When Diane Agostini realizes that she's lost one of her stud earrings, the remaining one switches from one ear to the other. In the shots before she realizes she's lost an earring, it can clearly be seen that she's wearing the remaining earring in her left ear. In the following shot where she actually realizes that she's lost an earring, her left ear is suddenly bare and that's the one she feels. See more »

A good movie...for distaster-flick fans:)
4 August 2000 | by (Upstate NY) – See all my reviews

OK. The genre "disaster film" genrally doesn't mean earth-shattering, brilliant writing. What these movies are all about is the ACTION-something that, i'm pleased to see, the other commenters on this page realize. This movie, i think, has some better writing than others. It sidesteps cliched characters to a certain extent...for example, the mayor is sympathetic and really NOT a mad power-monger. It was refreshing for me to see a person in a position of power in an action movie attempt not to abuse such power for his/her own interests. All the other characters are also appealing...except one. As for the direction, Mikael Salomon truly knows how to stage action...it's all about camera angles. In this film, he uses these to great effect...my personal favorite being the one he uses when 2 characters escape out from under a truck collapsing underground in the nick of time. all-in-all, this is an entertaining movie...and a worthy entry into the disaster-film genre. in fact, i like this better than VOLCANO, a theatrical release from a few years back. i give this movie 3 out of 4 stars.
