Action-filled disaster movie
22 November 2000 | by (Storuman, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This film was one of the very last disaster movies not to be ridiculed by the critics. The main reason for this must have been the realistic and very good fire sequences. While later disaster movies had credibility problems, this one was actually pretty realistic. Well worth a look.
