Storyline

When the dam in the town of Rutland starts to show signs of wear. David Powell, the architect who originally worked on the dam but was removed and who left town after he was black balled by Walker, the man who only cares about making a profit; returns. He insists that the dam be drained and inspected but Walker claims it would take too long and would be too costly. David goes to the dam and notices a few anomalies. He then tries to warn the deputy mayor who happens to be his estranged wife but out of anger she refuses to listen. Also David tries to reconnect with his son who resents his desertion.

Decent effort
7 February 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I might be easy to please but I found this to be an okay film. Being a fan of the 'Disaster film' I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the special effects. However let us be honest the plot as with most disaster movies is thus. One person sees the disaster coming and the rest do not. His/her personal life is a mess but the disaster does bring the family closer together. I know their are some of you that are reaching for the sick bag, but hey that is the formula for disaster movies so get used to it. At least in this movie we did not have the cute children caught up in the disaster. I am probably a romantic so if the right guy gets the girl and the bad guy gets his just desserts then I am happy and that was I got with this film. The important question? Is this film good enough for my DVD collection ( that is assuming it was available)? yes but only at a real bargain price.
