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.

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.
