Very well filmed, the true story is more interesting than fiction (by phd_travel)
This stunningly filmed movie is about the true story that was the inspiration for Moby Dick. The movie is worth watching because it's so well filmed, the ocean cinematography is just breathtaking - it's almost enough to make you slightly sea sick. It's actually a better, more interesting and more horrific story than Moby Dick. The characters were imperfect heroes who made mistakes that led to the events.The actors are well cast and their faces fit well into the time period. Chris Hemsworth looks very much like a 19th Century sea man if a bit larger than life as the first mate. <more>
Benjamin Walker has a face that looks very much like a 19th Century portrait of a New England man.Last year Angelina Jolie's stranded at sea survival story "Unbreakable" gave us a taste of the thirst and horror of being without water. But this movie shows us more than thirst with cannibalism.If like me you thought Moby Dick was boring, this movie is actually much more interesting. Worth watching on the big screen.
I'm a big fan of the 50's 'Moby Dick" with Gregory Peck, try and top that! Ron Howard did I thought in this interpretation of a classic. I jerked a well deserved tear at the right moment and if you see the movie and have any heart you'll understand. In this lack of intelligent movie selections this period sensitive film was greatly appreciated by the whole family. Thank you! Ten Stars!!!! Highly Recommend. The CGI was excellent and should not be confused by Peta and other whale rights people as something to protest now. It is a historical part of our past and I thought <more>
very tastefully handled from the whales point of view. See the movie first because it was a good defense against whaling as well. All toll GREAT MOVIE FOR HUMAN AND WHALE><>
Disregard reviews that say it was too slow. I thought it was about right. How do you hurry along being stranded at sea for weeks on end, starving and nothing but sea in every direction? If that bores you because there isn't enough action then you missed the last half of the movie and the main part of the story. It was about the crew dynamics, not conflict with a whale! In actual events, like a old time western gunfight at the OK Corral, or a military firefight in a war zone, the action is over in minutes. The lead up to it where we get to know the characters is an important part of the <more>
story, as well as, the effects of the action on the characters afterwards. In this case, the after effects are an important part of the story. All in all, it was a good balance and I did not think anything wrong with it. I am annoyed with reviewers who wanted it to be just another mindless action film.
A perfect blend of drama & adventure. (by Anurag-Shetty)
In the Heart of the Sea tells the true story of the Essex, a whaling ship. In 1820, while first mate Owen Chase Chris Hemsworth , captain George Pollard Benjamin Walker & the rest of the crew were searching for whales in the middle of the ocean, they encounter a gigantic sperm whale. This gigantic whale causes the Essex to sink. Now, it is up to Owen Chase & the rest of his crew to somehow survive the harsh conditions at sea. They will also have to be alert for the return of the whale. The true story of this movie, inspired Herman Melville's Ben Whishaw famous novel, Moby Dick. <more>
In the Heart of the Sea is a spectacular film. The CGI is perfect & the whales in the movie look extremely realistic & intimidating. The 3D works really well in all the scenes involving the whales & the chaos & destruction set pieces. However, it is unnecessary for the emotional scenes of the movie. Director Ron Howard perfectly captures the suffering of all the crew members of the Essex. He makes sure that the movie is not just about the special effects & adventure but, also adds dramatic set pieces. One flaw of the movie is the lack of character development. Despite everything they go through, you don't genuinely care about the fate of all the characters in the movie. You only care about, Chris Hemsworth's character, Tom Holland's character, Cillian Murphy's character & to a certain extent, Benjamin Walker's character. At the end of the day, this is not a major flaw because, you can't give each & every character a detailed back-story. This would have unnecessarily elongated the duration of the movie. Chris Hemsworth has given the best performance of his career, as Owen Chase. Hemsworth's dramatic weight loss for the film, shows the dedication & hard work he has put in for his role. Benjamin Walker is great as George Pollard. Cillian Murphy is brilliant as Matthew Joy. Brendan Gleeson is good as Tom Nickerson. Ben Whishaw is wonderful as Herman Melville. Tom Holland is outstanding as Thomas Nickerson. Frank Dillane is superb as Owen Coffin. The supporting characters are impressive too. In the Heart of the Sea is a must watch. Go for it!
In the Heart of the Sea, the new genre movie of adventurous (by jeannefrancoise)
Moby Dick, these is not just a title of modern literature, but also a name of a man who wants to travel as far as possible. Moby Dick adventurous story is not just came up by coincidence, but it was created cheerfully by a novelist, Herman Merville. This film, that I suppose to review, tells us about a real story that inspires Herman Merville to write Moby Dick. If the readers could imagine the adventurer time in the film Pirates of the Caribbean, In the Heart of the Sea, gives us more than just a comedy. Speaking about plot, the film started at the house where Herman Merville tried to make <more>
confession of an old sailor, the one who still alive from the ship Essex. Later at the film, you would know why he is the one who survives. In the term of cinematography, basically I really appreciate the way of the crew to make the 19th alive again, with the dress, architecture, culture, and also the ship itself. Without a very good special effect, In the Heart of the Sea could not be in the real Sea. As seen on the title, more than 75% of the film will lead you to see the Sea. I also want to give comments about the title that maybe promises you about the whale, seen many times at the film, but the whales are not the main plot of the story. This means the ending also a surprise, maybe the watchers imagine of fighting whales at the first, but this film can give more. You can also understand the connection between government, private companies, judges, and insurance behind the maritime industry at that time. So, whale is just a way of Director to lead people to cover all the story of the failure of searching oils. For me this film is simple, but genius.
I see that it is cashing less than expected. Maybe because people read that is a film of adventure. But the images of adventure are few. I refer to the narrative of the story to the writer. And to the long days of the shipwreck. What do we mean with "adventure"? I seem a survival story. Chris Hemsworth was really good in this movie. The movie is captivating for sure. The effort put in to make the movie is very well visible. But, as I write, this film does not exactly live up to its full potential. It seems a philosophical story, basically grounded on the human greed and how the <more>
nature responded to it. It sounds ordinary, but with the combination of a good direction and screenplay.
yes, some movies get released in India even before US/UK. this is one such movie which got released one week before US. I went for the movie more for nature, graphics and 3D of Whale, but as a sweet surprise, the director took more time in depicting characters and their feelings rather than spending time on Whale or graphics, which is a welcome change, considering we having lots of movies with CG now a days.as i said in the summary, it is a movie at the right pace, brooding, dark and desolate at times but nevertheless beautiful.beautiful how the bickering relationship between captain and his <more>
first mate changes into a influencing r.ship in the end is lovely. should i say ? must watch.many viewers from IMDb yet to watch this movie, so no spoiler from my side ! enjoy the survival of the fittest and the people who have hope to survive any situation !!swim in the lovely emotions director created
This is a high quality sea faring adventure movie, apparently based on a true event. I am glad to highly recommend the film as the whole production is first class and to fully appreciate the picture better to view it at the movie house rather than the likes of DVD. As for example the spectacular ocean scenes are at their best on the big screen.In around 1820 huge profits were available to shipping companies for catching whales mainly for their sperm. One such company had an important whale hunting expedition but for selfish motives employed an inexperienced ship's captain, whilst the <more>
second in command ought to have been in charge. That fatal error leads to disastrous consequences. Indeed it was this story which led to the subsequent fictional classic book Moby Dick. The movie for me captures the time period perfectly as the production and design is meticulous even down to the accents and language spoken. I felt I was transported to the 1820's and beyond.An excellent cinema experience! 7 and a half rounded up:8/10.
A stunning tribute to Melville's Moby Dick (by scottshak_111)
A poetic and arresting take on one of the deadliest fictional water beasts.Nathaniel Philbrick's In the Heart of the Sea is an entirely different take on Moby Dick, a different vantage that pays tribute to the most beloved tales of all times. The plot begins with Herman Melville played by a bearded Ben Whishaw visiting Nickerson, a survivor of the Whaleship Essex that went down owing to a tragedy that befell the entire crew when they encountered a gigantic sperm whale. Melville is bent on squeezing out the horror from Nickerson's eyes into his leaflets because he believes it to be one <more>
of the greatest stories he has ever come across.Philbrick's perspective is exceptional. Ron Howard cashes in on it just fine. He follows the tale with eye threatening close ups and water-shots to jackhammer the dread quotient. Wonderful whale shots have been captured. Essex-sailing, the squall, whale-hunting have been depicted splendidly. It was a joy to watch the beast breathe alive for the first time in the sea. The size of that thing! The satellite shot ensured the audience scaled it amidst puny boats.The better part of the movie runs in a diegesis which has been brilliantly written. The score often moves around the soothing notes of a viola that makes the flick a heartwarming watch. Whales have been subtly shown, never given a proper focus, reflecting – just like you would be bewitched by its swiftness in real life. The beast is a beauty! Tiniest of details on its flank have been manifested subtly. Then there is that bad-ass tail. Watch that beauty surge!What In the Heart of the Sea fails to milk is the "Chase-Pollard" rivalry. It had no Rush charm to it. Coffin's role too seemed like a cameo which could have possibly unfurled into a possible brilliant feud. The young Nickerson played by Tom Holland was simply an eye in a tale. His character adds little value to an ongoing stream. Tom is an outstanding actor however he gets lost under the doldrums of their unfortunate tragedy, and often gets overshadowed by the movie's protagonists. Matthew Joy's character seemed like a crucial build; however Murphy wasn't allowed to show off his acting prowess. Flick's editing made sure of that.SPOILERS AHEAD:One of the hardest choices Chase has to make when he finally gets a clean shot on the whale and he chooses not to take it. Whilst the writer leaves that bit for viewer interpretation, it is quite poetic if you really look at it. Chase was convinced they were flung into the jaws of chaos owing to the job they did. He throws the idea to Pollard in one of the finest conversations they had in the entire movie. He starts to believe everything they went through was because they were hunting and killing whales for profit. He takes the sperm whale to be an eye-opener.He looks it in the eye and whilst the world wonders why he doesn't budge, he silently lets the beast go thus saving his crew from another mishap. All those segments have been beautifully depicted by Ron. It is really hard to show such bits via a movie but he nails it anyhow.Also the survival tale reeks of an emotional trauma when the crew resorts to cannibalism. It hasn't been depicted but the words and the diegetic tone are enough to give you an idea. It is a terrible thing to have happened. Howard ensures he keeps things subtle whilst touching such a delicate topic.Charles Leavitt's screenplay is downright gorgeous. There isn't a moment you don't marvel at his beautiful words. They are drenched in literary awesomeness. There are so many points wherein I felt my ears tingle with powerful words.I would highly recommend this movie to everyone. It is a beautiful tribute to Herman Melville and his super-rad legendary creation Moby Dick.
