Mayor Bruce Lincoln:
Damn! Everyone thinks their crappola is most important.
I don't know. Maybe it's unavoidable. You know, we all get caught up in our roles. Renegade Fire Chief versus Big City Boss Mayor. I called you things and I never knew who you were.
Mayor Bruce Lincoln:
I believe you called me an opportunistic con artist.
I regret that now.

Watch Charlton Heston's EarthQuake (1974) Much Better!!!
The disaster films of the 1990's excluding of course " Volcano" (1997 Tommy Lee Jones.) are just downright bad the special effects are horrible and the characters are pathetic. If you are going to make a disaster film you need to make them epic. If you are going to make a movie about an Eartthquake in new York then for god's sake show New York getting destroyed. The Earthquake sequence in this movie leaves you feeling jipped when it is all over with, and then it leaves you with pathetic characters that you don't care much about for the rest of the film. Another major problem with this film and most of the disaster films of the 90's is that there is absolutely no build up what so ever. If you watch the disaster films of the 1970's there was always a feeling for the first twenty minutes or so of those films that something really bad was going to happen, an impending doom that got you more involved in those films. That is certainly not the case nowadays and especially with " Earthquake In New York". If you want to see a good disaster film most definetly watch " The Towering Inferno" or " Earthquake" and if you are interested in a more updated disaster film catch " Volcano" with Tommy Lee Jones that movie truly delivers the goods.
