PoseidonOn New Year';s Eve, the luxury ocean liner Poseidon capsizes after being swamped by a rogue wave. Trapped beneath the waterline and implored by the captain to remain in place until a rescue team arrives, the panicked survivors struggle to keep their cool as the water begins to rush in, infernos blaze all around, and a loss of electricity plunges the doomed vessel into total darkness. The survivors are left to fight for their lives as they attempt to escape the sinking ship.

Critic Reviews of "Poseidon"Time OutJune 24, 2006
Petersen's expert direction ensures it remains gripping, keeping the tension ratcheted right up and commendably steering it all home within 100 minutes.Wall Street JournalJune 22, 2006
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.New York Magazine/VultureMay 18, 2006
As a humanist, I applaud the respect for life, but I miss the campy fun. The movie is, in all senses, a big downer.Ebert & RoeperMay 16, 2006
... a waterlogged, unnecessary re-imagining of the cheesy blockbuster from the Seventies heyday of disaster films.New YorkerMay 16, 2006
Throughout the movie, Petersen has a dynamic feel for the rush and heave of the deluge, the pent-up energy, the sheer heft and momentum.Toronto StarMay 12, 2006
There's never any doubt that some of these uninteresting people will make the passage through hell to the hull, it's only a question of which ones. And whether we'll still be there to see whom.Movie MetropolisApril 07, 2010
If you liked the original movie, you might like this remake as well.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
It's a carnival ride, with shocks, endless stunts, and when you're done, you've forgotten it and moved on to something better.Eye for FilmAugust 02, 2007
A handful of the passengers may eventually get out of the ship alive, but nothing, it seems, can save them from Mark Protosevich's sinking script. At least it looks good as it goes down.DVD ReviewJuly 10, 2007
Where the original had the distinct flavor of 1970s kitsch ... Petersen's movie has loads of CGI and a cameo appearance from Black Eyed Peas front woman Fergie.
