour-long television drama than a proper film.

Not a whole lot happens. The story is very simple: the lead character is involved in a disaster at sea and must stay alive in icy Atlantic waters. Apparently it's a true story, and we get to meet the real hero at the end of the film.

There are certainly worse movies out there. My main gripe about this one is that there's just not a whole lot to it.

I think some of the best films these days are coming out of Scandinavia (I consider Iceland Nordic). "The Hunt" and "Headhunters" were very good, and I look forward to watching more of them.
