4.0 out of 5 stars With Bonus Features, This Exciting, Upside Down Adventure on the Capsized, Sinking Wreck of an Ocean Liner Is All the More Fun!, 14 Mar 2013
This review is from: Poseidon [Special Edition] [2 DVDs] (DVD)
I love movies about the sea, i.e. especially about power-driven ships, big or small. (The sailing ships are less interesting to me, unless, of course, any of them should happen to have a pirate crew aboard! Errol Flynn still "rocks"!) Nonetheless, ultimately I guess that I have to go to the 1972 movie, "The Poseidon Adventure", or to this 2006 remake, titled simply "Poseidon", for some real ship-kicking fun, the extra features of the latter film's two-DVD special widescreen edition adding to the fun as well as being informative. My experience on ships as a young sailor was with those of Second World War vintage, and these modern vessels, like the Poseidon sort or any such cruise ship now, are mystifying, with all of that advanced technology. Then, atop that, things are mostly upside down, of course, once the ship has capsized completely! Those factors bewilder, as well as the fact that cruise ships have come to look, and to operate for the passengers, more along the lines of floating hotels (with or without casinos) than more recognisably like "real" sea-going vessels!

Still, it's fun going through the guts of any ship as the actors do in this film, so I was happy that most of the film takes place not in the ballroom and passenger cabins, but deep within the ship, right to the bottom of its overturned hull. For those who like the "innards" of ships most of all, this is fun to watch, as, for the same reason, so much of "Ghost Ship" was, too. The actors mostly are okay, and it is nice to have a talented little boy passenger among them, instead of adults entirely. I'll be watching this again!
