Goofs

When resting on the bottom, the crew are seen on the mess decks watching a movie. In real life, the non-essential crew would have been sent to their bunks and the ship would have been placed on reduced electrical load in order to preserve precious battery power. There would not have been any movies or cooked meals. See more »

Quotes

Capt. Paul Blanchard: Fourteen hundred and fifty feet! They really built this baby!

A Really Good Movie
6 September 1998 | by (Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie has non-stop action right from the first. The suspense and action combined keep you at the edge of your seat the whole movie. Charlton Heston is excellent as always and so is the rest of the cast. All action scenes are believable. This movie has everything going for it, and is worth the money to rent.
