Chris’ latest film, In the Heart of the Sea — an adaptation of Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the 1820 tragedy of the whaling ship Essex, which reportedly inspired Herman Melville to write Moby Dick — hit theatres this weekend. Take a look below at what the critics have to say about the film:
RogerEbert.com — The film remains watchable, thanks to Anthony Dod Mantle’s cinematography, the superb supporting cast (which includes Cillian Murphy as a veteran second mate), and the sheer scale of its production. Much of the seafaring action was shot on a full-scale, working replica of the Essex, with actors (including Hemsworth) scampering up and down masts in long crane shots so you know it’s really them. And the whales, created through CGI and puppetry, are so magnificent that I wouldn’t have minded watching them for two hours floating around and talking to each other in subtitled whalesong. A version of “Moby-Dick” told entirely from the whale’s point-of-view might be fascinating; at the very least it would be more fascinating than this impressively enormous and impassioned but disjointed film.
EntertainmentWeekly.com — Howard’s take on the film is “light on personality and spark, which is a bit of a problem for a white-knuckle whaling tale. Some of this, obviously, rests with the director. But it also falls at the feet of his leading man, Chris Hemsworth, who fails to muster the same sort of charisma he displayed in Howard’s last film, Rush. He’s a strapping, seafaring cipher.”
RollingStone.com — Only landlubbers would resist the rousing action of man versus leviathan. Sure it’s old-school. So what. Howard puts heart, soul and every computerized whale trick in the book into crafting a seafaring adventure to rock your boat.
Vulture.com — What a leading man [Chris Hemsworth] makes, brawny and bold and blond and fair. The Viking-like Hemsworth is well-cast as a veteran Nantucket whaler who seeks to command his own ship, but whose lowly origins keep him down. The whaling sequences probably work best, in part because that’s where the film is most heavily invested. Howard seems less interested in the men than in the machinery and the viscera – the ropes, bolts, and harpoons, and the fat, the entrails, the blood. Even the sickly pallor of Anthony Dod Mantle’s processed-looking color photography works here. This might be the first film I’ve ever seen where I couldn’t decide if the cinematography was outlandishly beautiful or outlandishly ugly; but in these whaling sequences, the difference sort of doesn’t matter.
