The lava was primarily made of methylcellulose, the thickening agent used in fast-food milkshakes. See more »
As the lava flows up to the K-rail dam, it flows around street lights and traffic light poles. Flowing magma is between 700°C and 1350°C. Aluminum, with a melting point of 660°C, would have melted as soon as the lava reached it. A steel chain link fence melts into the flow. Depending on its composition, steel melts between 1050°C and 1550°C. See more »
I'm not going to pretend that this movie is realistic. It isn't. But if you want to just sit down and watch a film with action, drama and entertaining characters, then this is the film for you.
Most disaster films are unrealistic, have no science behind them and if you think about them too much just get worse and worse. This movie is no exception. However, it is still a brilliant film if you want to sit down and not think too hard, or if you want to put a movie on without having to give it your full concentration. Personally, I think this film is great. There are better films out there, including better disaster films, but there are so many films that are ten times worse yet get better reviews. That's probably because they have better actors or are more realistic - but the job of a movie is to entertain, and this film does that brilliantly.
