The film had a tortuous production with Richard Lester ("A Hard Day's Night") ultimately directing a very different film than originally envisioned. The film was made largely onboard the Soviet cruise ship "TS Maxim Gorkiy," a former German liner (the "TS Hamburg") which was between owners and was chartered with extras and sent intentionally to find the worst seas possible for dramatic effect in the North Sea (a notoriously rough area.) It is easily identifiable among ship enthusiasts due to its extremely novel funnel. (She was scrapped in India in 2009.) While the film ended up looking splendid (I'd like to give it 4.5 stars) and was certainly more credible than most contemporary American disaster flicks ("The Poseidon Adventure," etc.) it still has some clichés (McLeod's family is on the ship, Brunel's mistress is too, etc.) that could have been done away with, while a few situations are plainly ridiculous (a hungry kid wandering into an abandoned galley winds up in the middle of a bomb disarming, etc.) Most of the main actors do an excellent job with the material, though Harris is occasionally a bit over the top, though I suppose it's in keeping with his character.
The DVD comes with one extra, a trailer.
I thoroughly enjoyed watching "Juggernaut" again. It's a distinctly British take on the nautical thriller, and while not as fast-paced as many later disaster flicks, is vastly more cerebral and entertaining than most, credit for which largely goes to Lester, Hopkins, and Sharif.
It's all long gone now, but the exterior and interior shots of the ship during the movie were quite nostalgic. She had a very singular funnel.
Don't get me wrong...it's a good suspenseful thriller as well..with a great cast, particularly Harris. Recommended.
Well written story.
THE STORY: A terrorist calling himself "Juggernaut" contacts the owners of a huge British cruise ship once it's in the mid-Atlantic, informing them he's planted seven bombs on board... and if they don't pay up by his deadline? BOOM! British government refuses to negotiate, instead airlifting an elite squad of commandos out to the ship to disarm the devices before disaster strikes.
THOUGHTS: Blind bought this purely due to the amazing cast. Richard (A Man Called Horse, Man In The Wilderness) Harris leads a stellar list of well-established (and a few soon to be major) stars. A very young Anthony Hopkins is among them; playing a Scotland Yard detective who has a very personal stake in the crisis: his wife & kids are aboard the marked-for-death ocean liner. There's some good stuff here but unfortunately the film meanders along without much of sense of urgency; even the ship's passengers seem rather indifferent to the news that the vessel they're on will blow up & sink in less than 24 hours. There's also a soapy subplot involving the Captain (a seemingly very bored Omar Sharrif) and a female passenger which pretty much goes no where. This was done, I suspect, in order to make the role of the Captain large enough to secure Sharrif's talents, although they're entirely wasted here. The romance was also likely an attempt to entice female moviegoers into buying a ticket. The film switches to this tedious, go-nowhere yawn-fest whenever the action lags, which it does a disappointing amount in this movie. Given the initially exciting-sounding plot description, this motion picture should (and could) have been a high-pressure firecracker of a film. Instead, it's more of a damp sparkler. Scenes with Richard Harris talking himself through the nerve-wracking diffusal of one of the explosives packages helps keep the film from being a total waste. He's great, as usual, but when he's not on screen you'll find yourself frequently checking your watch, waiting impatiently until he is.
THE BLU-RAY: Kino-Lorber's release of JUGGERNAUT arrives on Blu-ray looking & sounding respectable. Nothing to rock the house as far as audio & video, but a clean, crisp picture and clear, level sound. No extras except a copy of the film's theatrical trailer.
