One of the first disaster movies, good acting and great characters. If you haven't seen it, and enjoy action movies, it's worth a watch.

This is the original classic. As such, you should see it at least once.
BUT... it is a typical 70s disaster film. Therefor it is mainly just a lot of Big Name actors in a not-so-big budget film.

It irritates me that they killed off my favorite character in the first 15 minutes after the Poseidon flips. And the rest of the movie will randomly pick off various characters in a variety of ways.

But hey, might as well see it once, and judge for yourself.
