Sorry but this was a dud. I wonder when reading the reviews if people were viewing the same movie I watched. I normally like Woodley as an actor but she gigled one time to many in this film, in no way was believable, also the two main actors had no chemistry at all. 2013 All is Lost with Robert Redford is a very similar theme but done so much better with an actor at the top of theie game.
Good movie for real story, Shailene Woodley made here own way in this movie, she make who watching here performance belive the story. Looking forward to watch here in defirrent charicters.
It’s a good cry very touching. If you like love stories here you go!
I was super excited to watch this movie and wanted to see it in theaters but missed out. So I finally rented it and watched it and I must say it just came short of my expectations. The overall storyline was amazing and I enjoyed that. Once the movie was done though, I was left wanting more because it seemed like there should have been more there. It seemed to start off really slow and then when it started to get really good the movie was over. I was quite shocked because of course the trailer really hypes it up and it just fell a bit short. It is still a good movie and I would recommend watching it but just be warned that you once it starts getting really good it just ends.
I enjoyed this for her second time. It has all the beauty of romance and inspiring life choices.
3 stars because it is pretty much what happened. This was the defigning event in Tami's life. I doubt she ever really got over it. I've heard this story 50 times from Tami and 30 or so people. After this event, Tami ended up in Friday Harbor, working the docks for a number of years. She seemed to wear her heart on her sleeve a bit. To the movies credit, it apparently stayed very true to form. The actor Woodley even reminded me of Tami, and the events and places & situations filmed are realistic, the one exception is the great hurricane had a bit of computer graphics. So be aware this movie wasn't designed as a stand alone entertaining movie, but a real event. Tami always seemed a bit of a bent nail, it doesn't surprise me it was made into a drama movie. It does give a clue of what the cruising world is like, and the jam some young sailors can get into with more opportunities and situations than they can handle successfully. This was a unsuccessful delivery trip, one dead, one hurt, one collected the insurance policy.
Amazing movie. It’s not easy for me to like a movie, but this one was awesome.
Such a awesome story behind it! I definitely think it is better than the reviews people are giving it!
This movie gave me so many emotions, I don’t understand why other people are hating.
Nicely done, refreshing not to hear cursing and fighting. Really enjoyed the adventure and scenery.
