Reviewed by Poseidon-3

This horrifyingly bad and automatically inferior sequel to "ThePoseidon Adventure" came and went in theaters so quickly that one couldbe forgiven for not even realizing that it ever existed! The realvictim here was Paul Gallico, the author of the original story. When"PA" was made into a film, the writers changed several things around(as often happens). When plans of a sequel came about, Gallico wrotethe sequel to the novel based NOT on his own great little book, but onthe FILM's storyline. Then the filmmakers discarded his novel "Beyondthe Poseidon Adventure" and went with the version found here. So headjusted his characters and story to fit Hollywood's version, only tohave it abandoned in favor of this rehash. In it, two disparate groupsjoin up to either salvage loot from the overturned vessel or rescue anyleftover survivors. Instantly they are trapped as the boat belches androcks continuously, yet they stay inside to find salvage, linger overconversations with newly discovered passengers and finally run aroundshooting at each other! The inexplicable cleanliness of the sets andutter illogic of the storyline pale in comparison to the hilariouslybad dialogue and the banal music score. Previous, greater disastermovies had majestic scores done by excellent composers. This music hasno memorable opening theme and features inappropriate and discordantmusic during scenes (often a whimsical "Flight of the Bumblebee" typeof thing is heard.) Some of the dialogue has to be heard to bebelieved. One classic scene is when Knight dislocates her shoulderafter grappling to save her blind husband Warden. Award-magnet Knightdoes a terrific job of displaying her injury and is carried over to acorner and revived realistically with smelling salts. Thenpurportedly-kind nurse Jones reveals an utter lack of bedside manner.Does she resort to the standard "You'll only feel a slight prick" or"This won't hurt a bit"??? Nooooo She grabs Ms. Knight's arm and goes,"This is going to hurt a great deal Mrs. Meredith, I'm so sorry!"Apparently, the violence of this scene was so intense that it had to befilmed through debris (fully obscuring Jones' face!) so as not to shockthe audience! The characters are unwaveringly pathetic and annoying(and in many cases, just thinly disguised versions of folks from theoriginal film.) Boyle is mercilessly loud and obnoxious, taking ErnestBorgnine's "type" to a new level of irritation. Cartwright is a littleold to be playing the little girl sort of role that Pamela Sue Martinalready did. Her costume makes her look like a frump. Pickens ishilarious, drawling out lines like, "Who's Svevo? As a matter of fact,who's Suzanne?" in a thick Texas accent. Jones' character is a drippynurse and has to dredge up her own long-ago award just like ShelleyWinters' swimming medal, to no good effect. Warden and Malden vie foraudience sympathy with their afflictions, but don't get any. Field rubsimmediate tarnish on her Oscar for "Norma Rae" with her over-the-top,"Three's Company" - level comedic attempts and Caine should have knownbetter, but this was his period of making bomb after bomb. Still, it'sfun on a camp level to watch once and future Oscar-winners slummingbadly. Hamel, for the brief time she is on screen, is both alluring andamusing. Sadly, this and "When Time Ran Out" would slam the lid on anyhopes of a film career, but she rebounded on television. Knight addssome much needed class, desperately trying to underact and say herlines with dignity amidst all the squalid overacting and preposteroussituations. She is done no favors for this. Sadly, the old VHS and nowthe newly released DVD shear 8 minutes off the film's running time,cutting a lot of Warden, Knight and Jones' scenes, even removing thefact that Warden and Knight are authors! These were sentimental momentsbetween all three and must have been spliced out in order to keep theaction, such as it is, moving. It's a pointless, grave-robbing hack jobintended to wring more money out of the classic original, but whichsank like a stone at the box office. At least now it can be enjoyed forthe audacious mess that it is!

How many movies get the chance of being made by theextraordinary,proficient,astonishing Allen and/or having Caine,Mrs.Field,Savallas,Shirley Jones in the cast?<br><br>Caine&#39;s role,in itself,is a jewel;he just fits in.He is energetic,lucid,sharp, intelligent,manly,as fit as a fiddle.Caine knows how tomake a super-action flick,without needing to be Willis or Ford.Heshould be very proud of his role in &quot;Beyond ...&quot;.For me,this is one ofthe most cherished Caine shows.(Caine is himself a cinema,he did anincredible number of good flicks.)Mrs. Field is enchanting,natural,inventive, fresh, luminous, spontaneous,funny,resourceful.(How do Imiss an actress like her when I see that imbecile girls in so manycheap-looking shows!With few exceptions,such as Miss RachelLuttrell,Miss Torri Higginson,or Mrs. Blalock,did you notice how manyimbecile-looking girls crowd to fill the sets of the shows?)<br><br>The action does not stagnate for a moment.<br><br>Savallas got his bigger/better roles elsewhere;but the villain he doeshere is,as such,memorable and a landmark for the genre.He coins a comicstrip villain.(I mean,Nero in Die Hard 2 ,Alan Rickman in Die Hard ,arezero compared to Savallas in &quot;Beyond ...&quot;.)<br><br>The colors of this movie are delightful.<br><br>And how many shows offer so much fun?For me,only the first two episodesof Stargate Atlantis (Rising (Part 1)&amp;Rising (Part 2)).<br><br>Many people,who commented &quot;Beyond ...&quot;,have expressed a lot of reservesand reticence,about various things;I think they were unjust,and way tooexacting.<br><br>Between 56 and 64 years,Allen made (i.e,directed and/or produced)several disaster movies:the diptych The Poseidon Adventure ,1972,andThe Towering Inferno ,1974&#151;for the movie theaters;then, anotherdiptych&#151;for TV this time: Flood! ,1976,and Fire! ,1977;then atrilogy,for the big screen again: The Swarm ,1978, Beyond the PoseidonAdventure ,1979, When Time Ran Out... ,1980&#151;an activity that wasambitious and often successful.In &#39;80,Allen was 64 years old.In hisdisaster movies that he made during the &#39;70s,Allen uses the entirepalette of the genre.His main merit is,of course,that of creating avery pure form of adventure movies.During &#39;72-&#39;80, The Master ofDisaster also found time for some important TV work.So,he was fordisaster,he was for Sci-Fi,sometimes he was for both of them&#151;and alwaysfor fancy,adventure and fun. Fortunately ,he had the opportunity todevelop fully his thoughts and to express himself plenary.<br><br>Some fans complain that The Master of Disaster&#39;s work wasuneven,unequal;anyway,his best films are matchless in their genre.Theman made at least 9 remarkable feature movies (of which some 6 are verygood&#151;the 5 feature films made between &#39;72 and &#39;80,and also Five Weeksin a Balloon ,1962;but the movies from &#39;59-&#39;61 are worth watching aswell &#133;),several interesting TV movies (in the &#39;70s and &#39;80s),and alsoseveral TV series and/or miniseries.I do not know any other director tobe able of such a continuity in a couple of genres (thedisaster/adventures,and Sci-Fi).

I haven't seen a film try to be so serious, yet I mistook it for a comedy.The performances were hilarious, the dialogue was awful, and for the lifeofme, I don't remember the music, so THAT must have been really bad!!LOL.Another one of those great Irwin Allen films that are filled with hammyactors and bad special effects--but what a fun time towatch!!
