The Poseidon Adventure

 (TV) (2005)

The Poseidon Adventure Blu-ray features mediocre video and decent audio, but overall it's a poor Blu-ray release

The Poseidon, an ocean liner bigger than the Queen Elizabeth and Mary combined, is charting its course on New Year's Eve when just after midnight a 90' tidal wave hits. It is the last thing that everyone onboard sees before drowning — the Poseidon is turned upside down, with only a handful of survivors. The lucky few take a journey through the bowels of the ship in an attempt to survive.

For more about The Poseidon Adventure and the The Poseidon Adventure Blu-ray release, see the The Poseidon Adventure Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 2.0 out of 5.

Director: John Putch
Writers: Bryce Zabel, Paul Gallico
Starring: Adam Baldwin, Rutger Hauer, Steve Guttenberg, Bryan Brown, C. Thomas Howell, Peter Weller

The Poseidon Adventure Blu-ray, Video Quality

  2.5 of 5

The Poseidon Adventure's video quality has the odds stacked against it from the get go. For one, this is a made-for-TV movie, and the quality reflects it, from the flat and largely uninspired lighting to the antiquated CGI. The film's 1080p, MPEG-2 transfer only magnifies these flaws, and by cramming three hours of footage onto a BD-25, it shows some issues of its own, mostly in the form of compression artifacts and a few instances of noticeable aliasing on CGI elements. The print itself isn't in the best shape, and you'll count numerous white specks and flecks throughout. Grain is also heavy and persistent, littering the background and the foreground with rampant and often distracting noise. Black levels occasionally crush, but more often than not they take on a soupy, washed-out look that flattens the image. That said, for a TV movie this could have been a lot worse, and the colors, while over-pumped at times, are vibrant, especially royal blues. Clarity is hit or miss. There are a few ultra-crisp shots, mostly in close-up, but much of the film has a soft look that's due to the lighting conditions and/or grainy film stock. You'll never mistake The Poseidon Adventure for a modern theatrical offering, but for what it is it looks okay.


The Poseidon Adventure Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Poseidon Adventure comes with four audio tracks—Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1, Dolby 2.0, and Linear PCM 2.0. I started my listening experience with the Dolby Digital 5.1 track, but soon began to feel that the dialogue was incredibly low in the mix. The DTS 5.1 track (Note: Not HD Master Audio) proved better, with boosted vocal work and a livelier mix overall. For a TV movie, I'd say Poseidon's audio is slightly better than average. Dynamics are fairly solid, from the LFE rumble in the ship's bowels to high-end sound effects that are crisp and detailed. The first third of the film features quiet but substantial ambience in the rears—ballroom chatter and the clanging of cookware in the kitchen come to mind—but when disaster finally strikes, the surround channels get plenty of opportunity to whiz, bang, crash, and gurgle. The discrete effects are sometimes a little clunky, but considering the material, Poseidon sounds better than you might expect.
