Far from being the worst remake ever..

On New Year's Eve, the luxury ocean liner Poseidon capsizes after being swamped by a rogue wave. The survivors are left to fight for their lives as they attempt to escape the sinking ship. Poseidon even tho it's a remake of a 1972 film of the same name it's actually better than it gets credit for. The acting from the entire cast was damn good especially Kurt Russell, Josh Lucas and Richard Dreyfuss, the characters are likable for the most part and i was invested on them making out there alive also some of the FX and the CGI were good (not always) and even tho there are some over the top kills in the film it doesn't ruin it at all. Overall Poseidon is a good and watchable remake and far better than it gets credit for. (7/10)

Remakes for a price: This is one, rated at 160 Million Dollars production costs

After providing the masses with new century entertainment with "The Perfect Strom" (2000) and "Troy" (2004), the third movie for Warner Bros. Pictures since the millennium; "Poseidon" directed by Wolfgang Petersen at the age of 64 can not exceed the original "The Poseidon Adventure" (1972), which it intentionally should have with an high-end Hollywood special effects team, a cast stretching from actor Kurt Russell to Richard Dreyfuss, yet mismatching actor Josh Lucas with the fictitious character of Dylan Johns and female parts completely underdeveloped, stuffed with unchallenged actresses from Emmy Rossum to Mia Maestro, in a screenplay by writer Mark Protosevich, which seems have no basic instinct survival conflicts between the characters implanted into the story-line with all changed up names and character origins as the original novel from 1969 by Paul Gallico (1897-1976) suggested and at least had been modestly set into action by 1972er version starring Gene Hackman as Reverend Scott and Ernest Borgnine as the character of Rogo under the direction of Ronald Neame (1911-2010). Here in the 2006er version, everything had been sacrificed for a special effects showcase of stereotype characters in which the character of Robert Ramsey, performed with no further means by actor Kurt Russell, has his introduction in correcting his daughter Jennifer Ramsey of not making out with her boy-friend publicly, while having a glass of single malt whiskey in the five-star-suit of the title-given cruise liner, before entering the cold water of the Atlantic ocean without reaching the surface ever again, asking where the writer of "The Cell" (2000) has dropped his thrill-set to hover the audience at least for 90 Minutes over a sleep-tight-in-your-auditorium-seat of a movie.

Just OK

I have heard people criticizing the dialogue, primarily, but I don't think that is the problem. The actors were fine, the CGI good (not remarkable) and even the dialogue was not terrible. I think it was the lack of character development. There is no one you are really rooting for. There is no dramatic tension, like in the original between Rogo and the preacher. There is no great love, like Manny's and Belle's. No super-smart munchkin to put in his two cents. The timid one in the remake is just not believable, whereas you could tremble along with Nonnie. The characters are two dimensional, and there is nothing to pull you in, to make you care. I know the original has an extra 20 minutes over this remake. I wonder if that extra 20 minutes would have made a difference here? Props to Josh Lucas, Richard Dreyfuss, Emmy Rossum, Fergie & Kirk B.R. Woller, for doing what they could with what they were given.
