I love this movie!! There is something wonderfully cathartic about watching an entire city be destroyed by nature (while knowing it's only a movie). And the film-makers were very thorough... offices, highways, universities, police stations... you name it, it gets flattened. And the film is appropriately somber (not like the silly "up-beat" disaster films they make nowadays). Forget "Armageddon" and "Volcano"... this is a REAL disaster flick!
All that and a very young Victoria Principal!
