The idea of being trapped at the top of a towering skyscraper as the lower levels slowly burn to the ground is an incredible premise for a disaster film. Add to that, a cast filled with legends, and this follow up of sorts to Poseidon Adventure (1972) should have been much better. None of the characters outside of Richard Chamberlain’s insufferable jerk are even slightly memorable, easily eclipsed by the special effects.
