At the Edge of the World chronicles the controversial Sea Shepherd Antarctic Campaign against a Japanese whaling fleet. The international volunteer crew, under-trained and under-equipped, develop a combination of bizarre and brilliant tactics with which to stop the whalers. But first they must find the Japanese ships, a far more difficult challenge than ever imagined - long-time activist Paul Watson and first-time captain Alex Cornelissen employ an array of strategies in the hopes of finding an elusive adversary in the vast expanse of the Ross Sea. With one ship (the Farley Mowat) too slow to chase down the whaling fleet, with their second ship (the Robert Hunter) unsuited for Antarctic ice conditions and with no country supporting their efforts to enforce international law, the situation becomes increasingly desperate. Against all odds, however, a real-life pirate tale unfolds - a modern-day "David vs. Goliath" adventure.Written by
the story is unbelievable and the chances taken are out of this world. it's nice to see regular people willing to volunteer for what they think is right, even though their resources are inadequate and the powers-that-be don't want them out there. also nice not be treated like an idiot,movie put me on the ships and then let me be part of the experience - it's not for those who need spoon-feeding. liked the analysis in the 'external reviews' link. music great except for part when two sing. thankfully, something i can enjoy with my kids. why do these people have to risk their lives in the Antarctica ocean? why don't the governments enforce the laws?
