Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: As a humanist, I applaud the respect for life, but I miss the campy fun. The movie is, in all senses, a big downer.
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.
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.
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.
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!
