'The Finest Hours'- Movie Review

 
OMG YALL! You know it's gonna be a good movie review when I start the review in all caps. Kind of like one of the recent movie reviews I did for 'Brooklyn'. This is a fantastic movie, I am just sad I didn't go and see it earlier. This is one of those movies I would love to watch a few more times because I know I would pick up more information and piece more and more things together.
 
 
There are several reasons to see this movie:
1. Chris Pine is in it
2. It is a captivating and thrilling movie
3. Chris Pine is in it

Summary:
Based off a true story, on February 18th, 1952, a massive storm split the SS Pendleton in half. Under seemingly impossible odds, Chief Cluff sends Bernie Webber and three men on a life boat into the disastrous weather to save the men that are stranded on this sinking ship. As the Engineer Ray Sybert takes charge of the men on the ship, they wait and keep the ship above water as they wait and pray Bernie and his men can find them.

My Thoughts:
  Oh my goodness y'all, this movie is I.N.T.E.N.S.E!! This is a movie based off a true story. This is still to this day considered one of the greatest single boat rescue missions of all time. The actors and actresses in this movie portray the time period perfectly and there are such charming moments through out the film that will have you wishing you were in the 50's right now. However this is also a very thrilling movie with a lot of drama. From the minute the movie starts you are on the edge of your seat tapping your heel up and down like a crazy person. Not going to lie, me and my sister may have been bracing our selves holding on to each other shaking at parts. This isn't a very emotional movies as far as crying goes but it will definitely make you tear up at parts. More than anything you will have chills down your spine every other scene. I am blown away by others bravery and willingness to fight for my freedom.

What You Need To Know:
This is actually a pretty clean movie with hardly any language. There are a few cuss words thrown around a few times but other than that, the language and characters are very classy.  There is no sex scenes or nudity and no terribly bloody scenes. For a war time movie, it wasn't bad at all. There were a few deaths, none of which were visual or frightening. Love that this movie was SO great and intense without adding so much of those useless affects.

Watch The Trailer:

That's all I have for ya folks :) I hope you go to see it in theaters or support it when it comes out on Redbox and DVD. To all of the brave men and women who have served in the Navy or Coast Guard like my grandad: Thank you.
