(USA, 2006, 97 minutes)

A giant ocean liner is capsized by a rogue wave, and a small group of survivors try to find their way out of the topsy-turvy ship. Pointless, soulless but mercifully brief remake of 1972's The Poseidon Adventure that seems to serve no other purpose than a demonstration of state-of-the-art trick effects and lavish production values; one wonders what cast and crew saw in it.
