Did You Know?

Trivia:
The movie was filmed based on the ending of the movie The Poseidon Adventure (1972) when the ship still remains afloat. The original script called for the ship to sink after the survivors take off in a helicopter, but when it did not turn out right, it was therefore decided to keep the ship afloat.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: The ships hull for the sea scenes was built only slightly bigger than was visible above the water line. To continue the illusion under the water line the hull had a fabric skirt that was painted red which fades to blue. This fabric skirt can be seen at the end of the movie when Capt Turner dives back underwater to find Wilbur.See more »
Quotes:
Captain Mike Turner:[after jumping over a hole that's 6 feet long] Coming Doctor?
Captain Stefan Svevo:[on the other side of the hole with his men] Well I've been thinking Captain, we're separated at two cabins. We'll go left, and you and your folly continue forward.
Captain Mike Turner:Is that an order?
Captain Stefan Svevo:Hopefully it's a constructive suggestion.
Captain Mike Turner:All right Doctor. We'll play it your way.

Beyond Poseiden, 19 December 2006
Author: drgoochmobile from Canada

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!
