Movie Info

In 1875 Captain Matthew Webb, a retired merchant seaman, survived fierce winds, treacherous currents and multiple jellyfish stings to swim from Dover to the shores of France, a crossing that took almost 22 hours and spanned 39 miles. The English Channel would not be swum again for 36 years, and to this day more people have climbed Everest than successfully swum across the Channel.

Critic Reviews for Captain Webb

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

Sporadic handheld shots fail to lend a sexy modern edge, merely pointing up how unconvincing it all looks.

Some feats of courage and endurance don't necessarily translate well to the big screen.

August 10, 2015 | Rating: 2 | Full Review…

It's no big-budget extravaganza but anything that celebrates such historic British endeavour deserves a pat on the back.
