Fisherman's Friends (2019) Reviews

  • A good film that's enjoyable and easy to watch, with plenty of fun sea shanties and sailor humour..

    sbweightman2019-03-15

    It's a good film that is enjoyable and easy to watch, but it doesn't really do anything to stand out. The characters are likable and story is told well with a good representation of the lives of the fishermen and their journey to fame, but the drama at the end doesn't quite feel right. Predictable, but the sea shanties are fun to listen to and the humour is as you'd expect.

  • Charming, gentle comedy that is well worth your time

    rbaylis2019-03-17

    This is nice gentle comedy that plays out pretty much as you'd expect but that's not to disparage it in any way because it delivers precisely what you'd want it to. The real life personalities on which the story is based will be able to distinguish historical fact from liberties taken for the sake of the narrative of course. The audience knows that happens but that doesn't take anything away from the charm of the film. Had it played out a little less conventionally and a few of the supporting performances been sharper I'd have rated it a 9. There's some nice humour that stems naturally from the tight knit community friendships when an outsider comes into their lives, and some truly wonderful harmonies in the singing of those shanties. I'm not a folk song enthusiast but there's no denying the music is resonant and lyrical. Definitely one I'll add to my collection on Blu-ray because I think it has repeat viewing potential as one of my 'feel good' film collection.

  • What a pick me up this was.

    Sleepin_Dragon2019-03-18

    Every year some British gem pops up in the cinema, destined to be added to my blu ray collection, a film guaranteed to lift the spirits for years to come. This is 2019's feel good film, yes you know the story, and yes you can figure out every possible turn even if you don't, but it's just such a lovely movie. We get one man's journey of self discovery and realisation of what's important, and we get the story of ten fishermen, who's talent is harnessed against all odds. What an assembled cast, Daniel Mays, David Hayman, and of course the wonderful Maggie Steed, but it's the poker faced James Purefoy who stands out, he is marvellous. It has fun moments, funny lines, serious elements, and of course several heart warming scenes. All in all, it's a winner. 8/10

  • An Enjoyable Feel Good Movie

    sealswheels2019-03-17

    We were looking for a film to watch at the local cinema, read the overview and thought we would give this one a go. It pretty much turned out exactly as we expected - Not a 10 out of 10 film, but a feel good movie that was well worth watching. I wont go into details and risk a spoiler but it is a good mix of drama and comedy. Plenty of laughs, a bit of romance and a nice story that is based on real life events. If you fancy a night out with a movie that's entertaining and an easy watch give Fishermans Friends a go.
