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.

1952: a sinking tanker broken in half with 32 men aboard during a vicious winter storm, a small rescue boat with only room for 12 trying to reach them against all odds: ways better than any mission impossibles and it's all true: check out the final credits. SFX a bit unreal but hey, this is Disney!

I'm a sucker for a story about true heroics. I liked this movie. I thought it was well made, good acting, harrowing and shiver me timbers cold. Though it is another example of glad I didn't spend the bucks seeing it on the big screen. I like an epic for that.

A bunch of people who repeat lines until they get them correct try to mimic East Coast accents whilst pretending to be in love, trapped on a sinking ship, & saving victims on said sinking ship. Some of the action scenes are well-made, but this film does nothing more than educate us about a rescue that actually took place & it labours the point so tediously that you can doze off & not miss a thing. I give it 2 & ½ snoozes. Great flick if you're looking to get some shut-eye.

Excellent true movie. Unbelievable what these men did. True heroes.

It's a excellent movie with great actors who give really understated emotional feeling to the movie. Nice to see Pine in a role where he is not the strongest emotional character up front but you see his strengths grow as the movie proceeds. Wierd to see Bana in a weakish character too. Great display of actors who are normally seen as super strong in a character role with strength and weakness.

Excellent movie about overt weakness and hidden strength. Something for everyone, with a satisfying resolution.

Boston accents are as inauthentic as can be. Why is that particular region so difficult for actors to mimic accurately? I blame trump.
