Movie Reviews

The sequel to The Poseidon Adventure.
James McDonald | Southern California | 06/17/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The original film, The Poseidon Adventure (1972) was a huge success. It helped to energize the disaster film genre. Having an all-star cast was also the big boost that audiences love to see. It was followed by Earthquake (1974), The Towering Inferno (1974), Airport 1975 (1974), Airport '77 (1977), Airport '79--The Concorde (1979) and Meteor (1979).
This paved the way for a sequel to "The Poseidon Adventure" (1972), albeit, seven years later, but the storyline takes place after the end of the first film which makes Beyond The Poseidon Adventure (1979) a delight to watch including a new all-star cast: Michael Caine, Sally Field, Telly Savalas, Peter Boyle, Jack Warden, Shirley Knight, Slim Pickens, Shirley Jones, Karl Malden, Veronica Hamel, Mark Harmon, Angela Cartwright.
A salvage crew whethers the storm to get to the Poseidon ship. The survivors got out, but now the salvage crew must go in and why not take some treasures with them too. Telly Savalas plays a tycoon with his guard crew has exactly the same thing in mind. Once inside the ship, they take the same path as the survivors did and it does look familar, but they find some other passageways to explore and they find more people alive. That's what makes this film fun. Going in is one thing, but trying to get back out is another. This cruise ship is still moving and exploding. It could totally sink in any minute.
2 Remakes:
NBC/Hallmark has made their own " The Poseidon Adventure" television mini-series starring Adam Baldwin and Steve Guttenberg. It will be broadcast on NBC, November 20, 2005.
Warner Brothers will be releasing a new version, "POSEIDON", on May 12, 2006 for the movie theatres. The all-star cast will include Kurt Russell, Richard Dreyfuss, Emmy Rossum and Josh Lucas.
Both versions will be different."
It's decent, but it sinks when compared to the original

"I saw "The Poseidon Adventure" a few months ago and thought it was a great, classic movie. Therefore, when I found out that a sequel had been made, I couldn't wait to see it.Instead of several people taking a cruise on the luxury liner called the Poseidon, this time around, a few people headed by a captain (Michael Caine), board the capsized and upside down Poseidon in search of plutonium and gold. But it might not be as easy to find the riches and then get off the ship as they first think it will be."Beyond the Poseidon Adventure" is a decent movie. It has good enough acting, decent special effects, and in parts it's somewhat interesting. However, it's not nearly as interesting or as suspenseful as the original was in my opinion.If you liked "The Poseidon Adventure," I recommend watching "Beyond the Poseidon Adventure," but I don't recommend buying it unless you absolutely have to have it so you can say you own both movies in the series."
The Adventure Concludes - finally!

"At last!!! I have been waiting for this movie to be released for years.
This movie helps bring the original movie to a logical conclusion. The original left me wandering what had happened to the rest of the people on board, and did any more survive? This gives a very credible answer, while telling you it's own story. The cast is good and the action while not as thrilling as the first movie's is every bit as good in it's own way.
I cannot understand the negative reviews for this. I found it to be a really good movie done by the man who gave us such gems as Towering Inferno. Irwin Allen knew how to make a good disaster movie and people must remember that this was made in the days when special effects weren't as good as they are today. I found the sets etc to be fairly realistic looking (I have never been in such a situation, so cannot tell truly) and passed along the feeling of unreality in a world turned upside down."

"I loved the original Poseidon Adventure, and looked forward to seeing the sequel, and the recent remake. (The latter which I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing!) While it's not a patch on the original, it was still an above average sequel.

Beyond the Poseidon Adventure makes use of old sets, and also keep your eyes peeled for a shot of one of the dead from the previous film just to keep the continuity. (Although I think it's just an actual shot from the previous film.) Most of the actors are doing their best with the script, and most of the characters are the exact same as the previous characters. For example, Michael Caine's a bossier version of Gene Hackman's character, there's Wilbur, who's another Rogo all over again. I don't think the original really called for a sequel to be made, but yes, it does actually work.

I did find Sally Field's character really whiny, and her hair, oh my god, even on my worst hair days, my hair looks nowhere near as bad as hers did! And it's amazing how she's 60 now, and still looks exactly the same. Apart from the hair of course.

Rather than follow the usual course for the sequel, trying the story again with another group of survivors trying to get out, they try it with people trying to get IN to the boat. A pretty impressive storyline, considering some sequels do the exact same storyline over again.

I'd definitely give this film a shot if you love movies dealing with water (like me, for some sick reason), or just loved the original."
