Description
In October 1991, a dying tropical hurricane from Bermuda collided with a cold front from the Great Lakes, resulting in a "perfect storm" of previously unknown destructive impact that resulted in 100-foot waves; tragically, the crew of a fishing boat was lost in the midst of the fearsome storm. Based on the best-selling book by Sebastian Junger, The Perfect Storm tells the story of the ship's brave and hard-working crew. Billy Tyne (George Clooney), captain of the Andrea Gail, hasn't had much luck finding catch on his most recent trips to sea, and with money short, he and his crew -- Bob Shatford (Mark Wahlberg), Dale Murphy (John C. Reilly), and David Sullivan (William Fichtner) set out again when they hear that the fish are running. Billy's hunch proves correct, but when the ship's refrigeration system goes haywire, they have to return to shore as quickly as possible before the fish spoil, sending them into the middle of the worst storm in history. The supporting cast includes Mary Elziabeth Mastrantonio, Diane Lane, Bob Gunton, and Karen Allen; Wolfgang Petersen, whose breakthrough film was the aquatic wartime drama Das Boot, directed. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Description
In October 1991, three raging weather fronts, one of them a powerful hurricane, combined in the North Atlantic to form the greatest storm in recorded history. Caught in the storm was the sword-fishing boat Andrea Gail. Billy Tyne is the sword-fishing boat captain of the Gail who is from Gloucester. Tyne is highly competitive, but has been stung by a string of poor outings. His crew is hardly back in port when he tells them he's going out again, even though it's October and the weather can turn ugly. Five join him. At first, they catch little, so they sail east, Tyne ignores the storm warnings behind him. Finally, the fish bite, but when the ice machine fails the men decide to try to head back with the catch that they have waited so long to get. Based on a true story of Sebastian Junger.
