The Finest Hours 

 

It is always nice seeing movies based on real life events. It is even better when those real life events are heroic. It is even better still when we find out God had a hand in the events that happened. We get all of those things with The Finest Hours. I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming was provided the Blu-ray + Digital HD version of this movie. It is an inspirational movie.

Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster and Eric Bana headline The Finest Hours. They all do amazing jobs. The era The Finest Hours comes from is the 1950s. So the young lady love interest is extremely pushy. I can not see that going over very well in that era. She also did not seem to trust God to keep her fiance alive. Hopefully she learned her lesson. The Finest Hours does not show us that.

I loved seeing the men pray in The Finest Hours. They did so after the oil tanker they were on split in two in a nasty winter storm. Their half stayed afloat for a bit while the other half went down. Plenty of men died that night. Thirty-two were saved thanks to Captain Bernie Webber. This rescue is still considered to the best ever in Coast Guard history. Some of the things they went through were astounding.

I did not know a thirty-six foot boat could actually go through part of a seventy foot wave, and come out okay on the other side. Plus all four rescue workers stayed on the boat while they were under water. That alone in The Finest Hours was amazing to see. As well as putting too many men on their boat, and finding their way back to port in the dark with no compass.

There are a few words here and there that some families may not appreciate. There is also peril, and death in The Finest Hours. I understand the peril had to be shown so the heroism looks as good as it did. Out of all the rescue movies I have seen in my life, The Finest Hours is one of the best. It is neat to see a movie where men rise to the challenge, and save those in need.

There is some cool bonus content on the Blu-ray of The Finest Hours. They are Against All Odds The Bernie Webber Story, Brotherhood, Two Crews, What is your Finest Hour?, The Finest Inspiration The U.S. Coast Guard, and Deleted Scenes. The deleted scenes had not been finished so they were rough. Against All Odds The Bernie Webber Story is my personal favorite.
