    The Poseidon Adventure

Rating:

Disaster:

Sinking Ship

Plot Summary:

A massive tidal wave created by an underwater earthquake has caused the SS Poseidon to capsize. Now she floats upside down in the middle of the ocean and is quickly filling with water. The surviving passengers must now find a way to get to the ships hull where they hope to be able to find a way out of "hell upside down".

Comments:

A must see for everyone, not just disaster lovers. Excellent characterisation, the special effects are great, and the suspense is fantastic. The story keeps you watching from start to finish and every character is thoroughly enjoyable to watch.

Special Effects:

The effects are some of the most chilling and exciting ever filmed. Every shot from the tidal wave to the rising waters in the engine room are beautifully created and wholly believable. A fantastic job!
