All of the foregoing is simply to attest to my ability to size up the authenticity of the ship portrayal in this film (not to make a lot here of my few years of seafaring). The detail is well-nigh flawless!Read more ›
A huge passenger ship riddled with spooks is ripe for
salvage reward, easier said than done. One by one the
treasure hunters are tormented by evil...sea evil!.
Super slick production values, some tasty gore &
Karl Urban looking like Brad in World War Z (think it's Urban).
The picture quality's first rate, widescreen & fills all the screen
on a modern T.V. This release is uncut, as are most, all
except the German FSK16 release, apparently this one's cut,
the FSK18 is uncut though. Run time: 1hr 30min 35sec.
Extras: quite a few, check back of box, it's late-can't be typing all that!.
I think I can safely say that the opening scene of the movie is rather unforgettable, and I greatly admire the effect the moviemakers were going for here. Rarely does a movie purport to take out untold scores of people with one swift blow, and it is most unfortunate that a lack of commitment to this potentially extraordinary scene sets in motion the very doubts and misgivings some viewers have of the real meat of the story. The method of mass execution used in this first scene is pretty hard to accept scientifically, but the real problem comes in the form of some very obvious mannequins lying among the "dead." The filmmakers try to salvage the scene by having the victims take a few moments to figure out that they are quite dead, and that works for me; unfortunately, they take this too far and end up making what should be a glorious bloodbath look a little silly.
The real story here concerns the crew of a salvage boat hired to salvage a mysterious old ship that a pilot claims to have spotted in the Bering Sea. What they find is an Italian ocean liner missing for forty years, but the great riches they discover onboard lead not to the paradise on earth they fantasize about but rather its exact opposite.Read more ›

Definitely not for the squeamish this film. Apart from the scary bits there are the maggots and the rats.
No more hints.
