As far as I'm concerned, these are hardly ringing endorsements: Troy was perfectly competent, but rather naff, whereas I mentally rebranded The Perfect Storm as The Perfect Yawn. Having said that, the original Poseidon Adventure was hardly the greatest film ever made, was it?
If they really want to cite Wolfgang Petersen's directorial credentials to advertise his latest film, why on earth don't they mention his rather fun (if implausible) Air Force One? Better still, they should boast in ridiculously MASSIVE letters, "From the Director of Das Boot"—which, quite frankly, actually is one of the greatest films ever made.
If you've never seen Das Boot, do yourself a favour: go and buy yourself the Director's Cut on DVD right now. And make sure you watch it in its original German (with subtitles, if, like me, you don't speak the lingo), rather than the dubbed version. I guarantee you'll end up rooting for the Germans. The original book is highly recommended too.
I always think it's funny that I have to watch Das Boot with sub-titles. Sub titles—geddit? It's a film about a U-Boat, you see.
