Reviews:
"[T]he movie churns with color-scape skies and abstracted cuts to strained riggings and whale viscera, while murky waters and old glass make ripples in the foreground of the 3-D frame." - 12/10/2015 A.V. Club


"Howard enlivens the pursuit with some unique camera angles. Performances, meanwhile, are decent across the board, with Holland reaffirming his screen presence after THE IMPOSSIBLE." - 12/02/2015 Total Film


"Howard puts heart, soul and every computerized whale trick in the book into crafting a seafaring adventure to rock your boat." - 12/10/2015 Rolling Stone


"It's whale of a tale that's equal parts thriller and disaster film." - 12/13/2015 USA Today
