Storyline

Some unknown maniac is threatening a navigation company to blow up one of its luxury transatlantics, the "Britannic", now in high sea with 1200 passengers. He is asking for a £500,000 ransom, otherwise the 7 bombs aboard will explode. An experienced anti-bomb squad is sent to the "Britannic", but although all the bombs are located, a very high skill level will be necessary to dismantle them. Perhaps that task is impossible...

Trivia

The film was shot mainly aboard a real ocean liner. The Hamburg had recently been sold by its German owners to the Soviet Union. Before the Soviets took delivery of the liner, they rented it to the film company. The liner was painted in the livery of a fictional shipping line, very similar to the livery used by the Soviet Morpasflot line, and renamed the Britannic. Advertisements were run in British papers, soliciting extras who would take a lengthy cruise in the North Sea for free, but with the knowledge that the ship would actually seek out the worst possible weather, as the story demanded seas too rough for the lifeboats to be lowered, trapping the passengers on board.

Goofs

Juggernaut tells Porter that there are seven 50-gallon drums of Amatol on the ship, 7000 pounds total. This would mean each drum has to contain 1000 pounds of explosives. Amatol is a dry pressed or cast mixture of TNT and Ammonium Nitrate. Drums of that size typically only hold about 250 to 400 pounds of dry chemical compounds depending on their density, plus we know the drums are not full since each has a sizable cavity in the middle as seen during the defusing.

Supt. John McCleod: Major. Sit down.
Major O'Neill: Thanks. Well now, who's been blowing up what?
Supt. John McCleod: What makes you think anyone has?
Major O'Neill: Well now, it can't be friendship eh? Or you wouldn't be dragging me away from my bedtime cocoa like this would you?
Supt. John McCleod: Right. I want to know who's active on the scene.
Major O'Neill: Ah yes. Well now, I'm not a grass, I don't point fingers. You must be pretty desperate, eh?
Supt. John McCleod: Yes I am. Lives at stake.

Juggernaut, A Superb Exercise In Building Tension,
9 March 2006 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

'Juggernaut' Or 'Terror On The Brittanic' As it's known elsewhere, Is a superb suspense drama, that takes place aboard a cruise ship that's en route to new york, Meanwhile a mysterious voice rings the ships managing director (Ian Holm),and demands a ransom of Five Hundered Thousand Pounds, If his demands are not met a bomb which is on board will inexplicably explode,

Enter Tony Fallon, (Richard Harris who is a naval expert who along with his assistant (David Hemmings) And Harris's team are quickly sent via navy airplane,to the ship,

Meanwhile Back on dry land Police detective (Anthony Hopkins) Has his fair share of bother,( his estranged wife who along with his two children are on board the liner),Hopkins Is slowly but surely,unraveling who is behind the threat,

Juggernaut,Has a superb all- star cast that also includes type cast sheriff character actor Clifton James,(Live & Let Die, Silver Streak) (Shirley Knight), as a lusty passenger who flirts with Captain Omar Sharif, Usual Lester Mainstay (Roy Kinnear), plays the eager to please entertainment director, Juggernaut, is finally available on DVD, MgM have done an admirably job presenting the film in a pristine 1.66.1 print.
