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.
The little girl further enlightens them as to what happened,as the man they picked up encouraged the original crew to mutiny so they could claim the gold for themselves.It is this entity that has kept the crew and passengers souls there since the incident that killed them and he is after this salvage crew now.One by one the salvage crew falls by the way side until there is only one survivor,who has to confront the evil entity.We learned that this thing works for Satan and uses the ship to collect souls for his masters.The last survivor,after a struggle,manages to sink the ship and free the souls from bondage.Adrift in the ocean the survivor is eventually rescued.Sitting in an ambulance near the dock side,she spots some of her old friends loading boxes(presumably the gold boxes)onto the ship,followed by the self same entity she thought went down with the ship.
I thought the ending was a bit of a question mark,not making alot of sense,but other than that the story,on the whole,was pretty credible.All do a fine job in the acting department and it was well directed and edited.After having lots of exposure from Xena:Warrior Princess as Caesar,Keith Urban did this movie just after Xena ended,and just before he co-starred in the epic trilogy Lord of the Rings.Urban is now a rising star in such films as Judge Dredd and Star Trek.It is good to see Keith is doing so well.
Technically speaking the film is in its w/s a/r of 1:85:1 and is clear and crisp.Extras abound here,and they include:three featurettes,a ships tour,a music vid,a the trailer and enhanced features for your PC.
In conclusion Ghost Ship is a perfect movie to get the popcorn out for,if you're looking for a good scare.It is not perfect but it generally satisfies over all.3 1/2-4 stars.
,its a funny role for gabriel bryne as the salvage crews captain,no aliens,hightech cgi or monsters here but overall a good watch.
