* VindicatedByHistory: When the film came out, many critics were polarized as to what to think of the split 6-story-line arc, the strange make-up work, and the borderline New Age-esque philosophy of the film. As the years pass, it seems like the movie has done nothing but gain ground in its stature, being viewed as a masterpiece. Many critics that disliked it on its first viewing watched it again, saw the rewards of multiple viewings, and changed their mind. It's still a slow process for this film, though, with some people still finding it stilted and pretentious.

* DoubleStandard: People who criticize the YellowFace aspect of the movie rarely even mention the fact that non-white actors change their race too.
** Or that all of the Polynesian characters are played by African or African American actors (perhaps to make the slavery parallels more apparent)

* ItGetsBetter: Though the first twenty minutes or so of the film are hard to follow, it becomes easier to comprehend the non-linear stories after you get to know all of the protagonists.

* HilariousInHindsight: Timothy talks about Creator/HermanMelville and ''Literature/MobyDick'' in the beginning of his story. Fast-forward to 2015, the film adaptation of ''In the Heart of the Sea'' stars Creator/BenWhishaw as Herman Melville.

* RewatchBonus: The film is loaded with little touches and {{Foreshadowing}} you'll probably miss on the first go around. On top of that, some viewers found themselves having different opinions after watching it second time. Creator/MarkKermode outright called the film a failure (albeit an honorable one) on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKVfpRLfWOc his first viewing]] but on his [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n66GotwXN9I second viewing]], he found a new appreciation for it.
