The critics panned this movie...but I, like you, quite enjoyed it.
The critics thought the movie was building itself up to some kind of real excitement and drama that never really materialized. Also the whole reality show type of vote the guy of the Island was never something I enjoyed and has grown even more stale 10 years after the inception of Survivor. But being more of a sailing junky than a film critic...I just sucked it up. I like the Oz...he was pretty cool.
Even though I too quite enjoyed First Light but obviously it didn't touch "Captain Ron" or "Master and Commander"
I would say I enjoyed the 80s movie "Wind" more than First Light.
And Dove is very good too. Boatniks is good for a chuckle.
White Squall is another great.
Am I missing some? Probably.
