Ishmael and a few of his buddies get together for a weekend fishing trip. Captain Ahab reminisces about the big one that got away from him. The captain shares a drink with the boys and they go fishing to catch the big one. Typical guy stuff.

Fairly serious messing with the book. An attempt to add to Ahab's character and background, but it does not work well. (To be fair, adapting the book to a film would be impossible.) The addition of a relationship between Ishmael and Ahab seems to be used to try and fill in the expositions on whaling that make up much of the book. The CGI whale is so lamentably fake that it is hard to take any scenes with it seriously. (They should have just stuck with the poorly defined white shadow in the water: *that* looks seriously creepy.)

Too "creative" for someone who knows the book. Too boring to be an action film. If you want to see a movie that parallels the book watch the 1956 version with Gregory Peck. Just know that you have to be familiar with the story of Ahab and Ishmael from the Bible to fully understand the book.

overall good cinematography and casting, but just plain boring - my guess is that's the books fault.
