The grandfather of films like Twister and the recent Dante's Peak, this disaster film follows a group of ten individuals, who attempt to escape from a capsized cruise ship before it sinks. Lead by a preacher (Gene Hackman), the group must dodge peril after peril, before they can finally reach the top of the ship (or bottom, considering what's happened to it).

Despite some clunky dialogue and dull moments at the beginning, this manages to suck you in with tense action and some decent performance (for this type of genre) by Hackman and crew. You can definitely enjoy it, just as long as you don't think about the plot too much.

My Rating = Three Stars
