Now I don't want to insult anyone's intelligence here (that's the film's job) but if you're expecting an intelligent and psychologically penetrating reinterpretation of the original source material you've come to the wrong place. (Just look at the DVD cover: it tells you everything you need to know about this turkey.)
Buuuuuut(!), if you're a fan of Melville's work and - more crucially - have a sense of humour then you could do a hell of a lot worse than this travesty. There's a fantastic drinking game for English Literature students in this movie. (Rennee O'Connor's opening line, "Call me Michelle"; the remote Typee atoll and the grave of Father Mapple; the nuclear missile 'Fedallah'; etc)
If you want the definitive film version of 'Moby Dick', check out John Huston's magnificent 1956 film. If you want to see all the bits Huston left out, check out Franc Roddam's impressive 1998 TV mini-series with Patrick Stewart. When the takeaway Pizza arrives and your third beer calls, check out this production. Think of it as knowing homage rather than dumbing down, otherwise you'll go crazy. Trust me, I KNOW.
For all of its fakeness, Moby Dick is really a sight to behold - over six hundred feet long, battle-scarred, and bristling with the remains of dozens of harpoons over the years. Even a military submarine is no match for this beast of the sea - and that gets us to Ahab. Having seen the whale first-hand back in 1969 and blaming him for the loss of his leg, this young navy man overcame his physical handicap (and the fact that he is pretty much insane) to rise to the command of a nuclear submarine in today's American fleet - a submarine he personally refortified and redesigned as the final step in his master plan to hunt down and kill the whale that took his leg. Now he's gone rogue, telling his crew that he has orders to hunt down Moby Dick and boat-napping "whale language" expert Dr.Read more ›
Updating the Moby Dick tale had potential I suppose, but they made this whale so ridiculously gigantic that any semblance of reality flies out the porthole the first time you set eyes on the great mass of blubber. If it wasn't for the ever-gorgeous Renée O'Connor (who still looks as hot as she did in Xena!), I would probably have rated this a lone-star movie.
Disengage brain, get a few beers in and Renee O'Connor in some skimpy swimwear (and a big whale) may just about hold your interest for 90 minutes!
How did Ahab rise from an enlisted sonar technician to becoming the Captain of the Pequad? I think after losing his leg, he would of had a medical discharge. The movie stars Renee O'Connor (whale scientist) of Xena fame who wears a bikini top in the beginning, sporting her new set of love handles. She manages to do some decent acting amidst a sea of bad actors and stolen lines from the original "Moby Dick". Like Supercar, Moby Dick appears to be at home both on land, sea, and in the air. Ahab is obsessed with finding the white whale that took his leg while he was an enlisted man and goes rogue.
There are worse film out there, and most are produced by Asylum.
