Re: This should be a good movie.

Will probably check it out but I'm prepared to be disappointed.. It's pretty difficult, it seems, to accurately film this kind of scenario.

Dead Calm, Perfect Storm, White Squall and their kind had all kinds of potential but I thought they ultimately disappointed on the sailing/seafaring side of things.

I think some of the best actual sailing footage was in another otherwise lame movie 'Wind'.
