Storyline

Timely, yet terrifying, this movie predicts 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 pour into the city. The lives of millions of Londoners are at stake. Top marine engineers and barrier experts Robert Morrison (Robert Carlyle), his ex-wife Samantha "Sam" Morrison (Jessalyn Gilsig), and his father Professor Leonard Morrison (Sir Tom Courtenay), have only a few hours to save the city from total devastation. A real probability in a real location. It is not a question of if, but when London floods. Written by Jonathan Rutter / Matthew Sanders

Trivia

Evacuation to a height of over one hundred fifty feet above sea level for London would be to areas of Hampstead in the north, Shooters Hill to the southeast, Biggin Hill to the south, and Richmond Hill to the southwest, all with sea levels double the height of the Thames Barrier, and all within five miles of the Thames. Assuming people casually walk three miles per hour, evacuation by foot would be less than two hours. See more »

Goofs

The helicopter taking the Deputy Prime Minister to Scotland bears a ZS- Registration for South Africa, not a G- Registration as would be expected. Furthermore he would have been flown by the Military in such an instance. See more »

It's raining in my heart
5 February 2008 | by yorkshire_keithSee all my reviews

Oh but this is woeful. One good actor after another turns in lamentable dialogue in half hearted fashion under what must have been incredibly pedestrian direction to consider it acceptable. I like Robert Carlyle and Joanne Whalley is one of my favourite actresses, Tom Courtney can act well when pushed and David Suchet is a professional of the highest integrity but they all wallowed around like fish in a barrel of watery gin. I swear Courtney was inebriated, on painkillers or both.

Was there a good performance in the whole thing? Well yes, David Hood as the junior underground engineer whose mate got washed away looked like he was taking the thing seriously and credit to him for that, it can't be easy when "all around are losing theirs" so to speak, or maybe his scenes came under the direction of the assistant director ( if there was one) I just don't know what these people were doing in a film that was this poor ( other than paying the bills, obviously) I can't begin to say how disappointed I am in them. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES!

Any positives other than David Hood the third... yes The aerial shots of London largely submerged were very well done and the effects artists responsible deserved better than to have their fine work punctuated by such a shallow story,if you'll forgive the expression, as those few people that do see them will do so on a far smaller screen than would be to best advantage.

What's going on here? why are British film makers trying to imitate such characterless, spectacle driven, tabloid level genres as the disaster movie and then doing it even worse than the Americans. Gritty realism, character integrity, the capture of real emotion in a way that makes you feel it and care... The Family Way, Spring and Port Wine, Get Carter, The long Good Friday, Trainspotting....Don't get me wrong I like a bit of escapist hokum. The real "Italian Job" , The Adventures of Tom Jones; but oh that it should come to this, there was more realistic drama in Carry On Camping.
