Based on the true story of the Andrea Gail, a swordfishing boat lost at sea in 1991 during a freak storm--one of the biggest of the century--off the coast of Newfoundland. Film briefly sets up the backgrounds of the six men who will be the captain and crew on the tragic voyage, but not even Clooney and Wahlberg can compete with the watery special effects and it turns into a stereotypical disaster flick. Adapted from Sebastian Junger's bestselling nonfiction account of the tragedy.
