It's fast-moving, it's got fine special effects, the hero and heroine are pure and quick-thinking, the bad people die badly, and the script draws its fair share of laughs.

Empire
A rollicking cat-and-mouse thriller in bad weather. And no dog.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
The characters don't stay still long enough for the audience to worry about them. The high-priced actors (Freeman is especially wasted) are so much flotsam in the big water-tank action scenes.
50
A well-cast disaster movie more notable for special effects and stunts than for credible drama.
50
A stupid movie -- but a deliriously stupid movie, which gives it a certain grandeur.

Christian Science Monitor
Salomon directed the silly but diverting action yarn, which benefits from the talents of Freeman, Quaid, Driver, and White.
40
A better disaster movie than it is a thriller.

ReelViews
It's not just about a disaster, it is a disaster.
25
Chicago Sun-Times
One of those movies that never convince you its stories are really happening.
20
Austin Chronicle
Tired and formulaic.
