Weirdly uneven, yet mostly watchable.
12 July 2018 | by kitellis-98121See all my reviews

It's hard to quantify this odd little film.

Based on a true story, it is somewhat interesting yet ultimately unsatisfying; moderately thrilling, yet strangely dull; occasionally uplifting yet mostly depressing.

The most consistent thing about it is how inconsistent it is.

For the majority of the scenes at sea I despised each of the men and hoped that they would die horribly, yet when they reached land and were welcomed with such contempt and hostility by the media and the public I found myself rooting for them and hoping for their vindication.

In essence I think I would have to describe this film as a maddeningly uneven depiction of a maddeningly unlikely true story about a maddeningly unlikable quartet of men. How close to the truth it really is will never be known, and that is perhaps the most maddening thing of all.

Frustrating in many respects, yet worth a watch if you're in the right mood.
