The two-way radios used in various scenes show all of the crew communicating, even though the antennas shown on the radios are using different bands. Some radios have an antenna used with the 400mhz band and others with the 800mhz band. The 800mhz band is almost exclusively used with repeaters and require the radio to be within a few miles of a tower. Although 800mhz radios can be used "radio to radio" they are very expensive and would be useless on the open seas. See more »
I can't hold her much longer, Murph. Port bow is heeling. She's taking on way too much water.

The opening logos are tinted brown, and the typical Warner Bros. logo is instead an intentionally chintzy 60s style logo. All this ties into the infamous cruise ship opening. See more »
The film was released in Germany in both its uncut form (rated "Not under 18") and in an edited version ("Not under 16"), which misses many gory shots (i.e. from the wire scene in the beginning, the squashed diver or the "hooked up" singer). For commercial reasons most cinemas showed the cut version. See more »

This films best bits are in the special effects and those moments when you jump out of your seat. The opening sequence lulls you into a false sense of calm, from then on its guess the scenario. The viewer is always two steps ahead of the actors but, for the most, grips you nevertheless. The special effects are especially good and the acting, although no top-notch stars are evident, is not bad. The end is a real twist. Better to watch this than many others I could mention, certainly worth the video rental and a pizza.
