About Poseidon

What a way to ring in the New Year.  Just as the passengers aboard the luxury cruise ship Poseidon are tossing back their midnight champagne, a rogue wave 100 feet high comes along and tosses their swanky boat upside down.  Obligatory carnage ensues:  folks are thrown into free fall, crushed by debris, and sucked into the watery abyss through shattered windows.  Huge chunks of the ship collapse, breaking gas lines from which fires erupt, and – of course – the lights go out. 

Miraculously the main ballroom remains intact and most of the surviving partiers follow captain’s orders, huddling together awaiting rescue in the once posh space that is now below waterline.  But not Dylan Johns (Josh Lucas); this professional gambler is not about to hunker down and await his fate.  Determined to find a way out of the wreckage, Johns sets out on his own, only to be collared by cute and irresistible nine-year-old Conor (Jimmy Bennett), who begs Johns to take him and his mother (Jacinda Barrett) along in his quest for escape.  Johns, preferring his odds solo, reluctantly agrees. 

The group is soon joined by fellow passenger Robert Ramsey (Kurt Russell), desperately searching for his daughter Jennifer (Emmy Rossum) and her boyfriend Christian (Mike Vogel).  Earlier that evening, the couple had been terrified to inform dad of their engagement, but their current predicament makes that seem like small potatoes.  By now feeling like the Pied Piper, Johns takes on a shy stowaway (Mia Maestro) and the recently suicidal Richard Nelson (Richard Dreyfuss), who when faced with probable death has suddenly discovered the will to live.  A young waiter from the ship’s crew (Freddy Rodriguez) hooks up with the group, and fortunately he has some useful knowledge of the ship’s layout.  The bonds that spring from shared adversity in so many films don’t fail this time, and the group quickly develops the vital trust that will build their bridge to safety.  Wolfgang Peterson directs this remake of the 1972 classic The Poseidon Adventure.
