Kino Lorber provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post.
The opinions I share are my own.


HMS Britannic is caught in a storm at sea. But the real terror is on board — seven bombs planted by a terrorist calling himself Juggernaut, who demands a high ransom in exchange for the passengers’ lives. Bomb expert Fallon (RICHARD HARRIS) is flown to the ship and, as negotiations break down, he struggles with the most challenging job of his life in a race against time!



This release does come with a matted slip cover and the only features is a (I think) new Audio Commentary with Film Historians Steve Mitchell and Nathaniel Harris as well as the Theatrical Trailer and TV Spot.



VIDEO – 3¾/5

Kino Lorber releases Juggernaut onto Blu-ray presented in its original 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer which I found to look adequate if not anything noteworthy. Detail was okay and colors appear to be well balanced.

AUDIO – 3¾/5

The included DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track, like the picture, isn’t phenomenal but gets the job done with okay depth for the explosion scenes as well as dialogue levels which came across well balanced and no real hints of hissing, pops or other audio flaws.
