A new review from Nick at Nite
Poseidon. If you have seen the original, stay at home. If you have not seen the original, then buy a ticket for this movie. It is just as good as the original, but does not really add anything new. It is honestly less of a remake and more a modernization. The Carpenters have been replaced with Fergie (Nine). Gene Hackman is now Kurt Russell (Big Trouble in Little China). The older couple is now Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws) (he is such a great actor he can play the role of two people). The boat is newer and fancier. The special effects are crisper. Well some of them are. I give it an “A” if you have not seen the original. I give it a “C” if you have seen the original. No new ground here.
