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?

It certainly isn't as dramatic as Titanic, and the original Poseidon Adventure is still slightly better.

Poseidon re-introduces the disaster-movie genre to theaters, and they greet each other with a big, sloppy kiss ...

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.

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.

Short, sweet, tight, to-the-point and able to fully satisfy anyone craving a silly disaster film.

It will be a minor treat to rent the DVD, and freeze-frame some of the more choice wooden expressions.

Sure, some of the acting's excruciating and the dialogue is dire. But heck, as a big dumb action movie, it delivers by the bucketload.

Boasting impressive special effects and a decent cast, this isn't a patch on the original movie but it's enjoyable enough for its remarkably trim running time.

Petersen brings us about as close to the original's guilty pleasures as possible, without cutting into the thrills.

A gripping, pacy remake of Irwin Allen's 1972 classic disaster movie.

If a simple idea floats enough boats, it won't scuttle a perfectly respectable recovery of the bottom line.

How do you replace the heroic sight of Shelley Winters--breath held longer than David Blaine could fathom--skimming through a watery deep in an effort to save the remaining passengers of 1972's "The Poseidon Adventure"? You don't even try.
