Goofs

There are so many nautical mistakes in this film that it would take hours for me to list them all. For one, there are no navigation lights (masthead, port and starboard) visible during the shot of the ship sailing at night. Also, the ship's officers and naval crew do not use the proper radio vocabulary when using the communication devices (for example, the word "repeat" is not used. The proper words are "Say Again"). I could go on and on. Did they even have any seafaring advisers for this film? See more »

waterlogged remake
24 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Hollywood lately every things either a sequel or remake or movie version of a TV show.posidon adventure is a bloated TV remake of the Irwin Allen 1972 classic of the same name,but this is not as good as the original.although it does boast a pretty good cast;Rutger hauer as the priest,C Thomas Howell the ships Dr,Bryon Brown,Adam Baldwin,and Steve Guttenberg(famous for the police academy movies)anyway this one is updated,no tidal wave this time but a terrorist attack gone wrong.bear in mind there is more character development in this version then the original,keeping the movie afloat for 2 parts.this was shown on TV in 2005,a year later posidon was released which as far as i know is about the same thing but with a bigger budget and more well known stars.i don't think its a poor movie but i will say it is fair to average.
