Audience Reviews for Seven Waves Away (Abandon Ship!) (Seven Days from Now)

A tense and fun classic. Full of suspense and high drama, similar to ''Lifeboat'' by Alfred Hitchcock. However, Abandon Ship, it's a little know film, that could entertaining the audience. Fresh.

"The point of civilization was for the strong to protect the weak."

"Why are the wicked always so strong?"


Abando Ship! kept my curiosity going about how the survivors were going to survive & deal with the situation they were in.I found it funny that everybody was for the captain & the decisions he chose to make but abandoned him when they were finally rescued.In my opinion, Director Richard Sale did a good job turning a big ocean into such a small space
