In October 1991, the fishing community of Gloucester, Massachusetts, experienced the full wrath of Mother Nature when a freak meteorological event produced the fiercest storm in modern history. Director Wolfgang Petersen has fashioned this heroic true story (as chronicled in Sebastian Junger's bestseller) into a star-laden blockbuster, employing computer power to whip up the terrifying titular storm.

George Clooney plays Billy Tyne, captain of the Andrea Gail who has been plagued by bad luck at sea and is on a poor run of catches. Frustrated by the huge hauls of the Hannah Boden, captained by Linda Greenlaw (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), Tyne decides to head back out to sea for the Flemish Cap, a remote area renowned for its rich fishing prospects. He is joined by a number of his regular crew including Billy Shatford (Mark Wahlberg), Dale Murphy (John C Reilly), David Sullivan (William Fichtner), Alfred Pierre (Allen Payne) and Michael Moran (John Hawkes). Sure enough, Tyne's luck changes for the better at the Flemish Cap and the Andrea Gail catches a full haul. Buoyed by the money that awaits them back home, the crew sets off back to Gloucester, but disturbing weather patterns hamper their progress, and they soon find themselves battling against 100ft waves and 120mph winds that threaten to tear the boat apart.

 FANTASTIC DISASTER MOVIE

Top 100  Reviewer Top 100 DVD Reviewer

Finally i got round to seeing this movie and i was amazed at the quality of it. Mark Wahlburg and George Clooney gave brilliant performances along with the rest of the supporting cast as they go off on a fishing trip that turned into disaster when three hurricanes clashed to make the perfect storm. Though i liked SFX based disaster movies this is the best that i have seen by far and a thrilling couple hours of viewing. Enjoy

This film will have you on the edge of your seat. I really can't praise this film enough, the special effects are great, the acting wonderful and the fact that this film is based on a true event makes it even more remarkable and emotional. This is the sort of film that leaves you feeling truly amazed. A definite must buy.
