She dated the cop who saved her but broke up with him because he was constantly putting his life in danger.

But she eventually learns that he works for the same unit that the other guy worked for and is also addicted to danger. She wants to break up with but he surprises her with a cruise. She agrees to go. And he's planning to propose to her. But when he notices another passenger act peculiar, he can't help but try to find out what's up with him. He's Geiger, a computer man who designed the ship's systems, who was fired. He then takes over the ship's systems and sets it on a course that will send it into a tanker. Alex tries to stop him.

two thumbs down!
17 September 2001 | by djlatino69See all my reviews

this was one of the worst action movie I ever saw.First of all,I never heard of a guy named Jason patric and I was quiet dissapointed because Keanu Reeves was'nt there,there was'nt much action in it.This was like a titanic movie.You only see people running around,screaming like maniacs and dying on the ship that was going really fast.I give this movie a 3/10.
