"timo filme-catástrofe que, além do habitual elenco estelar e da excepcional direção de arte, conta com tensas seqüências de ação.

The Poseidon Adventure was one of the first disaster flicks and it arguably remains the best.

What the glittering, star-driving survivalism of Poseidon Adventure actually presents is a nightmarishly schematic fantasia of guiltless discomfort.

Now you've done it; high concept disaster movies, especially those of Irwin Allen, are one of the chinks in my critical armor. Just can't watch them enough.
