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

Loved this movie, the whole family will love this pulse pounding roller coaster
7 February 2016 | by marksmithzSee all my reviews

This director has pushed the bounds of new camera angles. The story was brought to life in a very dramatic way.

A story about people who run into burning buildings when were all running out. Told in a new novel way, that draws you in.

This movie riveted me to the seat, read the amazon reviews for the book...same thing.

I've been very suspicious of Disney movies recently and will only let my kids watch them after I've seen them. This movie is safe for the family, a little to intense for the young. But it is the way movies should be made to create role models for the youth to emulate. Real Men, Real Heroes I believe there is a move to discredit movies like this.

I'm been on sail boats in waves 1/4 the size in this movie and I was wondering if I was going to make it.
