Poseidon Update (SPOILER ALERT)

One hour and forty minutes in:

The passengers have actually been able to email for help.

That's right. They emailed for help.

Also, all kinds of British and American Naval and Intelligence types are completely aware of their plight and are sending rescue teams, including Navy Seals!

Sooooo... why is there still over an hour left? In the original movie, we never left the ship.

In this one, we are always flitting from one "situation room" to another. Why did they take such a good, simple, exciting yarn and ruin it with "storytelling skills"?

To quote The Joker, this town needs an enema.
