Storyline

The St. Christopher is a Kodiak, Alaska based fishing boat that fishes the waters of the Bering Sea. Its crew is a disparate group, with those in authority - most specifically Captain Jack Colvin, and deck boss Stubbs - having an "you better do your job and do it well or else" attitude, which affects primarily novice seaman Tommy, who is looking for a financial windfall while having an adventure. For Stubbs, being disagreeable seems to be a sport. For Jack, it's because of the dire financial situation he's in, which didn't even allow him to pay his crew on their last outing. He is caught in a catch-22 situation: the St. Christopher has not passed its safety inspection, but he can't afford the necessary repairs unless he goes out fishing, most specifically in the lucrative scallop fishery, and brings in a good haul. So Jack and crew decide to slip out of port undetected to get a jump on the fishery, despite what looks to be an impending storm. What they are unaware of is that there is ... Written by Huggo

Once you leave Port, it's too late
4 April 2011 | by bcthedjSee all my reviews

.

OK, some of the others reviewing here lasted only 10 minutes into this

I made it to almost 14

As an ol' Navy guy who has seen my fair share of Blue Water and White Waves, was interested in this Film and its Story. Love Rough Water and Bouncing Boats.

And even have a Nephew who took a turn on one of these Alaska fishing boats. ONE turn, then as he put it - felt half lucky to make it back to shore, and never go out again.

So had great hopes as this Film started, but they quickly sank, like this Film.

Am always willing to grant 'literary license' to the Teller of a Tale, and even be forgiving for what may be shortcomings in how 'good' a Story could have been Told. Either in reading a book, for example, or here in a Film.

But, when the Young Kid - in town for less than an hour - signs on with a Boat and Crew he knows nothing about ?

Damn, what a dumb azz.

THEN, the one guy empties the Kid's stuff on the deck and throws the suitcase onto the pier ?

AND - the Kid still wants to stay with THAT boat and crew ?

Damn, what an Official Dumb Azz.

OK Kid - you'll get what you deserve

But you won't get me to 'sign on' with the crew of this film and story. Like said above - willing to give a little bit, but this is too far from reality for my taste. OK, yes, perhaps it is realistic in the context of this Story for the Kid to be a Dumb Azz and sign on with that Boat and Crew only after JUST meeting them, but I'm not him.

So yes, like a smart rat - I know when to get off a sinking ship, even at 14 minutes

If you're reading this - you'd be advised to do the same

And be like my Nephew - don't go back .
