Trivia

The U-20 set was the original U-96 set used in Das Boot (1981). The Type U-19 of World War I and Type VIIC of World War II had similar internal dimensions. See more »

Goofs

When Prof. Holbourn and Avis first meet, he asks if the deck chair next to her is taken. Later, they are shown seated together in the dining salon. On the Lusitania, all seating arrangements in first class were pre-assigned (a process that continues on cruise ships in the 21st century), as were most deck chairs. It's unlikely that Holbourn and Avis would be suddenly supping together, or that Holbourn would be gauche enough to take another passenger's assigned deck chair, even if it was empty. See more »

Quotes

Prof. Ian Holbourn: I think that those of us who survived have well almost duty to those who those who didn't to find out why we where left so open to attack.

A really good docu-drama especially for the discovery channel
17 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

People always talk about Titanic this Titanic that, it was an accident waiting to happen. People died yes on that ship where it could have been averted. The Lusitania however, was the beginning and the end for the Germans and eventually lose World War One. The sinking of the ship was a barbaric act and no doubt a sad ending for those who died. Unlike the Titanic where there wasn't enough lifeboats, Lusitania had all the safety feature that was built into after Titanic like double hull and more then enough lifeboat for the passenger, but wasn't build to stop a torpedo.

The movie itself was really good. I'm surprise that guy from Mummy was in the movie and instead of being a comic relief, gave a very serious acting in the movie where he was a victim on the ship. The other people in the movie also showed the same and for a quality we expected in a docu-drama movie, the movie more the met my expectation. The sinking was very well done and was more sad then Titanic. Thank goodness there is none of this Jack and Rose crap in it.

Otherwise, a very well made movie and one that should be a reminder about how Lusitania became a pawn in the World War.
