The tugboat Jenny and the Poseidon are portrayed as fighting the same massive storm in the Mediterranean at the beginning of the film. However, were as the Poseidon is capsized by a huge rouge wave, the Jenny encounters no such wave. See more »
Wow. I must be the only person who loves this movie. Maybe it is the context. I saw both the original Poseiden Adventure and Beyond Poseiden when I was a kid in the 70s. They were on TV so I was maybe 7...9? Anyway, perhaps the people who do not like Beyond Poseiden took the first movie too seriously. Illogical plot? Well.... Inconsistent with the first movie? Well why do a preacher and a retired cop know more about there being no more survivors than the salvage guy who comes by a few hours later? I just figured the conclusions the first gang came up to were just wrong.
Meanwhile Beyond Poseiden has just as many, if not more stars, shows us more cool areas of the ship, and is more adventurous!
