In the initial scene of the Argonautica Casino there can be seen some old Italian banknotes probably used to portrait an exotic foreign currency; their size is 2000 lire and 1000 lire. These were the smallest banknote sizes at the time, roughly equivalent to 1$ and 50c of 2013 - in 1998 the price of an Italian newspaper was 1200 lire. See more »
Orchestating a sabotage as depicted in the movie is not possible, as modern ships have several on-board computers to prevent, precisely, the case of one of them going offline to cause the whole liner go blind. Furthermore, Maritime law requires every vital of the ship - particularly communications - to have officers on guard at all times, and although Canton owns the ship, he is still a civilian and would not have unlimited access to it.

Full Scream Ahead..? Better than your average slick..!
I bought this DVD last week. I've watched it for the first time with some friends. I must admit, that must be some movie.. Here, director Stephen Sommers try to prove that if Aliens scared you.. Then this one will do worse.. Well, it did at times.. The whole plot sounds simple to me.. with these bunch of thieves coming on board this cruise liner, the Argonautica.. Only to find that the passengers have vanished. It's not 'til they realise that they up against something more deadly and it came from the bottom of the ocean.. We're not talking giant squids here.. Something more sinister..
Treat Williams played well as Finnegan. Famke Janssen, Wes Studi and the rest of the cast kept their end of the bargain with their performance. A really good film, full of one liners.. A few jokes.. This, that and the other..
7 out of 10!
