I know a lot of people who thought the crew was going to survive, but people fail to realise that this is a true story, and that the producers tried to recreate this as best as possible. Although no one really knows what happened to the Andrea Gail, you can be rest assured that what was represented was a close as they could come. I watched a programme on MSNBC on Thursday about the story, and they showed many Gloucester natives that knew the crew of the boat, including the woman fisherman (sorry, name is escaping me). At any rate, I thought it was a pretty good movie, and a give it a fair recommendation.
However, a very good thriller was "What Lies Beneath". I saw it last night, and I recommend anyone who likes thrillers to go see this. Michelle Pfeiffer and Harrison Ford were excellent, and there were all sorts of plot twists, etc.

It was a good movie. I would give it a 7 out of 10. Before I saw the movie I had seen a show that told about the true story, so I knew that the crew wasn't going to make it. By the way, I saw the X Men too, and that is a better movie. 8.5 out of 10.
