I read Sebastian Junger's original article in Outside magazine and loved it. Then I bought the book and was stunned at the story and Junger's ability to tell it. Then I went to the movie knowing that it could not come close to the book. There is simply no way to 'show' the story that Junger told... for example, his description of drowning is one of the most brutally honest passages I have read. Even with these low expectations for the movie, I was still disappointed. The acting was only OK despite a really strong cast and the depth of characters was sacraficed for fake waves and high winds. Please, please, please, don't watch this movie but do buy the book. It is exceptionally written and a compelling story. It stayed with me for months after reading it.
