Goliath Awaits During World War II, the passenger liner Goliath is sunk by a German submarine. Portions of the ship’s hull remain airtight, and some of the passengers and crew survive. Over the decades they build a rigidly regulated society completely isolated from the surface world, until in contemporary times a diving team begins to explore the wreck.
Goliath Awaits, I remember this when it premiered in Nov. of 1981 when I was in the 7th grade. I remember the specifics very well, however other reviewers are wrong about a few of the facts. First off Christopher Lee’s character was NOT the captain, he was the third officer of the ship and was in charge of the engine room. Second, the movie was not made to be a horror flick. I remember the T.V. Guide writeup about it then and it is a Mystery-Suspense story. Overall a very cool movie that had an interesting premise of what if? What if the Queen Mary sank or the Queen Elizabeth sank and what would the people be like after 40 years of isolation from the world. Lee is the most noteable when it comes to the acting. I like the other actors in the film but I will say that Mark Harmon, who is a good actor, in this one really overacted a few times. All in all a great story, decent acting and cool sets.
I live the movie
Goliath Awaits It just baffles me that they lived down there. I think that it would be kinda hard seeing that they are under water and it seems that it is surprising that the ship hasn’t decade or just went and just gave way to the water pressure. It is also surprising that the people didn’t just die down there with out the proper medical equipment. Plus that the other people from below the main part of the ship never wanted to live with the rest of the people. I just don’t see how any one could handle being under the ocean for that long without any kind of wanting to get back to the real world instead of staying where they are. Plus it is also surprising that the little kids never wanted to know about life outside of the ship and also what the world is bigger then any what they are use to.
