The Sea Beast
If you like adventure movies on the open sea then the new animated movie from Netflix, The Sea Beast, is for you! Directed by Chris Williams, who already offered us two very good movies with Big Hero 6 and Moana, is delivering a new excellent movie! The storyline is very classical and proposes a hunt for sea monsters that will turn out to be not so bad and will expose a manipulation of the powerful people of this world. The art direction is really beautiful especially during the sea sequences and underwater shots. The rhythm of the story and the various characters are very well mastered. The look of the characters and the sea beasts is really interesting and the relationship between a young heroine, her mentor and a sea beast works very well and is really touching. The movie doesn’t try to revolutionize the genre or to be smarter than it is, its goal is to entertain us with an effective story and it succeeds very well in this goal! So get on board and prepare yourself for a great adventure at sea!
In an era when terrifying beasts roamed the seas, monster hunters were celebrated heroes – and none were more beloved than the great Jacob Holland. But when young Maisie Brumble stows away on his fabled ship, he’s saddled with an unexpected ally. Together they embark on an epic journey into uncharted waters and make history. From Academy Award winning filmmaker Chris Williams (Moana, Big Hero Six, Bolt), The Sea Beast takes us to where the map ends, and the true adventure begins.
