Review: Poseidon

30 Nov 99


I saw a preview of this. Expected little, got quite a bit more. Like the blurb on here says, there is a bit of time wasting at the start when we meet the characters. The filmmakers don't handle these scenes very well, they are over dramatic and come across phony.

But once the wave hits and the action starts, Poseidon pleasantly suprises. The various stages of the groups journey up the boat, all provide high raising tension. I squirmed my way through the whole film.

In many ways its a standard disaster film, but it terms of action & tension - it is one of the better ones.
