When the city's water supply is shut off the fountain of city hall can be seen going off as well. This would not happen as fountains are not dependent on water mains for operation. See more »

Just another disaster movie.
26 October 1998 | by (Anchorage, Alaska) – See all my reviews

Thirst seemed to be just another disaster movie. Our hero of the story, knowing the extreme danger and threat to the welfare of his family, should have gotten them out of town before the quarantine. The plant manager was incompetent as far as politics are concerned. Why didn't he know where the $15,000,000 went? The mayor was the biggest joke of the entire movie. A liar, a swindler, a finger pointer from the beginning. Sounds like another true politician to me. He should have been run out of town on a rail.
