Skip it. Watch Dante's Peak instead.
19 June 2000 | by (Cambridge, MA) – See all my reviews

Ow. Pain. Lots of pain. From the horrible acting, to the impossible situations, to the complete and utter lack of geology, this movie left a bad taste in my mouth. Even When Time Ran Out had a more realistic eruption. I've never seen such a pathetic pyroclastic flow in my life. "Forming a new magma chamber under the west face," my foot.

If you want to see a volcano movie that makes only a few mistakes (most of them being exaggerations), watch Dante's Peak.
