2. What the heck happened at the end in the shot-up trawler? it was too blurry underwater. It seemed like Alex attacked Gibson and kept him from the ladder? Wikipedia says instead that Gibson caught his ankle in a chain and drowns?
Alex hit him on the shoulder signaling Gibson to come with them. It just so happens when Gibson was following behind Alex he got his ankle tangled in a rope.
Did we not watch the same movie?

I watched it last night on IMAX Laser. I didn't watch any teaser/trailer/TV spot/prologue or even listen to the soundtrack. Other than the historical background, the only thing I knew about the movie was the 3 timelines and that it had very little dialogue.
Let's start with my experience at the end of the movie. I was driving back on the freeway a little before midnight. Not too many cars, but there was construction going on and the width of the lanes was reduced to add a new lane. I was playing supermarine track in the background as well.. God! I never felt so claustrophobic driving through that section. And that's when I realized the movie had a far more impact on my senses than I thought.
Regarding the movie itself, the others have covered all the key things. Amazing score, sound design, cinematography, cutting between the three timelines etc. I'll be surprised if it doesn't win the Oscars for sound editing and mixing. The best I've heard in a movie. It was also the most intense experience I've ever had.
I felt Fionn didn't act well. He had the same expression throughout and the dialogue delivery in certain scenes paled in comparison to Styles. I know he was trying to show fear and how scared he was, but there was something about him that didn't come through for me. That was my only gripe about the movie. I'll be watching it again on regular 70MM on Sunday.
