Professional Reviews

Entertainment Weekly
"Winters won an Oscar nomination for pulling off the best moment in the best disaster flick ever." 06/04/2004 p.34

New York Times
"THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE has aged surprisingly well....The film's classical narrative contours come into sharper focus..." 05/09/2006 p.E3

Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t digs in the hooks and won't let go..." 07/01/2006 p.127

Chicago Sun-Times 7 of 10
This is a wonderful formula. I love it. "The Poseidon Adventure" is the kind of movie you know is going to be awful, and yet somehow you gotta see it, right? They ought to be honest in the ads: Cornier than "Airport"! More cliches than "Grand Hotel"! The most character actors in small roles since "Flight of the Phoenix"! Bigger ups and downs than the elevator in "Hotel"! - Roger Ebert

Needcoffee.com 8 of 10
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. - Widgett Walls
