Some of the dramatic scenes are a little cheesy and the acting over-directed, but the film's portrayal of fearsome waves and winds is the real highlight. Some of the big budget storm scenes are wrought with a combination of tension and awe.
Typical Hollywood-ized version of a real event. Still, the special effects are pretty good and the acting, while far too heavy on the emotional side, is still decent. An okay, if not particularly memorable, adventure.
