The Andrea Gail is a sword fishing boat out of Gloucester, Massachusetts. Billy Tyne is her captain, down-on-his-luck from a recent losing streak, looking to bring back one big score so he and his crew will have the money to stay ashore during the coming winter. So out they go, and they hit it big, hauling in what the crew estimates is a quarter-million-dollars worth of fish. Unfortunately, they haven't paid attention to the weather forecasts or the radio, and the boat is right in the path of what will become one of the most terrifying and fantastic storms of the century. The always-beating heart of the adventure are the men (and women) who go down to the sea in ships and are oft-times lost at sea, doing battle with the unpredictable, sometimes vicious forces of Nature. Based on a true story, and dedicated to the ten thousand Gloucestermen who have died at sea since 1623.

This is a 2000 American disaster drama directed by Wolfgang Petersen, based on the 1997 non-fiction book of the same title by Sebastian Junger.
It is the story of the Andrea Gail, a commercial fishing vessel that was lost at sea with all hands after being caught in the Perfect Storm of 1991.
Once the boat hits the storm, you'll definitely remain breathless at the edge of your seat.
It is one of the most thrilling and gripping disaster movies with realistic visual effects ever made.

Some movies are made with very good sounds of the wind, rain, guns, bombs, and creatures. This movie has fantastic sounds of the sea that will sound amazing on your HOMETHEATER. There were some scenes, especially when the storm hits, that sounds as if the ocean was in my home and i was about to get wet. Nice!! But i can't forget this is a very good film with a good cast and story. And near the end, watching that small ship climbing up,up,up the insane wave was breath taking. My friend and i kept saying "come-on, come-on, come-on, make it over the wave" Let's me know how much i was into this movie. THE PERFECT STORM gets a perfect 5 stars!!!!!! For cast, visual effects, audio effects, and a very good story... A large tuna fish sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes, mayo, pickles, on a toasted bun. Arizona icetea.

The sudden unpredictable volcanic power of mother nature, proving far more greater & deadly than the power of mankind.
SAD, TOO MANY LIVES TO MAKE A LIVING FROM THE MOUTH OF STORMS, PERISH IN STORMS.

Excellent film, representing generations of fishermen living & dying in the sea.
