    When you start watching Juggernaut, you think the title refers to the size of the Britannic (not the Titanic, we swear!), but no, it's the pseudonym of the bomber who rigs it to blow. You also think you're in a disaster movie with a prestige British cast, but no, it's really more of a bomb squad procedural. So it doesn't scratch the itch I thought it would, but it did scratch an itch of mine. Richard Harris plays a cool, fatalistic bomb expert trying to avert a disaster at sea, and he's great, but we've also got Anthony Hopkins, Ian Holm, Omar Sharif, Julian Glover, and tons of recognizable faces besides (I'm always happy to see Clifton James can play something other than Sheriff Pepper). It's more disaster film in the MAKING and how to (hopefully) PREVENT that disaster, than the proper thing, which is fine, and the suspense works. However, I do feel at the end that we needed more closure with the cast members introduced to give a face to the possible victims and people on shore working on the problem remotely. It's like they were forgotten in the climax and my investment in their lives was wasted. 11 months 1 week ago
