James' daughter Amy Maine (Marie Westbrook) and Kelly Wade (Michelle Glavan) are nurses in Titanic II ship, making its maiden voyage 100 years after the first Titanic voyage. Millionaire playboy Hayden Walsh (Shane Van Dyke, grandson of Dick Van Dyke.) is the owner of the ship and he is Amy's old boyfriend. Captain Howard (D.C. Douglas) is certain that the modernized ship will do just well.

Global warming causes glacier to collapse and cause a huge Tsunami wave. James and Kim issue a warning about fast moving ice. Titanic II starts taking precautions. The ship's engines are not yet fully tested. Passengers are panicking and iceberg hits the ship. It seems that history is repeating itself. Evacuation begins but there is also a Mega-Tsunami coming to finish the ship.

The effects are above average Asylum level, the ship and glaciers look good (TV-level good) at many scenes. The movie is seriously made low budget disaster film without usual ironic Asylum winks. The movie also has some dramatic moments. Of course there are goofy moments and Amy's nursing solutions are quite weird.

Westbrook's Amy is the heroic dame Van Dyke's Playboy Hayden turns out to be a heroic dude after all. Most experienced actor here is Bruce Davison, and also Brooke Burns does okay. The extras act silly but at least the making of documentary shows that they had fun. If you can get past the movie's silly setting, budget limitations (and things like concrete hallways in a ship), it is an acceptable ship wreck adventure.

Rating: Good (as a low budget Asylum film) Bad (if you were expecting a sequel to Cameron's Titanic)
