Timely, yet terrifying, this movie predicts the unthinkable. When a raging storm coincides with high seas it unleashes a colossal tidal surge, which travels mercilessly down England's East Coast and into the Thames Estuary. Overwhelming the Barrier, torrents of water pour into the city. The lives of millions of Londoners are at stake. Top marine engineers and barrier experts Robert Morrison (Robert Carlyle), his ex-wife Samantha "Sam" Morrison (Jessalyn Gilsig), and his father Professor Leonard Morrison (Sir Tom Courtenay), have only a few hours to save the city from total devastation. A real probability in a real location. It is not a question of if, but when London floods.Written by

Evacuation to a height of over one hundred fifty feet above sea level for London would be to areas of Hampstead in the north, Shooters Hill to the southeast, Biggin Hill to the south, and Richmond Hill to the southwest, all with sea levels double the height of the Thames Barrier, and all within five miles of the Thames. Assuming people casually walk three miles per hour, evacuation by foot would be less than two hours. See more »
In flight scenes involving the Tornado GR4 it is plainly only carrying 2 fuel drop tanks and nothing else. If was sent to destroy the Thames Barrier it should be carrying air-to-ground missiles. See more »
I only watched the movie because Mr. Carlyle was playing in it. Even he played badly. The entire film felt like someone intended it to be a mini series and they were forced to cut it to pieces in order to make it last only 100 minutes. The scenes are going one after another at what I hoped was an alert pace but turned out to be just bad (or forced) editing.
I was actually looking forward to see a British disaster movie, one that would be a good one, not like those Hollywood violin pieces. It was a disastrous film alright, with every possible cliché taken from all the American movies of the genre, but lacking in the directions where US productions shine: editing.
Bottom line: avoid. It is not funny, it is not emotional, not intelligent and not thrilling. Just plain boring.
