Excellent recreation of bystander and victim self-help during '89 SF earthquake.
17 July 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This made-for-T.V. film is a realistic, gripping portrayal of the mutual assistance ordinary citizens provided to trapped victims of the Loma Prieta earthquake which caused massive damage throughout the San Francisco Bay Area in 1989. Wonderful photography. The cast melds well known stars (i.e., Rue McClanahan and Yaphet Kotto) with many lesser known actors and even an actual victim, the humorous in the face of adversity, Nicholas Zaninovich.
