The 1972 disaster hit The Poseidon Adventure was ripe for a big-budget CGI remake, and who better to helm it than thriller expert Wolfgang Petersen, director of Das Boot and The Perfect Storm? It hardly matters that a TV movie remake (also based on Paul Gallico’s original 1969 source novel) was made less than a year before, because Petersen’s version is far more spectacular, with shocking digital effects, massive sets, amazing stunt-work and enough fire and water to fill fiv… More >>

  2. A ship capsizes. The Captain orders the passengers to stay calm and wait till rescue arrives. A small group of passengers decide to take matters into their own hands and look for an escape. Essentially this mob defies authority putting the lives of other passengers at great risk. Who assigned this mob to take authority? This is an allegorical tale synonymous to taking the constitution and defying its principals and flaunty those would defend the constitution in the process. The mob waves their own flag to that end. This film makes a mockery of law and order and promotes the mob rule mentality that seems pervasive in our society. It asks the viewer to bend the law to suit their special interests like opening boarders to illegal aliens and turning a blind eye. This film’s pretext is ludicrous and plays upon the better judgment of the viewer seeking that evasive weak moment to have one go along for this supposed adventure. This is not my kind of adventure.

  5. I saw this in the theater, and knew then it was bad, so you may be wondering why I bought the DVD. Good question. It could be because the original from 1972 is my favorite movie of all time, and even caused me to travel cross country to attend the final fan club reunion in May ’06. It could be to add to my collection of bad movies, where I can point it out to friends and say “can you believe I own this?” It could be because the disks will make great movie-themed coasters for my Oscar party. But, deep down, I think it’s because of my love for the original. I tried so hard to like this movie, but everyone envolved with the production, starting with the writer, didn’t care about what they were doing, so how could we? There are times when I still cry at Belle Rosen’s death from ’72. The only time I cried at “Poseidon” was when I left the theatre, and knew I could not get my money back. I got the SE’s of both the original and the “reimagining” simply so I could say I gave this one a shot. If you love CGI, buy this, if you love good movies (not even great, just good) then save yourself from this waste of talent and time.
