Shattered City, an epic two-part mini-series, dramatizes a compelling piece of Canadian history. It is the story of how a tragic incident at the height of the First World War became a living metaphor for the worldwide conflict, and how Halifax arose from the ashes after severe destruction and devastation. In the early hours of December 6, 1917, the Mont Blanc, a French-owned freighter loaded to the gunnel's with thousands of tons of TNT, collided with a Belgian relief ship and exploded in the Halifax Harbour. The explosion was so vast that it killed more than 2,000 people, injured 9,000 more and completely flattened two square kilometers of northern Halifax. The series settles mostly on one family, the Collins, who's eldest son Charlie, a captain in the Royal Canadian Army, who tries to find the rest of his family including his fatally injured father, as well as his mother, and other siblings among the rubble, and later finds himself as a lawyer defending the Mont Blanc's captain, Le ...

It's based on a true event - but NOT a true story.
While this movie, and The Perfect Storm, and many others about war, ships and whatever else may be BASED on true stories and events...they are NOT true stories.
As there was NOT always somebody in every location at every second to document the event and the speeches and actions that people did, much of this story is fiction.
I found the movie interesting, that's for sure.
I found it a good insight to the event with a basic understanding to the incident...but it is still partially fiction.
What did impress me very much was that a film of this magnitude, a huge cast, a huge set, special effects and locations can be filmed for only 10 million dollars while a movie which takes place in very few locations with very few actors, few effects, few sets and much less than this film had will be shot for three or 4 times the budget.
Whoever worked the finances on this movie should be in public office to deal with the finances the Canadian and Provincial Governments budget problems.
They obviously know how to control the spending of money to the extreme.
Make-up, set design, acting and everything else was great too.
I am just overly impress with the people behind the cash flow...they really know how to spend the money, so that every cent is made to work.
