The Adventure is not quite over!! (by disasterfilm84)
Irwin Allen's production of Beyond the Poseidon Adventure was very exciting to watch. It was always intended for Irwin Allen to make the sequel, but some delays caused it to be shelved for seven years. Micheal Caine acted for Allen for the second time giving the same tempered performance as he did with Allen the previous year in The Swarm. He plays a scrapper and with Karl Malden and Sally Feild who discover the Poseidon still floating upside down and decide to go in her. From the moment they get in there the action and thrills never stop. Then as in the first film they realize they have <more>
to get out again and go through the ship as the the survivors did in the first Poseidon Adventure. Allen also directed this action packed sequel.
###SPOILERS### With a realistic plot, emotional deaths, and lots of explosions, this is one of the best sequel movies ever.Hannah Merideth's death scene is almost identical to that of Acre's in the original, but has more emotion,like Lisolette Mueller's in The Towering Inferno.She dies falling off a ladder, and drowning, due to a cramped shoulder caused by pulling her husband up from a hunk of wreckage.Her and Suzzane's death are the most predictable-Veronica Hamel is not credited in the trailer, meaning it would be easy to kill her off-and Hannah is the one that everybody is <more>
hoping will escape-something that is used in EVERY disaster movie I have seen.The other "good guy" deaths, that of Frank, Wilbur and "Tex", are somewhat different. We don't see Wilbur die, and Frank and "Tex" are shot, the latter just as they make their escape.All things considered, this is a very brilliant movie.
Dangerous quest for a pay cheque. (by PathetiCinema)
This movie is about a group of actors who's paychecks/royalty fees are in the hull of an upturned cruise liner.Michael Caine wants his pay packet/royalty checks but must enter the Poseidon to get it.Sally Field, Karl Malden and Telly Savalas are also seeking their pay cheques/royalty fees and must also board the capsized bank.A few gunfights later and they reach the vault. Each actor loads up the cash and puts it away for a rainy day. They must then exit the ship and try to return to Hollywood for further work.This is a pretty exciting Irwin Allen epic and it's nice to see actors <more>
receiving a good pay packet in the name of entertainment.
This film ranks up there with Psycho II as being one of the greatest sequel ever made! Irwin Allen returns to the setting of his first major picture to create one of his last. Irwin Allen ignored all the aspects of the novel that was written for him, and comes up with a storyline that far surpasses the novel. Watching an all-American film from a British Citizen's point of view is always exiting, normally i would laugh at a character like Tex but in this, it works surprisingly well! Micheal Caine is an inspired choice as a salvage captain. I was a bit unsure of Sally Field's character <more>
at first but as the film went on her character added so mush to the story. Telly Savalas, what can i say? This man is a legend! Ever since i first saw him as Blofeld in On Her Majesty's Secret Service he was the ultimate villain and in this he doesn't disappoint. A lot of the supporting cast are quite memorable too..Slim Pickens as Tex, Peter Boyle who i did get a bit bored of all we seemed to hear was "where's my daughter?" which got a bit annoying after a while.This film does have it's faults, why is still afloat with a hole in the bottom, and most of all WHY THE HELL DOES THE DAMN BOAT EXPLODE AT THE END?? Overall Fantastic effort, no way would this ever surpass the original but it's racing in at its heels.
That is one slowly sinking ship... (by Lebowskidoo)
It's a sequel to a movie that practically screamed "No Sequel" but it's a fun 70's style adventure that they just don't make anymore. It has a great cast and the movie delivers. Sit back, remove your brain for the night and enjoy.
So bad, this is good!! (by SkippyDevereaux)
I haven't seen a film try to be so serious, yet I mistook it for a comedy. The performances were hilarious, the dialogue was awful, and for the life of me, I don't remember the music, so THAT must have been really bad!! LOL. Another one of those great Irwin Allen films that are filled with hammy actors and bad special effects--but what a fun time to watch!!
