Entertainingly laughable 70s disaster flick full of hysterical women and gruff manly men trying to escape a capsized ship. Hackman and Borgnine butt heads alpha male style saving the stereotypical damsels in distress as their shed their clothes at strategic intervals. Good fun, and a damn sight more entertaining than bloody Titanic.

This is a movie I have loved since I was a kid. Skip the first ten or fifteen minutes of the movie though and go straight to the New Years Eve party. Great story of survival, great acting and I think good effects for a film made in 1972. One of my all time favorite guilty pleasures. Avoid remake at all costs.

A very intense and enjoyable adventure thriller. Unlike the remake; this delivers some extraordinary performances by Gene Hackman, Shelley Winters and Ernest Borgnine.
