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.

For those of you who have not seen the original Poseidon movie with Shelley Winters, this remake matches or exceeds the original.

Unsinkable boat sinks. There are those that are willing to go down with it knows that her paralyzed by the experience and then there are those who are adventurous survivors. Which are you? We have hours of great entertainment watching those who would survive to see if they do survive and those that don't how they don't. There is some emotion some romance some fear of heights so forth but the real movie is will they get out.

All the actors are quite well known and well seasoned the few that are new hold up just as well. The dateline is the present date so there are no problems with Period Pieces or having to match period Costumes. There are lots of fire lots of water and an upside down perspectives on boating.

There's no redeeming social value to this film but it will have fun kibitzing with telling them aloud don't go there! Don't open that door! Here comes the water!

This third version of Paul Gallico's 1969 thriller is yet another remake that lacks the heart and wonder of the original. [If you've seen either of the two earlier interpretations, it is important to note that all three have entirely different characters and names.]

As revellers ring in the New Year aboard the luxury cruise ship Poseidon, the liner is capsized by a 150-foot high rogue wave. A small group of survivors decide to take matters into their own hands by racing up to hoped rescue through the bowels of the rapidly sinking vessel. Among them are a gambler (Josh Lucas), an ex-fireman (Kurt Russell), his daughter (Emmy Rossum), her fiancé (Mike Vogel), a mother (Jacinda Barrett) and son (Jimmy Bennett), a stowaway (Mia Maestro), and a suicidal gay man (Richard Dreyfuss).

Screenwriter Mark Protosevitch, whose last effort was the 2000 Jennifer Lopez clunker The Cell, offers little or no back story to the characters and doesn't bother to explore their motivation -- it seems unlikely a self-centred gambler would so willingly become the leader of the desperate party. Director Wolfgang Petersen proves he is just another hackneyed director, whose past successes were mere flukes. In his hands, even the disaster sequence falls short, and leaves you wanting more. The ballroom set, so key to the original, is much less spectacular, while the multi-deck lobby is underutilized. Petersen is clearly motivated by shock value, choosing to crush many passengers while lining every corridor with twisted bodies. While this may excite teens, it just adds to the film's sterility. Although the film is suspenseful and fast-paced, it seems everyone involved with the project was in a rush to finish it.

The special effects are top-notch, but they are never enough to transport a viewer into the action. Poseidon is just an average attempt to masquerade as a blockbuster...cancel your boarding ticket now. Rating: 5 out of 10.
