This movie is LOUD. Hans Zimmer is back with the church organ he used in Interstellar. If half a movie experience is sound then in this movie it’s three quarters. So many times the emotional content is transmitted by the sound, rather than the visuals.

As for the acting, the only actor I knew was Kenneth Branagh. He spent most of his time standing on a pier explaining the plot. The best character was Mark Rylance, who was really good in Bridge of Spies and here is a boat Captain.
