Britannic (2000) starring Edward Atterton, Amanda Ryan

The Good

  • The sets and the costuming are very good.
  • The acting is mostly quite good. I’m a large fan of John Rhys-Davies, and he does a very good job.

The Bad

  • Some of the special effects are poorly done. Especially.the sinking of the ship.
  • It’s way too preachy about women’s rights. Especially given the time period, it sticks out like a sore thumb.
  • The female protagonist throws her morals out the window, to sleep with a man who’s virtually a stranger. A prime example of trying to push modern “morality” on the past.
  • And even after she finds out he’s a German spy, responsible for the deaths of dozens and the destruction of the ship … She still “loves” him. Despite his actions, including lying to her and deceiving her.
  • Much of the story is heavily fictionalized, effectively a Well, this could have happened” story.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
