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...

EXCELLENT bomb movie
1 January 2009 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

Juggernaut is a terrific film - even now when I rewatch it I still don't know which of the seven bombs will or won't explode.

The setting on the boat and each of the metal barrels with their puzzles is a timeless plot.

It is clever without being pretentious, very exciting, and has just the right mix of military professionalism and human action to make this tick along.

If you have never seen it, do - it hasn't aged a bit. For those watching it again it will still produce chills without resorting to horror, or cheap kicks.

A classic well-constructed thriller that really delivers suspense and surprises - highly recommended.
