Editorial Reviews

Timely yet terrifying, Flood unleashes the unthinkable. When a raging storm coincides with high seas it unleashes a colossal tidal surge, which travels mercilessly down England s East Coast and into the Thames Estuary, overwhelming the Barrier. Torrents of water engulf the city. The lives of millions are at stake. Top marine engineer, Rob (Robert Carlyle, The Full Monty, Trainspotting), his father, and his ex-wife come together and have only two hours to drain the city of water and save a city on the brink of annihilation. An achievement in the disastertainment genre, Flood features amazing special effects, a great cast, and a heart-pounding catastrophe of a great metropolis. And its available now for the first time on DVD!

Format: DVD
Contrary to the description, this is not the first time it is released on DVD, it is the second, and more the better for it. This was an ITV telefilm (240 minutes) that was later edited for DVD (106 minutes) and has now been re-released at 188 minutes.

The original (very poorly) edited version received scathing reviews, and deservedly so. Most people watching didn't realise they were seeing something that had been hacked to bits. Now the full version is out and, although lengthy, it at least bridges some of the gaps in logic that were created by the hatchet job. That being said, this is not the best movie ever made but it does have its good points (effects, cast, and a decent plot). It was originally broadcast in two halves so that may be the best way to watch it.

I felt the premise was credible, didn't find too many holes in the logic and they took their time telling the story (which accounts for the length). However, it never really was dull and there were some genuinely nail-biter moments.
Characterizations were excellent as were all the actors.
As disaster movies go..this one is definitely several cuts above.

Much better than expected catastrophe film. Very good acting, camera work, effects. The ending could have been a little better but this is a very good film if you like this type of stuff. Enjoy!

This DVD was hard to find! I saw the movie once on TV, 4 hours and lots of commercials!! Robert Carlyle is one of my favorite actors and he is brilliant in this movie. Of course, being from the U.S. the story was all new to me. But I'm so glad I found it.

I loved the movie when it was on TV and was happy to hear it was available on dvd. It has great acting and love the special effects. I am a fan of disaster flicks and this one is at the top of my list!

This is my kind of movie. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Great acting & good story. And even though it's 187 minutes it didn't seem long.

I recieved this in great conditon and have seen it several time and enjoy it each time. I love getting mini series from the U.K. and without the commercials. That is why I would rather buy the dvd or vhs instead of watching it on t.v. Thank You.

A very disappointing interpretation of Richard Doyle's excellent book of the same title. They could have done so much more. I appreciate that making disaster films is difficult but huge chunks of the story are missing, chunks which would have given a much better forward to the story. This is one that I would not bother to watch again.
