The story opens with a flash back to a luxury ocean liner in the early 60s.There is a grand ball being held on deck when someone flips a switch and a guy wire tears into everyone's bodies,killing them all.The only survivor is a young girl.
Fast forward to present day and a crack crew of salvagers get a tip from an airman who has spotted a large ship adrift in the Bering Strait.They investigate its last known location and find it;in fact they literally bump into it.They go aboard and start a sweep of the interior.Part way along one crewman goes through the floor and is pulled back up by another,who briefly sees a little girl standing on the floor below.Shrugging it off they all continue to investigate.Along the way they discover a hug cache of gold and decide to forget salvaging the ship.When they try to leave,their salvage ship blows up,killing a crewman.From here on,things get desperate for the crew.They decide to float the ship to the nearest port but spirits within the ship start showing themselves.The young girl seen briefly earlier now makes herself known to one of the crew.The captain of the salvage team enters the cabin of the ships captain,and he appears to him.He shows him a bit of the back story to what lead to the crews deaths.It seems they picked up one survivor from a sinking liner,along with the gold.The survivor looks alot like the airman who put them onto this ships location and is aboard with them now.Read more ›
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 ›
More fun is the opening number Senza Fine which, judging by the posing of the busty singer, must be Italian for "Get a Load of These" (you'll get that when you watch it)
Some obvious problems with the film include:"Dodge" enunciates like a community theater judge, "Munder" is accent is alterantely British and American, and "Murphy" went on about how he'd been at sea a long time, how the sea does strange things, how the sea gives you an opportunity, blah blah blah.
Didn't I say I liked this film? Yes I did. All of these things
add to the charm.
If nothing else, you have to see the opening mass bisection. It is stand alone in both its horrific nature and dark humor. Half the team that put Army of Darkness together worked on it. Very little CGI, mostly cunning camera work and rubber corpses. Excellent!!!
It starts off very much like a cheap and tacky soap opera, judging by the severely dodgy music and even dodgier curly and PINK font on the credits! I was quite shocked at this, as this isn't your stereotypical way to display all the lovely people who were involved in a movie. And definitely not in PINK!
Starting off in 1962, we're soon transported forward in time to the present day, a tried and tested trick in films these days. We're introduced to Gabriel Byrne, the appropriately named "Murphy" - even though it makes me think of Jack Nicholson's character in One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest.
Full of scary ghosts, and a bratty little girl, who keeps appearing alive and scaring Julianna Margulies shipless. Either I didn't get it, or it never really explains why all the other characters on the ship are dead, and she appears seemingly alive, although she is a ghost. I probably didn't get it, knowing me.
A lot of scenes featuring the ghost ship and other certain parts seem stolen from another great film about a ship - Titanic of course. One particular scene at the end, where Julianna Margulies is lying on a piece of wreckage, is very similar to Kate Winslet lying on a piece of wreckage! The whole storyline made little bells start ringing, as it's the story of the Marie Celeste (the ship which disappeared and then reappeared, with no crew or passengers on it), just extended. Murphy even mentions the Marie Celeste during the movie.
The finale is just simply unsatisfying.Read more ›

I was hoping for a much better Blu Ray copy. I have seen the movie in SD and there is very little difference between the two. I rate the Blu Ray quality 2stars.Published 14 months ago by derek holstein
