The Britannic was the sister ship of the RMS Titanic, and like her big sister before her, the ship sank. This a good made for TV film about the disaster and though a bit fictional, is a nonetheless well made film directed by famed Australian Exploitation director Brian Trenchard-Smith. Although there are noticeable weak points of the film, most notably its low production value, the subject was handled well, and it was an entertaining film for what it tried to be. The film is one that could have been better, but nonetheless it works well due to the fact that the real story behind the fiction is quite interesting, and it's what keeps you involved in enjoying this film. The cast do a fine job here, and overall despite its fictional take on the actual events, Britannic is worth seeing if you enjoy these types of movies. The film has its imperfection, and it lies solely on the fictional story, but the events itself of the disaster I found quite good and entertaining. If given a script rewrite, then maybe this would have been a better film. But considering the films limitations, Britannic is a film that isn't bad either, it just needed a script polish to really make it really work. But like every made for TV film, this film leaves a lot to be left unsaid about those events. At least the filmmakers managed to make an entertaining movie out of the story of Titanic's sister ship. If you're interested in the subject, this is worth a look, but be prepared for a dose of fiction mixed in with the real events, but of course that was done for a more dramatic effect, very much like what James Cameron did with the romantic storyline in his overly awful and overrated film Titanic.

This movie is better then I expected. The acting was pretty good. I love John Rhys-Davies and Edward Atterton. While some might call it a Titanic (1997) ripoff. I found it very entertaining. I especially enjoyed the fact that they use the only person to survive both Olympic class sinkings to carry the story. This movie is worth watching.

It's the retarded step-sister to James Cameron's 1997 film. It tries too hard to be like Titanic but given the sinking of the HMHS Britannic only lasted 55 minutes, everything was quite obviously rushed.

Even though the computer aspects are poorly done it was well put together for a low budget film.

On the side with it's historical inaccuracies i was compelled by Britannic's complex story and a masterful script, two things "Titanic" needed.

The movie is great but blending CGI version of water is so bad.
