Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


In 1972, Poseidon’s distress was released, which was the first real disaster film. So far, there are few films of the same type comparable to his success.

“Poseidon’s distress” has a far-reaching impact. A side example is that two years later, in 1974, Irwin Allen, the producer of Poseidon, made a comeback and shot another disaster film “burning skyscrapers”.

However, in 1972, when Irwin Allen prepared to shoot the “Poseidon distress”, it was not smooth. Fox made a series of failed big films and was planning to tighten production funds. The “Poseidon distress” with a budget of 5 million bears the brunt. Fox intends to terminate the shooting plan.

Irwin Allen finally persuaded fox to invest half, and he borrowed the other half from his friends.

The film was not well funded, but it contributed to its success in another way. There were no popular stars in the film, but several old actors with outstanding acting skills were hired to play. This makes some characters in the film impressive. The only popular star in the film is Gene Hackman, who is one of the best actors at any time. In addition, Ernest Borgnine was also an Oscar winner. He played a former sheriff in the film and had a wonderful opponent with Kim Hackman. Another old actor Shelley Winters performed particularly well in this film. In the remake of the new Poseidon this year, the director Wolfgang also said that we can’t reproduce Shelley Winters’ performance in the old version.

Producer Irwin is a filmmaker who loves big scenes very much. Despite the shortage of funds, the film is meticulous in every scene. A very important feature of Poseidon in distress is that in most scenes of the film, Poseidon is upside down. In the film, many very detailed scenes are made, including upside down restaurant, upside down barber shop and upside down toilet. The lifelike is amazing and makes people feel like they are in “anti demon city”.

Although this is a disaster film, director Ronald neame is good at making literary films. So he tried to dig the depth of the characters and injected a strong humanistic thinking into the film. I think this is the main reason for the success of the film. The lack of this aspect also makes the remake of the new Poseidon mediocre.

A good disaster film should not only use film stunts to show the terrible disaster scenes, but also show the efforts and struggles of human beings under great disasters. The death of the Poseidon is commendable in this regard, and even brings a sense of religion in the performance of human struggle against their own destiny.

How should mankind behave in the face of sudden disasters. There are three groups of people in the film. The first group was led by ten rebellious missionaries. They tried to climb to the tail of the ship, the weakest position on the ship, and planned to break through there. In fact, neither the leading missionary nor his wavering followers are sure whether their direction is necessarily correct. They just believe in their own judgment.

The rebellious missionary played by Kim Hackman is a very distinctive person. His missionary emphasizes that people should strive to save themselves rather than waiting for God’s help. So when he encountered a disaster, he tried to lead others out of trouble.

The second group in the film is the group left in the restaurant. They are afraid of the danger on the road of self rescue and prefer to stay in place and wait for rescue. The missionary tried to persuade them to find a way out together, but to no avail. Among these people, one was a colleague of the missionary and the other was an old missionary. Kim Hackman asked the colleague to leave together before leaving. His old colleague said to him, you speak for strong people, these people will die, but I must stay with them.

Actually, I agree with him. People should really try to save themselves. Men should be self-improvement. However, in this case, what else does God need to do? I always hope I can be stronger, so I am also opposed to all religions (from the spiritual level, many religions also try to explain the physical world with their own teachings, which is even more despised by me). However, this is from my personal point of view. I also admit that most people’s hearts are too weak for this cold world. Therefore, religion must exist and stay with them, even in the face of death.

The third group was met by a group of ten missionaries walking on the Broadway. The group were also looking for an exit. They followed the ship doctor to the bow. The missionary tried to explain to them that the bow was silent in the water. However, these people don’t care where they are going. All they want is for everyone to follow one person. “Why” is too complicated for them.

But these people have their power. Even some people in the group of ten said, why don’t we follow them when so many of them go in that direction. Following itself becomes a reason. Missionaries had to risk proving their theories correct.

The subversive ship is actually a symbol of our world. He is always in the midst of drastic changes. Each of us should choose where to go. It is a pity that for the weak human mind, the fear of retreat and blind follow is the easiest choice, while the brave and rational choice is so difficult, but that is also the only way to survive and develop.

The beginning of “Poseidon distress” said that as long as a few people escaped from the disaster, it was a very frustrating prediction.

IMDB scored 6.9 (8410 people voted), and I gave 7 points.
