Goofs

There are several shots showing the ship propeller operating only partially submerged. This would be an extremely inefficient method of propulsion. See more »

Quotes

Henry Scott: Rummill, you're no sailor. You're like the rest of those panty-waists on luxury liners: cocktail parties, watercress sandwiches and drinking tea. That's your racket!
Capt. Edwin Rummill: Looks like it's going to be your brawn against my brain, doesn't it?
Henry Scott: Yeah, it does!
[He lunges at the captain, and a struggle ensues]

Forget the advertising tagline!
21 May 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Forget the advertising tagline (although Dorothy Dandridge is beautiful to look at)! This is a crisp little thriller, apparently fact-based, about a couple of malcontent seamen (Crawford and Whitman) who try to foment a mutiny against new captain Mason as a cover for a scheme to kill the entire crew and bring in the ship as salvage. Except for a rather abrupt ending, nicely done by the Stones.
