For a lower-budget docu-drama, The Sinking of the Lusitania - Terror at Sea feels like a real movie. John Hannah brings a playful life to the kind-hearted Professor Ian Holbourn, while Kenneth Cranham breaths dignity and sympathy into the roll of Captain William Turner.

As for special effects, the fact that many were created practically helps the film stand up and look great, even 11 years later. There are, however, a few instances where this is not the case and it does show.

There are also some inaccuracies in the drama (such as Professor Holbourn and Avis being 1st class passengers when they were actually 2nd class, and the addition of fictional actress Dorothy Taylor), but despite some details being incorrect, the story is engaging. Hopefully, it will continue to inspire viewers to dig deeper into the story of the Lusitania and her fascinating, ill-fated assengers and crew.
