Computers, electronics, and anything electrical will always short out and not work submerged water. The Bow Thrusters are all controlled by a computer. When Kurt Russell swims through 150 feet of water to turn them off, all of the electronics controlling the thrusters are completely submerged in water. None of these electrical devices should be functioning at all. The Bow Thrusters should be been non operational due to all the computer equipment being under water and shorted out. See more »
The special effects in Poseidon were excellent, but there was a combination of unsatisfactory direction, acting, and editing. Don't get me wrong, some parts were award-worthy, but others were somewhat overacted and too dramatic.
One awarding moment was when the boy almost drown. I would have done exactly the same if I was his father (mother). Also when Kurt Russell began convulsing, i think it was very well acted.
I would get this movie on DVD. The synopsis is exciting and suspenseful. But, one thing my mother and I commented on... Titanic is 150% better!
