Bill and Jo Harding, advanced storm chasers on the brink of divorce, must join together to create an advanced weather alert system by putting themselves in the cross-hairs of extremely violent tornadoes.
A giant, reptilian monster surfaces, leaving destruction in its wake. To stop the monster (and its babies), an earthworm scientist, his reporter ex-girlfriend, and other unlikely heroes team up to save their city.
Something unspeakably chilling is ultimately starting to heat up at The City of Los Angeles! Beneath the famed La Brea Tar Pits, a raging volcano has formed, raining a storm of deadly fire bombs and an endless tide of white-hot lava upon the stunned city! Written by

While Roark and Dr. Barnes are looking for lava under a street, Barnes comments the nonsense to build a big city with intense geological activity, and Roark answers mentioning a passage from Holy Bible. His passage is Matthew 7:26, which says: "...And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand". See more »
During the first big tremor, the city has a blackout, and goes completely dark. Car headlights, which are not attached to the power grid, should still be visible. See more »
We're going to put as many people in front of it as it takes. Listen up, people! Let me tell you what's south of us: no more museums, no more department stores, just homes! People! If we turn and run now, they're going to be defenseless! You don't like my plan? That's good. Give me a another plan, but don't tell me we're backing out!

Tommy Lee Jones plays Mike Roark, head of the Office Of Emergency Management(OEM) who is contacted by Dr. Amy Barnes(Anne Heche) who is concerned that Earth tremors will lead to an underground eruption of a volcano, as temperatures within are increasing. He scoffs, but she is proved right when fireballs emerge from the volcanic eruption, and Los Angeles is threatened by a moving wall of lava. How can the team stop it, and save the city? Slickly made but implausible film might have been better served moving the location to Hawaii, where it might be believable. Anne Heche shines, but other characters are dumb or superfluous, though this still remains a semi-watchable popcorn film, but little more.
