|Ok, I wasn't expecting all that much. My expectations weren't met by half. To call this movie a piece of shit would be an insult to fecal matter all over the world.
Apparently on the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's sinking, a new state of the art version is going to sail from New York to presumably Southampton. Meanwhile, there are melting ice caps creating tidal waves in the Atlantic. The Titanic II gets hit by a tidal wave carrying an iceberg-you would think the wave would be enough? A Coast Guard captain working with a NOAA team try's to reach the T II in time to do...whatever they could do in a helicopter carrying 3 people. It seems the captains daughter is onboard the ship and he is going to try to save her. Now, while the passengers (from the looks of them, they are all winners of a lottery put on for homeless drifters) are running around screaming and falling, the ship gets hit by ANOTHER wave and is capsized! Yes, the Titanic II becomes the Poseidon!! Plot points are lifted from "The Abyss", "Beyond the Poseidon Adventure", "Airport 1975" and a slew of others. As an example of how stupid this turd of a movie is this is the set up for the climax: The captain hands like 20 feet of nylon cord to his friend and dives out of the helicopter and swims for the ship. Now the ship is now underwater and gliding to the bottom, but he manages to go inside the ship, locate his daughter and boyfriend, and swim out of the ship with them..remember this is all while the ship is plummeting to the bottom! I am not kidding. The FX in this movie are some of the worst ever. The cast is basically a bunch of no names except for "Willard" star Bruce Davison as the Coast Guard captain & Dick Van Dykes grandson playing the vaguely studly hero.
