Trivia

Gabriel Byrne replaced Brian Cox. See more »

Goofs

The ship is supposedly caught up in a rotating current in the Bering Sea. North of the equator, this would be moving the ship in a counterclockwise direction, driving its right (starboard) side into the rocky islands at the edge of the current. As shown, the ship's left (port) side is at risk, meaning that the ship is drifting in a clockwise rotation. This would be the norm south of the equator, where the movie was filmed. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Greer: I can't hold her much longer, Murph. Port bow is heeling. She's taking on way too much water.

Crazy Credits

The opening logos are tinted brown, and the typical Warner Bros. logo is instead an intentionally chintzy 60s style logo. All this ties into the infamous cruise ship opening. See more »

Tough call but...
10 November 2003 | by (Tampa, Florida) – See all my reviews

I would have to recommend this flick. Great idea, terrible script, fantastic special effects/art direction/& editing, wasted cast, & one truly excellent final scene: such a dichotomy! What they really should have done was chop it down to about an hour (excluding virtually every line uttered by the embarassing Latino stereotype called Santos for starters) and present it as one of those "Outer Limits" episodes on cable. It would then be a thrill ride from start to finish. Otherwise, it drags where it should accelerate. Rent it on DVD and fast forward thru the static parts.
