Sometimes magma can find one of those fissures and rise up through it.
Lava? Right here in L.A?
It is one of the possibilities.
We have a history of that here in the downtown area?

BAD NEWS - Unlikeable female lead in Anne Hesch, who had too foul a mouth for me. Other irritating characters with stupid dialog. A predictable ending with the needlessly drawn out save-the-daughter scene trying for maximum suspense.
GOOD NEWS - Some awesome disaster scenes. Hollywood's special-effects just keep getting more awesome as the years go on. A fast-moving story that was just about the right length. A likable lead character played by Tommy Lee Jones.
Overall, a movie that keeps your attention but doesn't get your respect with the dumb dialog.
