Let it drown
It's a carnival ride, with shocks, endless stunts, and when you're done, you've forgotten it and moved on to something better.
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.
| Original Score: 2/5
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.
It swims but it's one of those sloppy dog paddles your kid brother does more than an Olympic freestyle.
I left the film with one burning question: if I can't get a cell phone signal when I stand in a certain part of my back yard, how in the heck can you get one miles out to sea?

| Original Score: 3/5
It certainly isn't as dramatic as Titanic, and the original Poseidon Adventure is still slightly better.
This is one of those unnecessary remakes that Hollywood regurgitates about once a month whether anybody is interested in them or not.
| Original Score: C
Poseidon re-introduces the disaster-movie genre to theaters, and they greet each other with a big, sloppy kiss ...
| Original Score: 3/5
Típico filme de entretenimiento: palomero, sin necesidad de utilizar mucho las neuronas, bien hecho, atractivo y con el que se va a desperdiciar hora y media de la vida sin remordimiento alguno.
| Original Score: 3/4
...[director Wolfgang] Petersen once again proves that he's a master at this sort of thing.
Here we get the impression that the only thing on the minds of these filmmakers is how well they can polish up a turd before throwing it at unsuspecting audiences.
| Original Score: 2/4
Very run of the mill average Summer entertainment - action packed but no heart, let alone any sense of fun
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Petersen's expert direction ensures it remains gripping, keeping the tension ratcheted right up and commendably steering it all home within 100 minutes.
It is just so miraculously funny that you find yourself being swept up in the ludicrously of it all and there can be no arguing with the sheer attention-to-detail in the effects work, which is breathtaking in its extravagance.
Eficiente dentro de suas limitações, só não se iguala ao original por não ter tanta paciência em investir um pouquinho mais de tempo em seus personagens.
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.
Even on this intentionally brainless level, there has to be some basic rooting interest in the characters to salvage the outcome.
