yawn....
5 May 2016 | by statia13See all my reviews

The story line had the potential to be a great action and adventure movie. That's what I thought I was buying, but it turned out to be a little too Hemmingway-esque for me. Two strangers stuck on a sinking boat for hours, perused by the enemy, however, that wasn't a big concern in this film. This was more of a character study. Each man telling his story. It so reminded me of the boring Hemingway books that I was forced to read in high school lit. (Not a fan) I can't recommend this movie. It was just another disappointment in today's movie repertoire. I can't even say anything about it, because it was so shallow. Perhaps I missed something.
