    I enjoy a film that pits the strength of Man against all elements and situations;On New Year's, a cruise ship is suddenly flipped over on its way to Europe.Reverend Scott(Hackman) is the strength and drive that guides surviors of this awesome tidal wave.Jack Albertson,Red Buttons,and Shelley Winters join the all- star cast that makes this disaster movie one of my favorites!
