They never should have meddled

With this classic movie hit

The first one was in '72

I still remember it

This one has better CGI

But lacks the heart and soul

Even The Love Boat had more charm

With Gopher's goofy role

The characters are stereotyped

and none has got the class

Of Shelley, Gene and Ernest

And that Stella Stevens lass

The ship was hit by a rogue wave

It flipped stern over stack

The Captain told them to be calm

They'd all be getting back

A little group thought otherwise

They left to find a way

To climb up to the bottom part

And die another day

The action is ongoing

As the cast all sweat and strain

Some parts however are a stretch

For someone with a brain

The dialogue is stilted

The acting's overdone

There IS a morning after

But you'd better rent this one

Rated: 3.5 stars

The film is a superficial hero film... a star vehicle whereas the classic film was an ensemble film that used its cast effectively.

This one doesn't... it plays out like a checklist of modern day action beats.

The hero does amazing feats and can breathe underwater for more than 5-10 minutes. He knows everything, everything he does works without fail.
There is a teen heart throb, he simply exists because teen girls need something to focus on.
His step sister who is also his girlfriend is annoying... she does nothing other than force feed the love story between the teen heartthrob.
The mother and her annoying kid who keeps wondering off. Why the hell isn't she paying close attention to him?
Oh and Kurt Russell is in this, he's fat so he must die later on so that the incestuous affair between the step siblings can have some kind of... never mind.

BTW: Any ethnic minority character dies;
One dies in a brutal and gruesome manner in an elevator shaft involving a make-shift walk way.
The other dies in one of the stupidest ways possible, snagging on some wiring.
The other characters die because they found a would be safe spot but the plot needed to up the stakes... and so the ship was badly designed and this kills them all.

A thankless role for Andre Braugher and that singer whatsherface? The one that peed during a concert...

To be fair, it is a decent action film with decent effects and a great set... but its still a terrible film.

I love movies about the sea, i.e. especially about power-driven ships, big or small. (The sailing ships are less interesting to me, unless, of course, any of them should happen to have a pirate crew aboard! Errol Flynn still "rocks"!) Nonetheless, ultimately I guess that I have to go to the 1972 movie, "The Poseidon Adventure", or to this 2006 remake, titled simply "Poseidon", for some real ship-kicking fun. My experience on ships as a young sailor was with those of Second World War vintage, and these modern vessels, like the Poseidon sort or any such cruise ship now, are mystifying, with all of that advanced technology. Then, atop that, things are mostly upside down, of course, once the ship has capsized completely! Those factors bewilder, as well as the fact that cruise ships have come to look, and to operate for the passengers, more along the lines of floating hotels (with or without casinos) than more recognisably like "real" sea-going vessels!

Still, it's fun going through the guts of any ship as the actors do in this film, so I was happy that most of the film takes place not in the ballroom and passenger cabins, but deep within the ship, right to the bottom of its overturned hull. For those who like the "innards" of ships most of all, this is fun to watch, as, for the same reason, so much of "Ghost Ship" was, too. The actors mostly are okay, and it is nice to have a talented little boy passenger among them, instead of adults entirely. I'll be watching this again!
