White Squall review

An average movie

Even though there was a huge hype surronding ‘1492: Conquest of Paradise’, it was eventuallly a flop and Ridely Scott when through his biggest career deep so far, a deep which lasted until ‘Gladiator’ but the guy has never looked back since then as he has made about 1 movie every year for the last 14 years. Anyway, during this deep, Scott made this flick and it is definitely one of his most obscure features (I can only think of ‘Someone to Watch Over Me’ which could be even more obscure). Since I have always been a fan of Ridley Scott’s work, I was really eager to check this flick and I actually took me several years to finally see the damned thing. Eventually, even though it was nothing amazing, I thought it was still not bad at all. First of all, there was a neat cast of young upcoming actors (Scott Wolf, Jeremy Sisto, Ryan Phillippe, Balthazar Getty) and Jeff Bridges, one of the best actors around, as usual, delivered a solid performance. Obviously, the story was rather generic (the main issue in most of the movies directed by Ridley Scott) but I thought it was entertaining enough. To conclude, even though it is a rather obscure feature, I think it is actually worth a look, especially if you are interested in Ridley Scott’s work.
