The Ark Of Lilburn: Review

The Ark Of Lilburn: Review

Somewhere in Georgia, there lays a large boat that was built inside the building as a testament to what could be achieved. There are problems with its existence though, mainly those being that the boat is 200 miles from sea and Porter Steel Inc conducts its business in there and they’re running out of space.

So, the time has come to finally remove the ship from the bottle and to try and get it where it needs to be. It’s just a case of whose ideas will float best, Cole’s or his father Lowe’s.

The Ark of Lilburn is a documentary about a large boat built in the most unlikely of places that has had its time. Partnering father and son, the documentary is also about the relationship between Cole and his father and the many and varied differences that they have. Everything from personal issues to the generation gap is driving them apart, but their shared goal is what could bring them together.

There’s also the case of Pat, the owner of a house moving company that Cole employs in order to get the boat moving. Derisibly called ‘ponytail’ by some of the older members of the Porter Steel crew, he may turn out to be an even bigger wedge in the divide on how to make the impossible happen.

The documentary itself talks a little about the company and the hard times they’ve been through and the relationship between father and son. However, the bulk of it is taken up by actually moving the boat from its home.

This is something which may disappoint people looking for a heart-warming story of a father and son reaching a common goal. Although it may delight audiences who love watching those shows where moving large vehicles is the focus. Also, for those not too interested in how they are going to move the boat out of the building, there’s plenty of music to keep them entertained.

Unfortunately, this feels like a way to make it more interesting than it is though. A moment that’s particularly highlighted by copywrite friendly Mission: Impossible music being played over some men shooting explosives in a lake for some reason. At the end the family achieve their goal and there are some funny and warm moments along the way, but a little more balance between engineering and family moments would have helped.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
