Sad Movie, Lots of Death
I thought this movie was amazing, though terribly sad. A tsunami overturns a cruise ship on New Year's Day, and a group of passengers band together to escape through the propeller hole of the boat. You see many people fall to their deaths, drown, or be burned to death. Bodies are bloodied with terrified looks on their faces. Intense peril, and characters come close to death many times with wounds all over.
Out of the main characters, 4 people die. One man falls down an elevator shaft, pierced by pieces of metal at the bottom before being crushed by the falling elevator. Another man nicknamed Lucky Larry is crushed by some large chunk of metal that fell from the ballroom. One of the most scared of the group of survivors, a stowaway named Elena, is caught on a wire while swimming through a vent. As she frantically tries to untangle herself, she hits her head on metal and falls unconscious. Within seconds, she drowns. In the end, a father must sacrifice his life to save the rest of the group: he swims down to the control room to turn off the propellers and ends up drowning in a terrifying scene. A little swearing, but not much.
Good for kids who are used to scary movies. Heartbreaking in many ways.
