First of all, it was made by someone with exactly zero knowledge of ships. I mean, how much stucco do you normally see on the bulkheads of ocean liners? Concrete on the floors of engine rooms?
Then there were the continuity problems, with some scenes shot on the Queen Mary, and others on and older cruise ship. Not a big problem, unless you have established that the ship is sinking violently in one shot, and then perfectly stable in the next. Outside, the actors are running and jumping on an unmoving deck, while inside they are getting tossed around like a bad Star Trek episode.
Dialogue? Claudia Christian must have been wistful for the worst of her Babylon 5 lines during most of this ordeal.
Plot? A straightforward terrorists seize buidling/airplane/ship with military precision only to be defeated by the Lone Hero with his Comic Sidekick(s). We may have seen this one before...
I had a good laugh towards the end, when a nearby naval ship, hearing that the ship is going down (but getting no word of terrorists on board) organizes a rescue by sending helicopters packed with fully armed marines, including anti-tank weapons. Not sure where they planned on stashing the survivors.
You could have a bit of fun with this one, if you rent it and do a MST3K number on it. ...
"Final Voyage" is the story of a male security officer (Dylan Walsh)who successfully kills off some terrorists who hijack a commercial airliner, while protecting some old movie star from harm. He then gets reassigned to protecting the daughter of Henry Franklin, named Gloria Franklin (I do wish that B movie people would come up with more interesting names for their characters). He saves her when her small plane malfunctions and crash lands (heaven forbid a woman actaully save the day!)and this sparks a whole new view between the two.
Gloria (Erika Elaniak)then decides to take a cruise aboard the brand new cruise ship, Britannic (or 'Brittanic' as it is mispelled on the cheap life-preserver that hangs around the 'ship' at miscellaneous points)which has been completely rebuilt and refurbished. The ship then starts out on its maiden voyage but gets hijacked by the terrorist-who-is-nothing-more-than-a-petty-thief character (Ice-T) and his group of foul-mouthed anarchists. They have come to steal all the 'valueables and artifacts' that are in the ship's vault (a large brightly-blue painted tank).
Two crewmen then find that the ship has a hairline fracture in the hull (made out of concrete!) that is leaking water and they say that the ship's vault is just on the other side of the bulkhead (even though the sea should be on the other side if it's leaking water!Read more ›

You know how airlines, aside from Quantas, don't show in-flight movies that involve crashes or hijackings? Read morePublished on July 13, 2005 by J. Nicholson
I like Dylan Walsh. His boyish good looks and ability to throw off some clever lines has been a part of most of his movies. Read morePublished on March 27, 2004 by Michael Butts
I can't describe how awful this movie is. I'd give it no stars if I could. It's like the makers have never heard the word "continuity" before... or plot... Read morePublished on September 4, 2003
Some people like "B" grade movies.....but not when they have so little action or romance to offer. The cast are so wooden, that even Ice T can't liven things up. Read morePublished on June 28, 2001 by Malcolm R Phillipps
