Storyline

At the outskirts of New Orleans a sewage tunnel caves in; city officials are less concerned about the worker who was killed then about possible repercussions on the impending Mardi Gras in the French Quarter, which is the tourist hight point of the year in Louisiana, so the priority is to prevent a panic. Still Allison Beauchamp, under whose responsibility public works fall in city hall, calls on her intimate friend, geologist Matt Andrews, who is extremely cautious since an accident only he blames himself for, to investigate. Shortly after another cave in, he finds and reports -even arranging radar material was opposed by the Mardi Gras lobby- that such sink holes are caused by the lingering on of a fire in underground tunnels trough peat layers, so there's no way of telling where and when more sink-holes will collapse, but it may happen all over the city, and two million tourists joining in the reveling increase the risk, so everyone is in danger.

Bungling and inept
5 June 2002 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Utterly formulaic TV disaster movie in which New Orleans threatens to collapse in on itself as sinkholes open up under its streets at the height of Mardi Gras celebrations Naturally the straight arrow geologist is not believed as a devious majoral aide seeks to obscure evidence in order to avoid the cancellation of the parade

Bland actors,inadequate visual effects and a script that would only be mediocre if it improved by 200%

Why do movies like this get made at all? Who could possibly like them as they are inert and lifeless in every respect
