Speed 2: Cruise Control

Geiger takes Annie as his hostage and flees the ship on a motorboat, setting the ship to crash into an oil tanker. Alex chases after them but fails to get to Geiger in time. Giuliano saves him from falling into the water and they tamper with the ship's anchor to slow it down and steer it away from the oil tanker. The two ships nearly collide. The cruise ship crashes into St. Maartan and destroys several city blocks before coming to a stop. Alex commandeers another motorboat and pursues Geiger and Annie. Geiger and Annie board a seaplane but Annie manages to escape. Geiger crashes into a large pole on top off another oil tanker. Right after the tanker is evacuated Geiger's plane explodes, as does the tanker. Annie and Alex continue their vacation.

Factual error: In one scene they attempt to divert the ship by manually activating the ship's bowthruster. A thruster is a propeller in a transverse direction. This allows the ship to turn more efficiently when docking. However the thruster loses any efficiency above approximately 5 knots. In the film they use it at 17 knots. Secondly, a thruster is powered by an electric motor of at least 500 kW, yet they manage to turn it by hand. That handle does not exist in real life, and no one would be able to turn it anyway.
