Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Poseidon is named after the wrong god. The god of laughter and derision is Momus, who was cast out of Olympus for mocking Zeus, Athena and Poseidon. – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Poseidon betrays a studio mindset that can only hasten the current erosion of movie attendance -- skimping on human content while betting heedlessly on boom boom boom and gurgle gurgle gurgle. – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Poseidon's not so purely realized or ultra-intense that it can get by without revving its emotional engines, and its problems start early. – Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: While the ship's survivors are driven to live, Poseidon is never character-driven enough to make us care. – Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, Jun 24, 2010

good movie

i have a thing for movies about ship recks, my favorite movie is titanic and this is a close second, just don't watch it if you plan to go on a cruise any time soon. big mistake, i saw it 2 weeks before i went on a cruise and every twenty minutes i was on the deck looking for huge waves and asking about the water tempature.


Better than titanic!!


I love this movie! I think its way better than the 1972 version. A must buy!
