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 »

fine movie and its about something that actually happened although its probably not exactly the same. but to the reviewer that doesn't know anything about fishermen or life in small town in iceland, they are hung over because they were coming from a dance the night before and this is just how it was here and changed only few years ago, those didn't have much life outside of work so they drank a little more but at least they went and met other people in a bar instead of today where most people just drink at home. and the guy never said he was a hero, but he did safe himself and swim to shore in very difficult situation where most people had died, and he hasn't had a great life after this. but the movie shows how life was in iceland in those years and is very realistic doing that. but there are always some people that think they know better then others or how things happened. even people giving movies bad reviews because people are smoking or some stupid things like that, and movies can be good even if you don't like the drinking or whatever is happening in them. just watch it and try what you would have done.
