“From Ruggero Deodato’s Waves of Lust (1975) to Phillip Noyce’s Dead Calm (1989), terrible things can happen on a three-hour cruise. The latest film to set sail under similarly treacherous conditions is Rob Grant‘s highly entertaining Harpoon, a fun-loving but mean-spirited ride on the open water that delivers fast, satisfying thrills. —  At a brisk 83 minutes the film doesn’t waste a frame. Sharply believable dialogue and unexpected story beats keep things moving even after the yacht comes to a standstill, and we begin to feel not only the physical confines of the boat but also the quickly unwinding strands of friendship and sanity. — See it before your next boating trip with the people you call friends.” – Rob Hunter / Film School Rejects
