A good fictionalized account of the Halifax Explosion

"The Halifax Explosion happened during World War I, on the morning of December 6, 1917, when a ship loaded with munitions exploded in the harbor. Large sections of the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia were destroyed. Thousands were maimed or killed. It was the largest man-made explosion in history until the detonation of the first atomic bomb over Hiroshima in 1945. This is a fictionalized, but realistic, movie about it. It's well done and definitely worth seeing.

"THE ONLY THING I DIDN'T LIKE ABOUT THIS VIDEO WAS ALL THE PREVIEWS AT THE BEGINNING....AND I COULDN'T SKIP RIGHT TO THE MOVIE.
IT WAS WELL DONE AND THE FACTS WERE ACURATE BUT THERE WAS QUITE ALOT OF FANTASY. HOWEVER IT PROBABLY MADE FOR A BETTER STORY."
The most powerful explosion before the A-bomb!

"Few today remember Halifax, Nova Scotia, was almost wiped off the map in a ship collison during W.W.I which should never have happened. The acting is more than adequate and you can't tire of watching Tamara Hope, a Canadian actress clearly headed for the big-time."
