I disagree with the absolute derision in the pan of Poseidon written by Wall Street Journal‘s Joe Morgenstern, which I can’t link to because the WSJ is cheap with its freebies. But I find it perversely enjoyable nonetheless: “A $150 Million Wreck…Shallow Story, Flat Acting Sink Remake of Poseidon…[it’s] a deeply dreadul movie — no, a shallowly dreadful movie — that’s too unpleasant and repetitive to be entertaining.” I swear to God he’s being overly harsh. This is not a hateful flick. It’s nothing, but it’s not that bad. It’s an intentionally empty big-budget disaster movie, and I don’t think it’s fair or porportionate for a seasoned critic to walk up to a huge pile of horse manure and say, “Eeewww, this is awful…it smells like horse manure!
