Goofs

Doctor Dalton reports that there is enough carbon dioxide coming out of the ground to kill trees and wildlife. While this is true for animals (which would suffocate), trees and other plants would thrive in heightened carbon dioxide levels. He means sulfur dioxide, which is toxic to both plants and animals and would account for the increased acidity in the water. Carbon Dioxide is deadly to trees and other plants in high enough amounts.

Quotes

Harry Dalton: Ever been deep sea fishing?
[the Children nod no]
Harry Dalton: Neither have I. Listen, when we get out of here, we'll go to Florida, and we'll get us a boat, and gather all of the yummy bait that we can possibly get our hands on, then we'll catch us a big, old fat fish.

Pierce & Linda Gave a Great Performance
8 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

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
