The Sea Beast

The Sea Beast ★★½

A pedantically woke script with few surprises and that really should have spurred a completely forgettable film. Except Chris Williams, whoever this guy is (okay he’s responsible for “Bolt” and “Big Hero 6,” both of which fall squarely in the “not bad” column), directs the hell out of what he was given, almost compulsively dropping in unexpectedly artful shots over and over again, elevating the source material to heights it was never meant to attain. I’m honestly eager to see what Williams does next.
