The Finest Hours (2016) – Movie Review


Movie Review –

The Finest Hours (2016) is a fairly well put together film based on true events. This movie for the most part had some well performed acting, the script was a little rushed, and the film had a ton of green screen issues but all in all the film was pretty good. I do think they put just a bit too much music in the film as almost every happening within the scene had music overpowering the dialogue. I was hopeful when watching this film and was not let down by the story, given all of the action scenes with the storm affects I’m sure covering the screens were quite difficult, all though I would think that the minor things like hair blowing in the wind would at least be going on but, again the story kept the film going. As I said above the film was pretty good and worth checking out.

Our Rating based on 1-5 Stars: 4 stars

Plot or Story Line –

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 the more than 30 stranded sailors trapped aboard the rapidly-sinking vessel.
