A stereotypical disaster movie which results in a bridge falling down.
25 January 1999 | by (North Bay, Ontario) – See all my reviews

This movie ran on and on. Absolutely predictable plot which took forever to deliver. We watched it on late night TV in 1984 with some friends. This movie has been a running joke since that time.
