The first half of this sea-faring adventure seemed so bogged down with attention to detail and authenticity that the people on board seemed almost like an afterthought, leaving it feeling like a docudrama rather than a film. The second half sees it show the human side of the story however and it becomes far more engaging, culminating in a fine swashbuckling finale. Have patience with it and you will be rewarded.

The pacing and tension of this movie is incredibly effective. The cat-and-mouse game grows with each scene until the film reaches its inventive and explosive conclusion. It may be slow-moving to some, but the film raises the stakes with each scene and I found it impossible to look away.

So utterly boring I couldn't finish it.
