Description

Product Description

A suspense thriller about a husband and wife, recovering from a personal tragedy, who encounter a stranger while cruising their boat in the Pacific and become ensnared in a drama of mystery, high emotions and extreme danger.

Amazon.com

There are several occasions when this rousing Australian thriller from 1987 should have ended with a well-placed shot from a speargun or a stronger knot of rope, but you don''t think about these nit-picky details when you''re being scared out of your wits. In a role that catapulted her to international stardom, Nicole Kidman plays a young wife who''s joined her husband (Sam Neill) on a yachting trip to recover from the tragic death of their son. Far out to sea, they encounter a sinking ship with one survivor (Billy Zane, ten years before Titanic), but inviting him aboard turns out to be a very bad mistake. While Neill attempts to salvage the sinking boat, Kidman is fighting for her life against the psychotic Zane--a villain so creepy that you eagerly look forward to his demise. By the time that moment arrives director Phillip Noyce has resorted to a typical slasher-movie climax (proving that no boat should be without a flare gun), but until then Dead Calm is a nail-biting thriller that''s guaranteed to keep you in a state of nail-biting suspense. --Jeff Shannon

Additional Features

To accommodate the widescreen compositions on the open ocean, the DVD offers the film in its original 2.35:1 aspect ratio. --Jeff Shannon

The only good thing was Billy Zane''s perfect teeth and him getting a flare in the mouth because then I knew it was finally all over with. There goes all those years of orthodontics. Nicole Kidman looks like a rabbit and is the dumbest of them all in this movie. SPOILER ALERT: GRAB THE GUN NEXT TIME. This movie conflict could have been solved in 5 minutes.

Here''s a movie with strong performances and great cinematography in a setting that''s simultaneously claustrophobic and agoraphobic and really ought to be a gripping thriller but seems to be missing something. There isn''t much music (and when there is it''s rather subdued) and while I don''t know if more of it would''ve done the trick it probably wouldn''t have hurt to add a little bit more intensity. It''s a mostly solid movie that feels like it could''ve been more.

OK, serious stuff out of the way, here''s some random tidbits:
- The release date was 1989 (and copyright 1988) but you could call this the world''s first 90s movie. It looks like the 90s, is shot like it''s the 90s, feels like the 90s, and is filled with 90s stars.

- We get to see a very natural Nicole Kidman here. Very redhead, very curly-haired, very Australian.

- Wish I had something more interesting to say about Sam Neil aside from he looks exactly like he does in ''Jurassic Park,'' but hey, the guy''s a dependable presence.

- Billy Zane does well as the psycho stowaway, though it must be said his distractingly defined eyebrows do a lot of heavy lifting. Hell I daresay the man owes his career to those brows, whose edges are sharp enough Kidman had reason to fear them as much as anything else about Zane''s character. They''re on fleek, no doubt, but they''re so overly-perfect that it makes his appearance a little uncanny and serves the roles he plays (I myself have struggled with navigating between "everyone can see your unibrow" and "everyone can tell you shaved your unibrow" so I sympathize, Mr. Zane!).

- Fair warning that this movie begins with a 3-year-old literally flying through a windshield and while it''s obviously a dummy, it''s a surprising shot and can be potentially upsetting for viewers if it catches them off guard.

The Charles Williams noir classic by the same name is excellent, and I highly recommend it. This film is flawed in so many ways I don''t know where to start, but trust me, if you read the book you''ll understand. I do not recommend buying this film simply because it is so far from the original story, never develops any tension really, and has a horribly contrived Hollywood ending that just seems stuck on. Disappointing.

I''m not sure what it is about this film that hooked me. I remember renting this right after it came out on video (you know, VHS tapes...anyone remember those??). I thought it was slick, but curiously subdued. Much as Steven Spielberg had done years earlier with ''Duel'', director Phillip Noyce took a story and stripped it down to a bare-bones thriller. ''Duel'' was reduced to "man-vs-truck", and ''Dead Calm'' became "troubled couple-vs-deranged killer". A word of caution, a couple of spoilers ahead, although I don''t reveal how the film ends.

John (Sam Neill) and wife Rae (Nicole Kidman) take a trip on their yacht, yearning for isolation, solitude and a chance to heal after the catastrophic loss of their young son. This isolation comes back to haunt them later, as they appear to be in the middle of the ocean, and help is far away. After picking up a man in a rowboat (Billy Zane, in a eerily psychotic role), John is suspicious of the man''s story, and decides to investigate the damaged ship Zane escaped from, leaving Rae alone with the survivor. The film splits at this point, telling almost two different tales. Rae, who soon discovers Zane is certifiable, and John, who enters into his own struggle to survive, going almost beyond the point of human endurance to stay alive on a slowly sinking ship. The movie is almost two films in one, which adds to the suspense. As John tries to keep the damaged schooner afloat, Rae has to survive the unpredictable mood swings of a mentally disturbed killer, not to mention his romantic advances, while trying to rescue her hubby.

Again, this is a subdued film. I suspect Noyce was aiming for something like a Hitchcock effect, only barely missing the mark. Graeme Revell''s creepy, minimalist soundtrack matches perfectly with the scenic solitude of the open ocean. Just as Spielberg had done with Dennis Weaver in ''Duel'', who often found himself alone, driving through canyons and desert terrain, Kidman and Neill seem to be at the mercy of the open sea as much as the dangerous behavior of Billy Zane. Even though it''s never really established how far they are from land, it''s obvious there won''t be any police station or Coast Guard ship around the next corner.

The film is not without its issues. Rae is able to communicate with her hubby (although John can''t speak to her, thanks to his radio being damaged), but she never thinks to send out a distress call or SOS? And towards the end of the film, Hughie (Zane''s character) appears to be vanquished, and the couple appears to just carry on with their vacation...like nothing happened. Nicole has her sexy one-piece on, and Sam is making her breakfast and washing her hair. Right. I would have been making a bee-line for the nearest port or harbor.

The film is short on dialog, and the action may be lacking for some, but all in all, ''Dead Calm'' is a curious, well-crafted thriller. It''s amazing to me now just how young Nicole Kidman looked in this. A sweet, peaches-and-cream complexion, and looking even younger than she actually was (early 20''s). She looks, and sounds, like she just got out of high school. She has aged remarkably well. Sam Neill, an accomplished actor, is a bit one-dimensional in this...the stalwart Navy man trying to help his wife recover from their child''s death, but he played it pretty well. It was Billy Zane (the only American in the cast) who nearly steals the show as a dangerously unbalanced psychopath.

Those blokes down under occasionally pull off a cinematic gem, and this is one of them. It came as no surprise to learn this film was produced by Kennedy Miller Productions, who gave us the first two Mad Max movies. George Miller produced this just a few years after losing his long time partner, Byron Kennedy, who died in a helicopter crash in 1983.

John and Rae Ingram set off on the high seas to escape the death of their child, but they quickly enter troubled waters after rescuing a stranger from a sinking vessel in the 1989 suspense-thriller, DEAD CALM! Phillip Noyce directs based on the novel by Charles Williams, which keeps the tension high as a fearful Rae is left to defend herself using any means necessary against the madman who has left her husband to die out in the open water. Sam Neill and Nicole Kidman star as the quick-witted and resourceful couple in a pair of winning performances. They are trumped by a crazed Billy Zane, who''s wild-eyed insanity teeters between his loving infatuation for Rae and his mindless rage. Noyce brings his audience to the edge of their seats in a number of sickeningly tight shots that strike an immediate sense of fear and anxiety. The same can certainly be said for the claustrophobic scene in which Sam Neill is left to siphon air through a pipe as he attempts to escape from a sinking ship. The only major detractors are the lack of motive behind Zane''s madness, and an over-the-top ending that falls way beyond belief. DEAD CALM is an otherwise exciting and intense excursion in to psychological suspense!

One of Nicole Kidman''s first films & the one that Tom Cruise said made him want her for "Days of Thunder" a year later, & of course his wife, In this one we get a pre-"Jurassic Park" Sam Neill as her husband who has taken them out on a yacht to get over the loss of their son, & soon discover a boat adrift at sea with a lone survivor Billy Zane who is deranged & echoes the character he would play years later on "Titanic"....after trapping Neill on his sinking boat, he terrorizes Kidman by taking control of their yacht which results in a cat & mouse game between the two, as she tries to outwit him & save her husband with time running out, this is the kind of film where you know help isn''t coming from anywhere & it works as a neat thriller, this shows the star Kidman would become & it is when she looked her best, if you like thrillers, this is one to get.
