      Audience Member For a movie as colossal as this (at least it's supposedly colossal) the message is too naive and uncomplicated. It doesn't have any intrigue, it's your boring textbooks in highschool. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member It was a major disappointment from my end because it had such potential. The major problem is that it didn't know whether it wanted to be serious or funny. The fact that it was also like a slow-burner didn't help. It does pick-up considerable towards the end but by then you're almost tired of waiting for something to happen. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Essentially a Marxist tract with a dated story line as exploited workers on a crab fishing and processing boat are trapped in an oppressive work environment and learn to rise up against their masters. At times comedic and other times brutal it was unable to transcend a simplistic premise. But it did make me hungry for crab. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member How can I express this feeling inside my heart? I can't say ''I like this movie very much'' as I don't like the ending that much. I thought something would happen afterward but nothing had happened.. :( Still I was impressed with the structure by SABU. His direction is very unique, and I am always attracted with it :) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member weird ass movie. crabby ship workers gets treated badly, wanna commit suicide but failed. enter some russian dancing, movie ends with buncha guys carrying union flags. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Clear messages with good storyline. But I cannot say it's a very stunning movie, as I expected before I watched it. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
