Movie Reviews

  • the storm effects are first-rate, immersive all the way. The tale-telling ability of director Craig Gillespie is frustratingly inconsistent
    2.5 of 4 by Soren Anderson [Seattle Times ]
  • the result couldn't be more convincing, and in a film like "The Finest Hours," that counts for a lot
    by Kenneth Turan [LA Times ]
  • the movie essentially kills time until the CGI takes over and the oil tanker is torn in half
    2.5 of 5 by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic ]
  • eventually the whole film is just adrift
    2.5 of 4 by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger ]
  • doesn't reinvent the genre or show off with nonstop bells and whistles. But The Finest Hours gets the job done, just like its central character
    2.5 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • director Craig Gillespie (Million Dollar Arm) captures the inherent bravery at the heart of Finest Hours even though things go nowhere on the homefront
    2 of 4 by Brian Truitt [USA Today ]
  • "The Finest Hours" is probably the best of a bad bunch of recent releases. But it's a shame that this terrific story's engines keep flooding in the face of wave after wave of narrative inertia
    2.5 of 4 by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post ]
