Based on the extraordinary true story of the greatest small-boat rescue in U.S. Coast Guard history, 'The Finest Hours' is a tale of courage, faith and honour in the face of overwhelming odds. When a massive storm strikes off the coast of Cape Cod, it rips a T-2 oil tanker in half, trapping more than 30 sailors on its rapidly sinking stern. As Captain Bernie Webber (Chris Pine) and his crew set out in a 12-seat rescue boat to save them, Chief Engineer Ray Sybert (Casey Affleck) struggles to buy his men more time.
Good story based on true events
- The Finest Hours review by gazmb
Really enjoyed this film based on true story , the bravery of a group of rescuers risk everything to save a crew of a crippled ship in bad rough weather at sea never giving up. It kept me interested throughout the film .
I really enjoyed this depiction of a truly heroic event. Not overly distracted by the personal attachments but focused on the enormity of the events. Well done Disney I felt really amazed at the real potential of the human spirit.
