Poseidon DVD Review

Kidzworld reviews the 2006 remake, Poseidon.

Hollywood's latest remake is about a ship that capsizes after being hit by a colossal wave. Will Poseidon sink on the big screen as well? Find out here!

Poseidon - A Sinking of Titanic Proportions

As passengers aboard a luxury cruise ship are bringing in the New Year, a monster-sized wave comes out of nowhere, strikes the ship and flips it upside down! As thousands of passengers and crew are crushed, thrown and dragged out to sea, the ship's captain tells the remaining survivors to patiently wait in the grand ballroom for rescue. But a man named Dylan (Josh Lucas) doesn't want to take the chance and starts climbing his way up - to the bottom of the ship. Hot on his trail are a group of people that includes a mother and her young son, a stowaway and Robert (Kurt Russell), a former fireman who's searching for his daughter and her fiance (Mike Vogel).

Poseidon - Sending Out an SOS

As the ship continues to sink, the group of survivors makes its way through layers of wreckage and piles of corpses to get out through the bottom. But how exactly can you get out from the bottom, when it's supposed to be the most tightly sealed area of a ship? We're not going to say, but what we can tell you is that it makes for some nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat type of suspense!

Poseidon - Original vs. Remake

Poseidon is based on the 1972 disaster classic, The Poseidon Adventure, which starred Gene Hackman. Maybe you've seen it, maybe you haven't, but don't assume that it's just like the original. The remake brings you totally different characters, cool action sequences and awesome special effects.

Poseidon - DVD Features

If you were expecting a ton of knock-your-socks-off features on the Poseidon DVD, you're out of luck. This may be an action-packed flick, but it's certainly not the best bang for your buck as a DVD. You would think that a movie as explosive as Poseidon would have tons of cool behind-the-scenes footage to include, but this DVD comes with nothing more than some French subtitles.

Poseidon - Bottom Line

Make Poseidon a must-see this year. There's never a dull moment in the movie, from start to finish, so you won't want to take your eyes off it!

What's Better - the Original or the Remake?

  • The originals are always better than the remakes.
  • The remake has cooler special effects.
  • They're both really good.
  • I haven't seen either of them.
