Decent remake

on 3/8/2008

Not the best movie I've ever seen, but not bad. Good for a rainy afternoon.

ReviewSource Variety
Review Hey, that giant tidal wave was so 1970s. Why not a new "The Poseidon Adventure," where the ship is upended by terrorists that infiltrate the kitchen staff? OK, so one man's current-events-oriented rethinking to include a weird disaster-movie-meets-"Navy SEALs" mesh is another's unnecessary exploitation. Bottom line is that once the boat finally flips, there are plenty of big stunts and action here -- this remake's one saving grace, since all the character-driven revisions only water down the product...In another bit of updating, at the core of this "Adventure" is a dysfunctional nuclear family, the Clarkes. Dad (Steve Guttenberg) and mom (Alexa Hamilton) have brought their kids (Amber Sainsbury, Rory Copus) on a cruise, but not only is their marriage on the rocks, dad starts a brazen affair with the ship's masseuse (Nathalie Boltt)...While such a project is hardly an actors' showcase, it would help if viewers cared even remotely about the passengers before they start dying off. Unfortunately, the drama is flimsy at best, including Guttenberg's cringe-worthy attempts to bond with his kids when he should be, say, trying to avoid plunging into flames -- a fiery death suffered by some that proves rife with symbolic reckoning...the strategy here is as transparent as the hole in the Poseidon: Hope the name alone sparks curiosity.

Brian Lowry, Variety ...plenty of big stunts and action...
Total Film ...when the film concentrates on delivering the almighty blockbuster goods, it works remarkably efficiently with some impressive epic set-pieces.
