Battling the elements once again, Wolfgang Petersen re-creates Ronald Neame's 1972 classic. A tidal wave spells disaster for a boatload of revelers when it capsizes the mammoth vessel, pitching the passengers into a desperate battle for survival.

Scott Hardie: “It was ok.”

This isn't a bad movie, but it's a ho-hum recreation of what remains the much more powerful original, which I suggest renting instead. Like Gus Van Sant's shot-for-shot Psycho remake, you wonder why it goes to such trouble to be so mediocre.
