Irwin Allen's second water-logged disaster film picks up where The Poseidon Adventure left off; Salvagers Michael Caine, Karl Malden and Sally Field enter the Poseidon to take what they can, unaware that evil salvager Telly Savalas and his henchmen lie in wait. When an explosion rocks the ship, the enemies find themselves trapped inside in a battle for survival both against nature and themselves. The good guys pick up some survivors along the way, including Peter Boyle as a stereotypically hot-headed Italian, Mark Harmon as the All-American boy next door, and Slim Pickens as the ship's wine steward in what may be one of the most poorly-written parts of all time.

Not a bad sequel to the original film, this time a crew of people go back to try and get the contents of the vault. Good cast and story line.More
I saw "The Poseidon Adventure" a few months ago and thought it was a great, classic movie. Therefore, when I found out that a sequel had been made, I couldn't wait to see it.
Instead of several people taking a cruise on the luxury liner called the Poseidon, this time around, a few people headed by a captain (Michael Caine), board the capsized and upside down Poseidon in search of plutonium and gold. But it might not be as easy to find the riches and then get off the ship as they first think it will be.
"Beyond the Poseidon Adventure" is a decent movie. It has good enough acting, decent special effects, and in parts it's somewhat interesting. However, it's not nearly as interesting or as suspenseful as the original was in my opinion.
If you liked "The Poseidon Adventure," I recommend watching "Beyond the Poseidon Adventure," but I don't recommend buying it unless you absolutely have to have it so you can say you own both movies in the series. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2001. Terrible sequel.
A dimwitted action sequel to a dimwitted disaster movie populated with a second string cast of TV movie stalwarts, and Michael Caine slumming it in a similar vein to Jaws:The Revenge. But like that film, it is still strangely watchable in a laugh at it rather than with it kind of way...More
