Luckily for The Finest Hours, Chris Pine commands his way to a great performance. Perhaps it's most appreciable because it is not the typical charismatic role we've come to know from Pine. It's very different from any of his recent work. Instead of charming his way out into the Atlantic, Pine's Webber subtly and humbly rounds up a team, all the while trying to find his own confidence and following orders. Much like Webber's real-life heroics, Pine's performance is something to be admired, even if the script rarely gave him chances to shine.
