Reviews
Mine: One of the best of all the distaster movies. I like these things.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Mindless but engrossing, highly charged entertainment--the vanguard of the decade's ``disaster film'' genre. Luxury cruise ship capsized by tidal wave, leaving small band of survivors to make way to top (bottom) of ship and hopefully escape. Introductory sequences are laughably bad, but one soon gets caught up in the story and ignores script's weaknesses. Oscar-winning song: ``The Morning After''; also earned a special Oscar for special effects. Sequel: BEYOND THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE. Panavision.
