Talk about bravery and self sacrifice, also kinda cold and friggid (weather and all) this movie starrs Chris Pine (Bernie Webber) and his amazing girlfriend whom I much loved Holliday Grainger (Miriam).
The movie is set on February 18th 1952 when a raging sea storm splits the SS Pendleton into two trapping over 32 sailors inside the tankers sinking stern. Defying all odds, being a shy and retiring fellow who asked permission to get married (imagine that) Bernie Webber embarks on an impossible mission against giant waves to rescue the sea men. The movie’s great but it’s kinda bland as it’s all historical stuff, a little touch of romance but great act of bravery. I suggest you watch this movie but probably with a hot cup of cocoa because the weather scene is damn contagious, enjoy.

Review

Tagged as the most daring rescue in U. S coast guard History, the finest hours is a remarkable story of bravery, courage and heroism.
The movie which was directed by Craig Gillespie, who directed fright night and million dollar arm. The director himself called it a crazy story, well I couldn’t agree more.

Plot

The movie is set on february 1952, of the coast of Chattam, when two oil tankers are split in half, only one tanker sent out a distress call and all communications we routed to this one, the other didn’t send a distress call,  this 2nd one drifted towards the coast near the, Chatam station, someone saw it and sent out a call.

Bernie Webber, played by Chris Pine ( Bernie Webber was born in May 9 1928, Milton) is the main antagonist in the movie.

The ship which had been traveling from Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Boston, Massachusetts, the oil tanker broke apart and the communication equipment was destroyed.

” the tanker cracked right through number 8 hold, just forward of midship. right up to that time, we had no warning anything was wrong” – The Southeast Missourian). Only a small radio receiver worked. The two sections of the Pendleton were spotted by the coast guard and their locations were tracked.

According to the true Finest hours true story, the world War 2 Era T2 tanker was carrying kerosene and heating oil, the other T2, the SS Fort Mercer, was carrying kerosene.
Bernie assembled four guys in a 36 foot long boat that was meant to carry 12 persons, and discovered 33 on the Pendleton. After he left, though disproved by the real story, his fiance Miriam, played by Holliday Grainger, an English and stage actress came to look for her lover, they were meant to get married. She went straight to the station commander played by Eric Bana to look for him.

“my God, do they really think a lifeboat and its crew could actually make it that far out to sea in this storm and find the broken ship amid the blinding snow and raging seas with only a compass to guide them? If the crew of the lifeboat didn’t freeze to death first, how will they be able to get the men off the storm from tossed sections of the broken tanker”.

– Benard c Webber (The Lifeboat men).
