Lots of action and it moves along at a good pace.

There\'s not going be a morning after for this seasick sequel of a movie. \"Poseidan\" is the sequel of a better 1972 movie, only this it had a new cast and better special effects. This version is just like the last, people are trying to survive a tide wave that turned the Poseidan upside down. Even if you didn\'t see the 1972 version will find the movie downright stupid. Watch the characters dodging danger and trying to reach the top has all the emotions of a video game. And if you expect Fegie of the Black Eye Peas to sing \"The Morning After,\" you got another thing coming. That song isn\'t in the movie. Too Bad.

"Posiedon" was tough to rate. It's thoroughly enjoyable and best seen on the big screen, where its special effects will be more appreciated. It's just not very good. The dialogue is terrible (thankfully the characters are running or swimming most of the time so we don't have hear them talk). The characters are all one-note, and it's obvious the filmmakers knew it. Each character is given about three minutes before the fit hits the shan and people start drowning. And once that happens, "Poseidon" is a lot of fun in a morbid sort of way. Like a B horror flick, it's fun to guess who's going to die next and how, even if it's really pretty easy to tell from frame one who's going to make it. Still, there's plenty of enjoyable action scenes here, especially in the last twenty minutes, when you'll find yourself holding your breath along with the actors as they swim through ridiculously long stretches of underwater corridor.

So yeah, when this flick comes out on DVD it's not a bad way to spend a slow Saturday night. It's no classic and will be forgotten as soon as it's done, but it's silly, it's cheesy, and it's fun. Just lower your expectations and you'll have a reasonable amount of fun . . . or you could save your money and go see something that'll entertain you and make you think, if you're into that . . .

** out of 4, plus one secret star for the guilty pleasure aspect. Shhhh . . .

A disposable remake of "The Poseidon Adventure" which does nothing to enhance the original. It does, however, give the technical people a chance to show off their visual effects wizardry and the audience has a chance to see a bunch of recognizable movie stars work their way out of a disaster.

Some roles in this movie are well-done, others are throw-away. Kurt Russell does a decent job, but Richard Dreyfuss is wasted. Emmy Rossum is great to watch, but Kevin Dillon is just channeling his brother (I actually thought he was his brother).

Poseidon is definitely acceptable as a rental, but not much else.
