As for action,this somewhat dramatic remake gives a one-two punch.If we compare it to the 1972 smash,there is little room for sincerity and inner feelings.Buttons,Borgnine,Albertson and Hackman made you shed a tear for the departed.In this ,though,we have little room for the heartbreak and feelings we noted in 1972.

Really expensive remake finds a team of A-List cast drowning in tons of CG effects, a bad script, and very bad soap opera talk. Warner Brothers lost money over this and it was a real flop at the movie screens

Brian Lowry
Thanks to its simple construction, Wolfgang Petersen's large-scale liner moves reasonably well, though anyone with the faintest memory of its 1972 predecessor will wonder where most of the plot went. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
More than characters, dialogue and lighting, here Petersen is interested exclusively in suspense of the will-he-or-won't-he-be-crushed-by-that-falling-flaming-elevator variety. Full Review

Poseidon is a sodden saga, with a script that is awash in clichs. It nearly drowns under the weight of its own soggy tedium. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Pretty much pure boilerplate: a reasonably well-executed throwaway that, when you finally get around to seeing it in its proper setting, will make you glad you decided to travel by air instead of by sea. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Poseidon is devoid of anything that might conjure up memories of the Winslet/DiCaprio coupling. Its straightforward action/adventure approach is both a strength and a weakness. Full Review
