Trivia

The cello concerto written for this film by Erich Wolfgang Korngold was composed as two shorter pieces for filming purposes. After the film was released, they were combined as two movements of a finished concerto, making Korngold's "Cello Concerto" one of the shortest on the concert hall stage, at about 12 minutes.

Awful: Predictable and Full of Clichés
30 January 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Brian Goodman (Craig Sheffer) is a scientist specialized in drilling operations. He aborts a dangerous perforation, leaded by Alan Morrisey (Harry Van Gorkun) and Darryl Simmons (James Russo) and destroys the whole project and facilities. A few years later, he is working with his friends Sam Dalton (Bruce McGill) and Rodney Bedecker (Wil Wheaton, from Star Trek), when he detects an abnormal movement of the tectonic plates, provoked by Alan's new enterprise. Brian meets Alan, and together with Allison Saunders (Terry Farrel), a highly graduated scientist from MIT, try to stop the movement of underground layers of Earth. This flick is awful: very predictable and full of clichés. The characters are badly developed, the story is horrible and it does not work. The best part is the ironical dialog of a married couple, asking for information in a road bar. The Brazilian distributors called it `Catastrophe', maybe a hint regarding the terrible quality of this film. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): `Catástrofe' (`Catastrophe')
