  • Critical reception

    The Radio Times wrote, "the grim grandeur of the Clyde shipyards provides the setting for this lacklustre melodrama which trades on the British docudramatic tradition while dealing in potboiling cliches" ; the Oxford Times wrote, "this is a classic town-and-country saga that is spiritedly played by an exceptional Scottish ensemble" ; while Eye for Film wrote, "Industry is the real star of this film. Its full of passion for building a better future and it may well prove inspiring to engineers just starting out today."
