Have you ever looked at someone in your life and wondered why you were friends with them? Besides laughing out loud, this thought crossed my mind while I watched Richie, Jonah, and Sasha interact. In fact, the film opens with Aristotle’s explanation of types of friendship.
Rob Grant’s new film, Harpoon, was a terrific add to the summer’s roster during my debut Fantasia Festival coverage from home. My review is still up for grabs, but I’ll just say here and now that this project is one of the more limber, energetic titles of the high seas suspense genre with Munro Chambers in one of two impressive performances making the rounds this year – Jovanka Vukovic’s Riot Girls being the other.
Fantasia Review: In Rob Grant’s HARPOON, A Boatload Of Long-Begotten Baggage And Bloodthirsty Betrayal
While most small-scale high-seas thrillers I’ve watched in recent years turned out to be a little too pedestrian for my tastes, Rob Grant’s own Harpoon proves itself a cut above others. Turbo Kid and Knuckleball star Munro Chambers has become one of the most upstanding performers in film today and he’s joined by an equally livening cast with Christopher Gray and Emily Tyra.
