The Poseidon Adventure

The Poseidon Adventure ★★½

A very Protestant movie.

[Looking up to God after Linda Rogo falls to her death and a hot pipe bursts, releasing steam that blocks the survivors' escape]: What more do you want of us? We've come all this way, no thanks to you. We did on our own no help from you. We didn't ask you to fight for us but damn it, don't fight against us! Leave us alone! How many more sacrifices? How much more blood? [Scott jumps off the catwalk, grabs onto the hot valve wheel and starts turning it while hanging on] How many more lives? Belle wasn't enough. Acres wasn't. Now this girl! You want another life? Then take me! [The steam ceases. Scott, still hanging onto the valve wheel, turns to face the suriviors] You can make it, keep going! Rogo, get them through! [He lets go of the wheel and falls into the fire-laden water below].
