REVIEWS:





"I was totally blown away by this motion picture experience. I didn't expect to be at all. .... I truly enjoyed every second of this fine production. I thought the writing was very good here. .... The writers have made me care for each person in this script, which makes the tragic end all the more powerful and emotional.
I felt that I lost some people I in some way knew. .... Applause all around for everyone involved in the making of this superlative piece of entertainment."

-- David Von Pein; December 1, 2001











"The Perfect Storm is a well-crafted example of a film of pure sensation. It is about ships tossed by a violent storm. The film doesn't have complex and involving characters, but they are not needed. It doesn't tell a sophisticated story and doesn't need to. .... I was enthralled. .... The film's best scenes are more or less without dialogue, except for desperately shouted words. They are about men trapped in a maelstrom of overpowering forces. .... Even more exciting is the parallel plot involving a Coast Guard rescue of [a] sailboat. .... We know intellectually that we're viewing special effects. Tanks and wind machines are involved, and computer graphics and models. This is not important. The impetus of the story drives us forward, and by the end of the film I was wrung out. It's possible to criticize the sketchy characters, but pointless. The movie is about the appalling experience of fighting for your life in a small boat in a big storm. If that is what you want to see, you will see it done here about
as well as it can be done."

-- Roger Ebert; June 30, 2000
