I'm not going to concentrate my review on one scene involving a CGI shark. I will say it looked obscenely fake and did somewhat detach you from that scene as you were too busy preoccupied with the leftover Sharknado prop. Otherwise the film was pretty good. Felton, Delahunt and Abel were all very solid and really evoked the feelings of desperation and humanity relating to the subject of the film. Their performances were enough for me to actually care about the characters and given its also a true story, I found myself more than adequately emotionally invested in the film. There's definitely issues with the film. The score is very hit and miss. Especially the second rate Jaws music in some of the scenes. I've watched hundreds of films worse than this in the last year or so. Did more than enough to keep me watching for 1hr 40mins.

Decent Small Budget MovieReviewed bycuthbertjoelVote: 7/10
Before I start the review I would like to thank Kurt Graver for the early digital copy.
I just finished watching this movie and I must say I'm surprised. The performances were great, the second I saw Tom Felton I remembered Draco Malfoy (Harry Potter) but I have to admit he did an amazing job playing Tony and I immediately forgot about Malfoy. So congratulations to him, Jake Abel and Garret Dillahunt for their amazing performances. I loved the make up, it seemed very real. And of course, the story was amazing. Sometimes this kind of movies with historical events might be a little boring but not Against the Sun. I enjoyed every minute of it and I hope I can see it again soon on the big screen. Congratulations to everyone who made this movie and keep working in great projects like Against the Sun and Parkland.
"They'll check every square mile out here. It'll take a while but they'll do it. Won't they?" After drifting off course a WWII pilot and his crew end up in a tiny lifeboat with no food, water, flares, or any real chance of being rescued. This is the true story of how they did everything the could to survive. Even though this is a true story it is something I had never heard of before. After recently watching Unbroken I was wondering how this would compare. This one opened with about 10 minutes of in plane scenes then right into the raft. What follows is an hour and a half of tense moments and wondering how this will play out. I would compare this very favorably to Unbroken, All Is Lost, or even something like Cast Away. If you have enjoyed those movies then I would check this one out as well. Very inspiring and moving. Another huge surprise watch. I always love when I find a movie I have never heard of that turns out to be better than 90% of the ones I have. This is one of those movies. Overall, if you liked Unbroken than check this one out as well. This is on par or better. I give it a high B+.
