Trivia

Many new characters were added to this remake while only retaining a few of the original characters from the novel and film version. Some characters were simply renamed, others were dropped altogether. See more »

Goofs

The hole that is blown in the ship could not have turned the whole ship over. It would only have sunk the way Titanic had done, only by the stern instead of the bow. See more »

Quotes

Suzanne Harrison: How do you celebrate saving nine people when thousands have died?
Admiral Jennings: It's a miracle that anyone made it.
Suzanne Harrison: Hard to see any of this as a miracle. A bloody mess is what it is!

Waste of film
7 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a total waste of film and your time. What a dismal attempt to benefit from a classic disaster film. Top 5 reasons this film is a failure. One - Dylan Clarke video taping everything; Two - no real reason for the ship capsizing; Three - Sylvia Syms poor attempt at acting; Four - Amber Sainsbury another sad attempt at acting; Five - all the whimpering. John Putch should have walked away from this film from day one. Alex Kingston needed something to do after her departure from "ER" but this should not have been it. She has the potential to be one of the great dramatic actors of our day and I hope she will get better roles in the future. Dumbest line - "Remember we talked about plan B, this is it. - Alan Baldwin"
