Six members of a North Atlantic fishing crew, whose boat has just sunk while out on a fishing trip, have managed to take refuge in two of the lifeboats, which they have tied together in their vow to stay together as they try to make their way back to safety. They have also managed to salvage many supplies, including some food and water, which falls to regimented Gib to ration according to Captain Gerald's timetable. With only a compass in hand and no sight of either land or other marine vessels, they can only guess where they are, which Gerald does, believing rightly or wrongly that at the speed and frequency they are rowing, they should hit land in six or seven days barring any unforeseen circumstances.

Terribly Awful Movie
7 March 2015 | by catsgardenSee all my reviews

The title must refer to the investors' money--or the time that viewers wasted.

What an awful movie. It has no beginning and it has no end. It's just two hours of watching men row, row, row their boat.

The positiver reviews must come from the makers of the movie, because this is just an awful, awful movie.

I apparently have to write ten lines of text, so I will add to my review: Don't waste your time. This movie must have cost $49 to make. If you want to watch a boat bob in the water for two hours, this is the movie for you. The only experience you'll have watching this movie is regret that you wasted two hours of your life on it.
