There is something terribly wrong with Poseidon – more than the fact that they are remaking “The Poseidon Adventure.” Rather than merely tell you what is wrong with the Poseidon, I am going to provide you with some images from the trailer – and I’m going to let you see if you can identify what is wrong here.
Scanning the horizon, he sees it – a Rogue Wave; a monstrous wall of water over one hundred feet high, bearing down on them with tremendous speed. He tries to steer the ship away from maximum impact but it’s too late.
