Irregular movie with a great actress
25 February 2000 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Earthquake in New York is an irregular film with a poor special effects but this film is salved by the presence of Melissa Sue Anderson, she is a great actress and she is perfect like Marilyn Blake. The movie had been better if Melissa had been the star. The TV-series, "Aftershock: Earthquake in New York" is better although Melissa don' t appear.
