Director Ron Howard and actor Chris Hemsworth reunite after 2013’s Rush with this retelling of the true story that inspired Herman Melville’s classic novel Moby Dick. Co-stars Cillian Murphy and Brendon Gleeson.

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The maritime disaster brought on a harrowing aftermath, pushing the ship’s surviving crew to their limits stranded at sea for 90 days and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive.

A pedestrian retelling.

Kudos to Ron Howard for taking a slightly different approach, even if it never quite matches the resonance of Ahab's epic quest.

Hemsworth, botched New England accent and all, is a movie star, and this is movie star material.

Something less than a whale of a tale.

What the film lacks in terms of Melville's thunderous exposition of human frailty and obsession it makes up for in rollicking entertainment.
