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...

In the beginning of the movie, Juggernaut calls Porter to tell him about the bombs on board the ship. Juggernaut continues to speak in the present, but the visual is showing events from the future. First there is a visual of a written communication that there are bombs on the ship. Next there is a visual of the ship captain,calmly enjoying a conversation, appearing to be informed there are bombs on the ship. Next the crew searches and finds the containers with the explosives. Then Juggernaut still speaking in the present says that to prove he is serious, a sample explosion will happen "now" and the visual cuts to a couple of large explosions, throwing a couple of men in the air. Based on the timing of the present Juggernaut conversation, the large explosions would have occurred a long time before the opportunity for Porter to report to the ship that there are bombs on board and captain would have been made aware of the problem by the unexpected and large explosions.

Will you tell me the truth, if I ask you a question?
Personal, business, or just plain silly?
[Corrigan nods in the affirmative
Have you ever been unfaithful to me?
You know if I chose to lie I could do so with remarkable dexterity? You know that don't you?
[she nods in assent
Since we met... yes.
[he takes her hand
Since we have been married, no... and if we are going to die... I rejoice in the fact that we're going to die together.
