Goofs

Although the film is supposedly set in a flooded London, all the footage shot along the Thames, shows the water levels at a perfectly normal level. This is most evident when we see the Thames flood barrier, which is always shown open. (The barrier was built in the early 80's to protect many London boroughs from rising sea levels) See more »

Split Second, all it takes to like this film.
25 January 2004 | by spanky_bozSee all my reviews

This is one of those films you see on ITV at 2.20am Thursday morning. Its consigned to forever be overlooked, stepped on and pushed away. But it's also a b-movie of extraordinary magnitude. A mix of horror, action, breasts(Kim Cattral's, not Rutger Hauer's!) and witty one liners. It never seeks to be better than it is, and in doing so is all the better for it.

With a name like Dick Durkin in the credits, you know you're in for a treat. True, the ending crumbles somewhat(kinda like monty python + holy grail i thought), but the rest of the film is low budget gold. The use of London is great, and the supporting characters such as Cattral and Pete Postlethwaite lend some gravitas to the movie also.

Its a fun way to spend a few hours if you dont have the company of a good women.

Any film where a police officer can call a guard dog a 'dickhead' has to worth it's weight in platinum....

Remember....if you're gonna watch it, be sure to get some BIGGER F**KING GUNS!!!!!!!
