This seafaring tale of two scallop-fishing brothers and the struggles they face both out on the ocean and back on dry land has the promise of at-sea dramas like ‘The Perfect Storm’, but it falls woefully short. Hampered by an ultra-clichéd plot and groan-worthy dialogue, even the top-shelf cast (Ben Foster, Tommy Lee Jones, and Jenna Ortega) can’t keep this wreck afloat. Writer/director Brian Helgeland (‘42’, ‘Legend’) gives it his all, certainly, but this one should never have headed out.

1.5/5 stars
