Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.
It is New Year's Eve, and over 2,000 passengers & crew are ringing in the New Year aboard the huge cruise ship 'Poseidon' when it capsizes on the open sea in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean! A small group of survivors find themselves unlikely allies in a battle for their lives. Preferring to test the odds alone, career gambler Dylan Johns ignores captain's orders to wait below for possible rescue and sets out to find his own way to safety. What begins as a solo mission soon draws others, as Dylan is followed by a desperate father searching for his daughter and her fiancée--a young couple who hours before couldn't summon the courage to tell him they were engaged and now face much graver challenges.

The computer generated effects are great. A wonderful cast, very capable of producing a good story. The wave hits in about 10 minutes into the movie before we get to know much about the characters. The father and 19 year old daughter have a beautiful suite, but is the boyfriend a guest in the same suite? Yes, we do find out some character traits as the movie progresses, but to me I just didn't give a care about any of characters. This could have been a great tear jerker, full of emotion. But instead it was a roller-coaster ride at sea. I kept wanting to hear "The Morning After" as heard in the first Poisiden film. The music was good, but for me not memorable.
