A Review of In the Heart of the Sea

I saw the movie, “In the Heart of the Sea,” last night. This story has real historical significance, amazing videography, and will be of great interest to those who have an affinity for the days of the old sailing ships, but Ron Howard’s efforts to make this a block-buster with lots of special effects have been wasted.  The IMAX theater, at 7 pm, had very few takers, and I predict that this movie will be eclipsed by Hunger Games, Star Wars, and various Krampus types of films. I would add that Chris Hemsworth is as much an unconvincing actor as his accent is unbelievable. One caveat for the squeamish: If you would be upset by the harpooning and lancing of cetaceans, albeit simulated, then you probably should choose another film.
