    Wolfie seems to be getting labeled as a all flash little substance director these days :(

    Well that's the impression I get from the trailers.

    Petersen hasn't made a real quality movie since In The Line of Fire.

    Trailers never captured my attention anyway, looked lame from the start.

    Does Josh Lucas die??? If he does, I'll pay double.

    Who dies:

    Nope. Lucas lives and Kurt Russell dies. Pretty much everyone from the main group lives.

    I still subscribe to that theory

    Poseidon seems to have a lot going against it from minimal marketing and lacklustre interest and now negative reviews

    The only thing sort of making me want to see Poseiden is the fact that its being shown in IMAX.

    Saw it last night and enjoyed it. There's no story and the acting is not first rate, so of course the critics will hate it. But it's an intense ride like Twister etc. Definitely not for kiddies and claustrophobic people.

    I wish only hits for Kurt Russel because he is one of the coolest guys on Earth. This was especially confirmed when I heard him talk about how he loves Led Zeppelin. :up:
    Everything I've seen makes the movie look like a made-for-TV movie though.

    I'm not doing anything this weekend, so I'll probably check it out. I'm sure it'll be fun.

    I'm skipping it. Just doesn't look like it has anything going for it. Once you've seen 15 ship disasters, you've seen them all. :o

    Oddly enough, just a few months ago there was a made for tv Poseidon Adventure remake.

    Nice to know Kurt's a Zeppelin fan.

    From the start this looked to me like a derivative "Perfect Storm meets Titanic" thing... I just don´t care about this.

    WOW! Honestly I knew that Posseidon will not be so good as movie and in box ofice, but...

    It looks like this movie will be really bad and will get bad WOM. Now I think it will not get even $130m.

    According to two reviews at RT, it's subtly racist as far as who lives and dies. Though any horror movie over the past 30 some odd years could be blamed for the same thing. :o

    Snake Pliskin cannot be killed, no matter what Wolfgang Petersen does to him. :o
