Reviews:
"An impressively rendered killer storm is the star of THE FINEST HOURS..." - 01/18/2016 Hollywood Reporter


"THE FINEST HOURS tells the story of a little-known yet fairly incredible 1950s rescue mission, in which a four-man band of Coast Guard troops went above and beyond the call of duty..." - 01/18/2016 Variety


"[I]t is the physical reproduction of that angry storm as shot by cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe that makes the most lasting impression." - 01/28/2016 Los Angeles Times


"[S]talwart and foursquare, it pits its plainspoken characters against all the 3-D ocean peril that modern technology can throw off a screen." - 01/28/2016 Boston Globe


"In the film, the surviving crew is led by the ship’s can-do engineer, played by Casey Affleck as a somewhat antisocial scholar of nautical mechanics. Affleck is the best thing about the film..." - 01/28/2016 Washington Post


"This true-life 1952 saga at sea doesn't reinvent the genre or show off with nonstop bells and whistles. But The Finest Hours gets the job done, just like its central character." - 01/27/2016 Rolling Stone
