Talk about some OUTSTANDING MOVIE!!! I actually heard about this story from a friend and was in awe how they survived. Amazingly, Disney retold this story in movie form and it was a nail biter from start to finish. This film feature two hours of non-stop adventure from start to finish. My favorite character in the movie was Chris Pine who plays the role of Bernie Webber. He leads a crew of four men who go out to rescue the crew of a ship that has split in half. Watching the two scenes, back and forth, really added up to some intense action.
I will say that seeing the real life credit and pictures at the end was truly amazing. After watching the movie and seeing what they went through, it was super effective to see the real men behind this journey. This rescue drama movie will be a great watch and one that you must see. Disney’s The Finest Hours is on DVD today!
