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...

Quotes

Corrigan: Would you mind telling me why we're traveling in circles?
3rd Officer Jim Hardy: In circles, sir?
Corrigan: Yeah. A little while ago the waves were coming from the front of the ship, now they're coming from the side.
3rd Officer Jim Hardy: Well, it's that kind of sea, sir. North Atlantic, you know.
Corrigan: A half hour ago the sun was on the port side, now it's on the starboard - is it that kind of sun?
3rd Officer Jim Hardy: They must be checking the steering gear - just routine.

Review of film "Juggernaut"
22 December 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This movie is an all time classic. It is one of those films where the suspense keeps you on the edge of your chair right up to the last part of the film. It is about a expert who makes bombs as he enjoys taking people's lives. ( Freddie Jones). 7 Bombs that are encased in steel drums have been placed aboard the Atlantic cruiseliner "Britannic." These bombs have many booby traps set within them and the government and police call in a team of Bomb Disposal experts which is headed up by Fallon. (Richard Harris) and his counterpart Charlie Braddock, (David Hemmings)

A MUST see film with suspense around every corner.
