Storyline

In February of 1952, one of the worst storms to ever hit the East Coast struck New England, damaging an oil tanker off the coast of Cape Cod and literally ripping it in half. On a small lifeboat faced with frigid temperatures and 70-foot high waves, four members of the Coast Guard set out to rescue more than 30 stranded sailors trapped aboard the rapidly-sinking vessel. Written by Walt Disney Studios Publicity

Goofs

When the crew of the Pendleton meet shortly after the ship splits, there is a calendar on the wall for February 1952 which only shows 28 days. 1952 was a leap year, so that calendar page should have showed 29 days. See more »

A truly great story executed poorly by wooden acting, dialogue and a dragging pace.
3 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

The finest hours is a film based off an incredible true story, But the film itself is not so incredible.

Based off a daring coast guard rescue mission, The film tells the story of Bernie Webber {Chris Pine} who sets out to save a group of people on a sinking ship.

The direction by Craig Gillespie fails to bring justice to the real life incident and the pace is just awful, The cast led by Chris Pine and Casey Affleck seem to be sleep walking through the film, The only things i liked about it was some of the effects and some of the score.

The film poorly tells what happened in an ineffective way and i rather watch a documentary about what happened. 3/10
