A New Years cruise that is the height of luxury for the guests aboard turns out to be anything but a luxurious relaxing vacation. Aboard the ship "Poseidon", a ship named. for the God of the sea... The guests learn exactly what the mythological God is capable of. Shortly after the clock strikes midnight on New Years... The clock ticks down towards their impending doom. A rogue wave overtakes the ship and as it capsizes, it takes many lives with it. In the main theater/lounge, many survivors gather, at the Captain's word... Many decide to stay and wait for rescue. A few decide to find a way out. These include a variety of folks from a playboy to a mother and child and even the former Governor of New York to name a few. We get to see what this group of individuals go through as they make their way to the surface. Everything from heroic efforts to situations that are strictly Hollywood created. This adventure shows us how far some will go for survival. Will they make it to the surface? What will happen along the way? It is simply a low budget remake of the original " The Poseidon Adventure ". Though the story is similar, the characters differ as well as the quality. There are multiple production and story flaws. As with most remakes, this fails to live up to the original. It's worth watching but definitely, approach with skepticism.
