In the intervening years since the movie, the LA Metro has indeed been working towards extending subway service to Beverly Hills, albeit on its Purple Line rather than its Red Line as depicted. One of the proposed stops is at the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue, where they dammed the lava flow along the Miracle Mile. See more »

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?

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.
