Movie Info

Director Richard Lester proves to be as skillful with edge-of-seat suspense as he is at slapstick farce in Juggernaut. Richard Harris and David Hemmings star as a pair of demolition experts, dispatched on a highly dangerous and delicate mission. A extortionist has planted a number of bombs on a seaborne ocean liner, carrying 1200 passengers and captained by Omar Sharif. Knowing full well that the ship is too far out to sea for a conventional rescue, the extortionist demands a huge ransom or he'll detonate his explosives by remote control. It's up to Harris and Hemmings to track down all the bombs before time runs out. Part of the fun in Juggernaut is trying to guess who the extortionist really is: likely suspects include Anthony Hopkins, Clifton James, Freddie Jones, and even Lester regular Roy Kinnear (hilarious as the ship's social director).

Critic Reviews for Juggernaut

All Critics (4)

Deceptively casual, yet there's hardly moment when it's not extracting near-perfect details of character and setting.

How prescient it all seems.

If you show a ticking bomb, then you'd better blow something up with it
