The Poseidon Adventure

An exciting all-star disaster flick is about an ocean liner that tips over due to a giant tidal wave. Gene Hackman plays a preacher who attempts to lead a handful of people willing to follow him to the surface. Can they make it despite the fact that the ship is sinking? The actors are believable in their roles and Shelley Winters turns in an exceptional performance as an old, fat lady who pushes along despite the odds. Stirring!
