The "volcanic ash" was really fine newspaper shavings. See more »
When Harry drives the green pick-up truck over the thinly crusted lava flow, the truck comes off the flow with nothing more than four flat tires and a charred bottom. In reality, lava is capable of temperatures as high as 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit, which would have melted the undercarriage and left them trapped. See more »
Decided to view this picture only because Pierce Brosnan was starring in the film and greatly enjoyed his acting skills besides his appearing as James Bond. Pierce Brosnan,(Harry Dalton),"The Matador",'05, has a bad experience with the death of his wife during a volcano eruption and stayed in his profession as a geologist. Harry discovers from his charts that their could very well be another volcano problem effecting a small popular town. Linda Hamilton,(Rachel Wando),"The Kid & I ",'05 is the mayor and store owner of this town, who has a boy and a girl and is divorced. A romantic spark happens between Linda and Harry and the story develops into a monster of a tale. There is plenty of good action and it really keeps you on the edge of your seats. Pierce & Linda gave outstanding performances and the photography was great through out the entire picture. Very Entertaining
