Like many movies these days I think that it suffered from a lack of editing and went on too long. Also problematic was the acclaim that the movie received before I watched it - not sure why it was nominated for the best flick Oscar. And this is not a movie for young children because of the scenes of drowning (albeit computerized) animals and tense scenes on the high seas. Lastly, I did feel that the plot wasn't too believable.
All that said, I did like the movie and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★.
