The trade reviews of PoseidonBrian Lowry‘s in Variety and Sheri Linden‘s in the Hollywood Reporter — both complain about the lack of character shading and/or revelation and the generally streamlined approach. They don’t seem to get it. It’s a good thing that Poseidon cuts to the chase and is over in 100 minutes or so. Nobody wants emotionalism or depth of character slowing things down or gumming things up.
