Product Description

A monstrous tidal has left the luxury liner Poseidon capsized mid-ocean and its few survivors struggling to reach safety in an upside-down world. But The Poseidon Adventure was only the thrilling start. You must go Beyond the Poseidon Adventure to complete the white-knuckle suspense. Under producer/director Irwin Allen, Michael Caine and Sally Field head an all-star cast caught in the crippled craft's flaming corridors and bursting bulwarks. Tug skipper Caine, first mate Karl Malden and passenger Field enter the foundering vessel hoping for salvage rights, miraclulously finding more survivors. But others have come aboard, led by sinister Dr. Stefan Svevo (Telly Savalas). He wants a priceless cargo of plutonium - and will kill for his plunder!

Additional Scenes
Theatrical Trailer:Disaster movie trailers

When Maureen McGovern sang the torchy hit "The Morning After" in the original Poseidon Adventure, this probably wasn't what she had in mind. But for viewers, this post-disaster disaster film--which takes place immediately after the original Poseidon capsized--is fearlessly campy and surprisingly entertaining. As per the recipe for '70s catastrophe movies, Beyond the Poseidon Adventure (directed and produced by the original's Irwin Allen) boasts a top-notch ensemble cast. Michael Caine is the crusty, opportunistic tug captain who comes across the wreck of the Poseidon and immediately declares, "Salvage! Salvage is our salvation." Along for the ride on Caine's tug are Karl Malden and a still ingénue-ish Sally Field. They meet up mid-ocean with the suave doctor/rescuer Telly Savalas, who may not be all he says he is. And inside the wreck, incredibly, there are survivors. The film may follow a fairly predictable formula by this time (1979), but it's fun nonetheless. The effects are just right, there's plenty of treachery and tension to keep things moving along merrily, and the capsizing of the boat means the set consists of upside-down ship innards (blessedly, this also means the shag carpeting is on the ceiling, rarely seen). Families and couples are wrenched apart, unscrupulous bastards reveal hearts of gold, and the plucky ones (almost) always survive. Among the rest of the cast are Shirley Jones as the Poseidon's nurse, Peter Boyle as a passenger and concerned dad, and a baby-faced Mark Harmon as a farming kid from "back home" in Iowa, cute as the early-years Beatles. Extras include a vintage making-of featurette (perms! elephant bells!) and a montage of the era's disaster-film trailers, a movie-buff time capsule in itself. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars The Adventure Concludes - finally! August 24, 2006
At last!!! I have been waiting for this movie to be released for years.

This movie helps bring the original movie to a logical conclusion. The original left me wandering what had happened to the rest of the people on board, and did any more survive? This gives a very credible answer, while telling you it's own story. The cast is good and the action while not as thrilling as the first movie's is every bit as good in it's own way.

I cannot understand the negative reviews for this. I found it to be a really good movie done by the man who gave us such gems as Towering Inferno. Irwin Allen knew how to make a good disaster movie and people must remember that this was made in the days when special effects weren't as good as they are today. I found the sets etc to be fairly realistic looking (I have never been in such a situation, so cannot tell truly) and passed along the feeling of unreality in a world turned upside down.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sequel to The Poseidon Adventure. June 17, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
The original film, The Poseidon Adventure (1972) was a huge success. It helped to energize the disaster film genre. Having an all-star cast was also the big boost that audiences love to see. It was followed by Earthquake (1974), The Towering Inferno (1974), Airport 1975 (1974), Airport '77 (1977), Airport '79--The Concorde (1979) and Meteor (1979).
This paved the way for a sequel to "The Poseidon Adventure" (1972), albeit, seven years later, but the storyline takes place after the end of the first film which makes Beyond The Poseidon Adventure (1979) a delight to watch including a new all-star cast: Michael Caine, Sally Field, Telly Savalas, Peter Boyle, Jack Warden, Shirley Knight, Slim Pickens, Shirley Jones, Karl Malden, Veronica Hamel, Mark Harmon, Angela Cartwright.
A salvage crew whethers the storm to get to the Poseidon ship. The survivors got out, but now the salvage crew must go in and why not take some treasures with them too. Telly Savalas plays a tycoon with his guard crew has exactly the same thing in mind. Once inside the ship, they take the same path as the survivors did and it does look familar, but they find some other passageways to explore and they find more people alive. That's what makes this film fun. Going in is one thing, but trying to get back out is another. This cruise ship is still moving and exploding. It could totally sink in any minute.
2 Remakes:
NBC/Hallmark has made their own " The Poseidon Adventure" television mini-series starring Adam Baldwin and Steve Guttenberg. It will be broadcast on NBC, November 20, 2005.
Warner Brothers will be releasing a new version, "POSEIDON", on May 12, 2006 for the movie theatres. The all-star cast will include Kurt Russell, Richard Dreyfuss, Emmy Rossum and Josh Lucas.
Both versions will be different.

3.0 out of 5 stars The morning after the night before December 6, 2006
By Meesha
I loved the original Poseidon Adventure, and looked forward to seeing the sequel, and the recent remake. (The latter which I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing!) While it's not a patch on the original, it was still an above average sequel.

Beyond the Poseidon Adventure makes use of old sets, and also keep your eyes peeled for a shot of one of the dead from the previous film just to keep the continuity. (Although I think it's just an actual shot from the previous film.) Most of the actors are doing their best with the script, and most of the characters are the exact same as the previous characters. For example, Michael Caine's a bossier version of Gene Hackman's character, there's Wilbur, who's another Rogo all over again. I don't think the original really called for a sequel to be made, but yes, it does actually work.

I did find Sally Field's character really whiny, and her hair, oh my god, even on my worst hair days, my hair looks nowhere near as bad as hers did! And it's amazing how she's 60 now, and still looks exactly the same. Apart from the hair of course.

Rather than follow the usual course for the sequel, trying the story again with another group of survivors trying to get out, they try it with people trying to get IN to the boat. A pretty impressive storyline, considering some sequels do the exact same storyline over again.

I'd definitely give this film a shot if you love movies dealing with water (like me, for some sick reason), or just loved the original.

3.0 out of 5 stars Follow-up is no worse than the original March 7, 2001
By Funky D
Format:VHS Tape
I had the perspective of viewing "The Poseidon Adventure" and "Beyone the Poseidon Adventure" back to back, having never seen either one previously. In this context, the sequal holds up better to the original (which was also less than stellar) then most of the reviewers have given it credit for.
True, this movie suffers from a lot of clichés and some bad inconsistencies (such as the trek through the kitchen which had been flooded in the original film). Again, the cast, now headed up by Michael Caine, Sally Field and Telly Savalas, does a decent job with a mediocre script.
Caine and Fields encounter the capsized Poseidon "the morning after" and proceed to board it to find gold that had been stashed aboard. Along the way, their party grows as they encounter survivors who Gene Hackman's gang failed to pick up on their way out of the ship. Conflict ensues when Savalas' gang arrives to pluck out a cache of weapons that were being smuggled to them. Needless to say, the gang seeks to eliminate the scavangers because they "know too much". There's even a shootout as the cache of weapons is found. Needless to say, a few of the stranded passengers are lost along the way.
Fortunately, Michael Caine was able to climb to respectability after this.
