Action Adventure - This is an effects-laden disaster film whose focus is more on destruction than people. Anyone looking for affecting drama will be disappointed, as will fans of Kurt Russell and Richard Dreyfuss, who have fairly limited roles here.

Critic's Review Heading
Very Mixed

The above rating is an average of the critic reviews below.

(Close new window when finished with Full Reviews)

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Its straightforward action/adventure approach is both a strength and a weakness. Petersen sets out to give us a group of undeveloped stock characters and a bunch of cheap thrills, and that's what he delivers.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average What do I mean by 'perfunctory'? I mean that Petersen's heart isn't in it. He is too wise a director to think this is first-rate material, and too good a director to turn it into enjoyable trash.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average Poseidon is a sodden saga, with a script that is awash in clichés. It nearly drowns under the weight of its own soggy tedium.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 80 moviegoers:Critic opinions are certainly mixed. Same goes for the male moviegoer opinions. Almost all teen males thought it was great, but only half of the twentysomething males rated it highly. Adult male opinions were even lower but still not too bad. Most rated it in the above average to average range. Not great but also not bad.

Females enjoyed "Poseidon" quite a bit more than the males. I can easily recommend it to all females. Only a small percentage rated it somewhat low.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It's New Year's Eve and festivities have begun aboard the luxury cruise ship Poseidon, at sea in the North Atlantic.

One of the finest vessels of its kind, Poseidon stands more than 20 stories tall, boasts 800 staterooms and 13 passenger decks.

Tonight, many of the ship's guests have gathered to greet the new year in style in the magnificent Main Ballroom. They raise champagne glasses as Captain Bradford (ANDRE BRAUGHER) delivers a holiday toast and the band (led by STACY FERGUSON, aka FERGIE of the BLACK EYED PEAS) rolls into a version of "Auld Lang Syne.”

Meanwhile, on the bridge, the Chief Officer senses that something is wrong.

Scanning the horizon, he sees it – a rogue wave; a wall of water over 150 feet high, bearing down on them. He tries to steer the ship away from maximum impact but it's too late. The wave strikes with colossal force, pitching the ship heavily to port before rolling it completely upside down. Passengers and crew are thrown into free fall, crushed by debris or dragged into the sea as water bursts in through shattered windows. Supports collapse, broken gas lines ignite flash fires and lights fail, leaving vast sections of the ship in darkness and chaos. In its aftermath, a few hundred survivors are left to huddle in the still-intact Main Ballroom, now resting below the waterline. They should stay together, the captain maintains, and wait here for rescue.

One man, professional gambler Dylan Johns (JOSH LUCAS), prefers to test the odds alone. Ignoring orders, he prepares to exit the Ballroom and find his own way to safety, but is collared by nine-year-old Conor (JIMMY BENNETT), who asks that Dylan take him and his mother Maggie (JACINDA BARRETT) along. Fast behind them is Robert Ramsey (KURT RUSSELL), anxious to search for his daughter Jennifer (EMMY ROSSUM) and her fiancé Christian (MIKE VOGEL). Only an hour earlier this young couple had found it impossible to tell him they were engaged and now face much graver challenges.

Wary of alliances, Dylan reluctantly leads the small band of survivors upward through the bowels of the ship. Those who choose to join them rather than wait below include a shy stowaway (MIA MAESTRO), a suicidal man (RICHARD DREYFUSS) who re-discovers his will to live and a young waiter with knowledge of the ship's layout (FREDDY RODRIGUEZ). Determined to fight their way to the surface, they must forge a path together through layers of wreckage as the ship continues to sink. Bonds form quickly in this journey of vertical climbs, dead ends and sheer drops. And trust proves vital.
