The "at sea" parts o ths movie are very good and seem to follow a logical sequence, but the courtroom portions don't seem to flow as well. Good depiction of a true story, and Jeff Bridges does a good job, as usual, as a leader of men.

an interesting true story which is very watchable and enjoyable. Jeff Bridges does a good job in this movie, but it is not one that needs to be a permanent keeper, as watching it a few times will be enough.

A terrific coming-of-age movie!

"Jeff Bridges is very believable as Captain Christopher Sheldon, the skipper of the good ship Albatross. His mission is to teach a group of high school boys the way of the sea and of life. All of the boys have problems and, as written and portrayed, some are real heartbreakers. And director Ridley Scott has collected a handsome group of teen hunks to portray them. There is not a false note in any of their performances. Ryan Phillippe particular continues to surprise and impress me with his versatility. Whether it be the sensitive gay boy in T.V's "One Life to Live" or the overly confident and cocky jock of the film I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER he is always convincing. Phillippe is truly an actor that bears watching. Kudos also to John Savage as the ship's English teacher. It's nice to see this underrated actor try a different sort of role for a change.The cinematography is splendid but to appreciate it fully you must see a wide screen edition of the film. If not on DVD, perhaps there is a wide screen edition on tape somewhere. But the cinematography and sound are both worth buying a DVD player, if you haven't already done so, and purchasing this disc. This reviewer is always wary of films which are advertised as coming-of-age movies, but this one fits the bill. And everyone, including the skipper learns from their experiences. For that reason alone the film is film is worth owning. And who knows, you might just learn something from Captain Sheldon and crew of the Albatross! I know I did!"
One of the best films ever! Action packed!

"I think that White Squall is one of the best movies ever. Ryan Phillipe and Scott Wolf were the perfect picks to play the main roles. It tells the story of a group of boys who go on an adventure on an older ship for the summer. They travel the world. The great thing I think about this movie is it is a true example of what friendship really is. These boys come on the ship as total strangers, and end up as friends that would risk there lives for eachother. Belive me if there was ore than a five star rating, White Squall would surley get it! I think anyone who could direct such a wonderful film is a maraculus person with a heart of gold. Thank you, Ridley Scott, for showing the world what a real movie should be!"
Why does no one talk about this movie!?

"I don't get it! How can there be so many Ridley Scott movies that go unnoticed? Other mainstream directors like James Cameron and Steven Spielberg have basically recognition for every movie they've made, but with movies like White Squall, there is a forgotten element to what Ridley Scott has done with his career. White Squall is a gem of a movie that has gone unnoticed for too long. Jeff Bridges is excellent as are the rest of the actors. This is a story that will pull you in and is addictive. It's like a book you can't put down. The style of the movie is a little removed from Scott's more modern works, but it's definately him behind the camera. Enjoy this movie, no matter who you are."
