Juggernaut

This is a thriller from 1974 and someone must have recommended it to me. I wish I knew who and why, because although there were some very tense moments, the rest was not so much.

The British cruise ship Brittanic is between the UK and the US when the office receives notice of bombs aboard. The bomber, who calls himself Juggernaut, asks for 500,000 pounds in exchange for how to disarm the bombs. The police insist that the money not be paid, they'll send a batch of bomb experts instead. As the experts work their way through the traps in the bombs, some of them are killed, and there's a lot of damage to the ship. Personally, I think they should have just paid the money. Stars Richard Harris, Anthony Hopkins, and Omar Sharif, but that wouldn't be enough for me to watch it again.
