About the Movie

Sebastian Junger's phenomenal best seller hits the screen starring George Clooney as the veteran skipper of a fishing boat on a collision course with fate in the suspense-filled true story of The Perfect Storm. Just days after returning from a disappointing fishing trip, Andrea Gail captain Billy Tyne (Clooney) decides to return to the sea to trawl for swordfish one last time before the season ends. From the port of Gloucester, Massachusetts, Tyne and a five-man crew that includes seaman Bobby Shatford (Mark Wahlberg) set sail for the Flemish Cap, rich fishing grounds far beyond the vessel's normal range. Out at sea, Tyne learns of an impending storm but thinks he can outrun it. Little does he know that he's contending with not one but three weather fronts that unite to create the fiercest, most destructive storm of the 20th century!Less

Awesome movie!!!

Great cast, great story, great acting. Love the movie and happy to see it available on Itunes.


This is ones the bests movies that I have watched in a long time, Leadership, fellowship and comradeship, unifying the man in a major life surviving, just awesome. I felt disappointed in the end, but I give up, life is what is, there is no what if the end was different. I am touched, for this movie.
