A disaster film that keeps you on the edge of your seat
I have seen many disaster films in my day but The Poseidon Adventure is truly a film that will leave you on the edge of your seat because each moment after the being hit by a tidal wave is unpredictable. The survivors have to find a way out of the ship and a preacher (Gene Hackman) has to lead them out that becomes dangerous and often scary situations they face. Each cast member played their parts with emotion that becomes dramatic at times. All in all I thought this was better then the Titanic. I know they did a remake of this film in 2005 but as I always say, stick with the classic.
Twice as good, half as long
If you have three and a half hours to kill, do NOT watch Titanic. Take the three and a half hours and watch the Poseidon Adventure twice. Okay, it’s campy and it’s the consummate 70s disaster flick, complete with ensemble cast.
But when you put them up against each other, Poseidon Adventure is just leagues better than Titanic. Titanic is over three hours, and centers around two characters. In that time, the two characters are hardly developed at all, they’re terribly one dimensional and probably could be summed up in about a sentence each.
Compare this to Poseidon Adventure. Stars off with a dozen main characters, and in half as much time, they all have their own personalities, quirks, and are real identifiable people. And far from the Titanic tendency of stamping “I’m gonna die” on people’s foreheads, in the Poseidon Adventure you don’t know initially who’s going to die- or at least not how or when anyway.
The Poseidon Adventure is just a more interesting movie. It may not be as glossy or as pretty, but it’s got it where it counts… it’s just a better film.
