A cruise ship succumbs to a terrorist act and capsizes on New Year's eve. A rag-tag group of survivors, spearheaded by a priest and a homeland security agent, must journey through the upside down vessel and attempt an escape.
After "The Poseidon Adventure", in which the ship got flipped over by a tidal wave, the ship drifts bottom-up in the sea. While the passengers are still on board waiting to be rescued, two rivaling salvage parties enter the ship on search for money, gold and a small amount of plutonium. Written by

The only Irwin Allen disaster movie not to receive an Academy Award nomination. (Even the critically mauled The Swarm (1978) and When Time Ran Out... (1980) managed Best Costume Design nominations.) See more »
Only 50 metres (approximately) of the hull of the Poseidon remains above water when boarded by the salvage/medical team because the front of the ship is sinking lower and lower into the water. Yet all the decks inside the ship are horizontal. For the decks to be horizontal, the ship would have to be sitting level in the water. 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!
