NO FISHERMAN'S LUCKSeafaring were interesting to follow. To see how the crew worked the whaler and how they hunted whales and collected the whale oil.I like these kinds of historical movies. True stories. Myths. Always interesting to see what happened and what the world was before us and how it has evolved since then. The score was good and the whale scenes were nicely shot.Need to read Herman Mel... read more

Fiction inspired by fiction inspired by non-fiction. While the film is certainly gorgeous in its production design and full of genuine action scenes involving a huge whale it also doesn't boast any strong themes or create any true emotion. It's basically a soft retelling of a hard story. There also didn't seem to be a climax, which is kind of crucial to a story. And how did Chase come back fro... read more

Thoughts Before I Watched This:
1. I been meaning to watch this for some time.
2. The story of Moby Dick was always fun and to see it's inspiration is great.
3. Ron Howard is usually quite an enjoyable director.
4. The cast itself is superb.
5. Charles Leavitt wrote Seventh Son and Blood Diamond which I found both to be enjoyable.
6. More so Blood Diamond of c... read more

"Miksi juuri Ron Howardin piti tehdä tämä? Sen sanottua, kaikki Moby Dickiin ja Essexiin edes etäisesti liittyvä kiinnostaa. Siitä hyvästä jopa se kolme tähteä."

" DVD- 2hrs. 2min. First Viewing While the film is technically magnificent, In the Heart of the Sea is mostly a stale Moby Dick rehash with a bland script and rote characters. The actors try to add some life to the proceeding, but the simply can't compete with the script and lack of interest in the face of effects-laden thrills. Monthly Wesley AwardBest Editing- Daniel P. Hanley & Mike Hill Best Score- Roque Baños Best Production Design Best Sound Best Visual Effects"

An average movie

“Back in 2013, Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth made together 'Rush' which was a box-office flop but, at least, it was very well received and, apparently, this end-result was good enough for them so they came up afterwards with another true tale but the flop was even bigger this time, I'm afraid. To be honest, right from the start, the whole thing felt slightly misguided. Indeed, basically, in fact, it was not exactly about 'Moby Dick', it was apparently an adaptation of a book  about how Herman Melville was inspired by a true story to write his own literary classic. I mean, right from there, how would you approach something so convoluted? Well, apparently, if you are Ron Howard, a decent but never really groundbreaking director, in the most conventional way possible so, of course, it failed” read more

" "The tragedy of the Essex is the story of men. And a Demon." This was one of my most anticipated movies of 2015, but after the pretty bad reviews it got everywhere i kind of lost interest in it. I never went to see it in theatres and didn't get the blu-ray until i found it cheap. Now i actually regret not seeing it in theatres. I actually thought this was a really good movie. I honestly don't know why it got such bad reviews. Usually i can kind of see why even if i like the movie, but here i g"

2015 Movies - Worst to Best IMO... (60 movies items)

"Lots of Hollywood gloss. Still can't quite bring down what seems like an otherwise interesting subject. I liked Tom Holland's accent in the film. Pretty cinematography. It's not really as bad as everyone says it is. All it really needed was a little more heart."
