Don't lose your time!
27 August 2001 | by (Brasilia, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Boring disaster movie - in fact, completely out of time - about an earthquake in New York and the problems and perils which a group of people suffer in the process. A lame screenplay, full of cardboard performances and ridiculous special effects. Only Cinthia Gibb is a delight to see.

I give this a 3 (three) only because Cinthia is here but don't lose your time with this one. If you're an earthquake addict, see "Earthquake" instead. This last one is not a great movie too but compared to this one seems a Orson Wells autentic jewel.
