John Putch (2000)

15 Certificate


Our Score
With an Oscar for Affliction on his mantelpiece, you'd think James Coburn no longer needed to accept parts in nonsense like this. Everything about John Putch's disaster movie reeks of mediocrity. Special ops sailors are assigned to a cruise ship to protect a VIP's daughter, only for the unit to end up performing sub-aquatic heroics after a nuclear warhead capsizes the liner during a terrorist attack. Much of the footage has a "bought by the foot" feel about it, while the performances range from caricatured to crass. Tosh on a titanic scale.


A Navy officer expects to take it easy when he's assigned to protect a politician's daughter on a cruise - little realising a nuclear explosion is about to put a damper on his holiday. Action drama, starring Costas Mandylor, James Coburn and Finola Hughes.
