* InfantImmortality: Subverted. Connor survives, of course. But he couldn't possibly have been the only child on the ship.



* ShoutOut: The eerie shot of the ship sinking beneath the waves, disappearing into the gloomy depths of the ocean, is very similar to the final shot of the ''Andrea Gail'' in ''Film/ThePerfectStorm''

* BlatantLies: "Kick him off! He won't die!" (Not that anyone was buying it, most especially the victim, [[spoiler:Valentin]]).
** Possibly averted, if the line was "Kick him off! You'll both die!"; it's pretty hard to make out what they're saying.



* FamousLastWords: [[spoiler: Valentin]]: "I got this, you go."

* StraightGay: Richard. Not until he reveals to his friends that "''he''" met someone else" do we get any indication that he's homosexual.

* HistoryRepeats: According to promotional material, the ''Poseidon'' is on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, possessing the name of the God of the Sea (which is considered a BlasphemousBoast by sailors). In the middle of the Atlantic, the ship is met with disaster and sinks with massive loss of life. Thinking about a [[UsefulNotes/RMSTitanic certain other ship]] yet?



** Actually, a monitor at Diego Garcia naval base indicates Indian Ocean.
