S.O.S., SS Poseidon

I think that this movie is one of best ones ever made. Reverend Scott is a very good role model, but from the capsizing and on, the ship turns into a death trap full of water, fire, and corpses, some bloody, plus some intense situations which could scare younger viewers

Better than Titanic!

Created by Irwin Allen, nicknamed "master of disaster", this film was an all time favourite. Starring Ernest Borgnine (who unfortunately passed away earlier this year), who is my all time favourite actor did some really great acting, being the bad mouthed always complaining police officer for the ship. Nice special effects and not bad at all for kids. Though they might never travel and a cruise ship again...

Not the best ending, but otherwise this is a greatly intense disaster film that will be remembered

My rating: PG-13 for disaster sequences throughout and some language.

One of the best movies ever made!!

I have seen this movie a million times. It was my favorite when I was little, and it still packs a punch. It is a must-see for anyone!!

You've gotta see this!

This movie was awesome!!! Although this movie is old, it has good special effects. If you are not sure about seeing the newer Poseidon, watch this one first. It's not as graphic.
