Storyline

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 Dan Stone

Not bad not great
18 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

I am not anti-Watson, in fact I find him admirable insofar as his activism goes, a small effort focused primarily on saving cutsie animals rather than addressing root causes. Not that isn't what most of environmentalism has been about since its inception. However, I was hoping for something in this film--mainly a story of some sort. While this film is very beautiful visually with lots of striking images of the antarctic ocean, the events captured in the film are rather dull--it reminds me more of an extended whale wars episode than a feature film. There is much too much crew whining about this and that, just like the show. I suppose it's included to create some drama, since the film is mostly about running about the ocean looking for a whaling ship target, but after a while the whine does grate on the nerves. Not unlike the show, which is also why I never really watched an episode of that show all the way through. Frankly, Deadliest Catch was more engaging...

So back to this film. If its great images of the antarctic ocean, this is your film. However, if you want to learn about the activism of the Sea Shepherd Society and learn about the crew beyond their griping, a more entertaining, story based take on the Sea Shepherd can be had in these other films: Confessions of an Eco- Terrorist and Eco-Pirate.
