The luxury cruise liner, the SS Poseidon is making its
final Mediterranean voyage when it is hit by a tidal wave
caused by an underwater earthquake. The wave turns the ship
upside down stranding the passengers underwater. A small group
of survivors, led by Reverend Frank Scott begin a slow and
treacherous climb to the ships hull in a bid to reach safety...
one of the best adventure disaster movies ever made, The
Poseidon Adventure has a strong cast who manages to pull
off suspense, horror and a few touching moments.
hadn't seen this movie for a good 15 years and had forgotten
that Leslie Nielsen played the part of the captain. After
associating him with both the Airplane and Naked
Gun movies since then, I kept waiting for him to make
a wisecrack remark.
only extra of any merit is a 10-minute featurette on the movie
which has a few interviews with cast and crew members that
was released at the same time as the movie
very entertaining movie that hasn't aged much. It is no wonder
that it received a Special Achievement Academy Award in 1972
for its visual effects.
