(at around 1h 30 mins) At the end of the scene where the Golden Gate Bridge is destroyed, it shows one of the towers leaning toward the center of the bridge with the cables anchoring it to the land still in tact. Without the weight of the center section of the bridge, the weight of the cables and bridge deck would pull the tower back toward the land, not out toward the water. See more »
Jon Amiel is a well known and respected director known for his work with actors, so it may come as a bit of a surprise that he wanted to tackle a project like this. And he does say in the 'featurettes' that he wanted this to be a character driven narrative. And if you check the deleted scenes you'll see there was in fact enough material to make it so.
But something happened in the cutting room. The scenes that added depth to the characters were cut, leaving only the vestiges of a run of the mill catastrophe science fiction movie.
And it's wonderful the special effects people are proud of the work they've done but as viewers we're not interested so much in that as we want to have something pleasurable to watch.
And that's where this turkey fails.
