Storyline

Melanie Fraser has a problem. Her mother, Dr. Janet Fraser, thinks that she can bond with her stepfather by accompanying mom and dad on a simple business excursion to see if a small tour guide company is a good investment for clients. The fact that the trip will take the threesome to the site of a volcano in New Zealand is nothing for Melanie to worry about. Old "Mount Extreme" is inactive and mom is a former volcanologist who should know a safe hill when she sees one. So what's the problem? Answer: somebody forgot to tell the gods in charge of lava control that they were about to host a family therapy session. Mount Extreme decides to live up to its name just in time to make Melanie's quality time with the folks seem like a big mistake. Written by Anonymous

extremely poor film
21 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

i have just watched this movie on television, and i have to admit that i think i have just wasted two hours of my life.

half way through the movie i thought to myself "where is this going"? the storyline was very weak and unrealistic.

the main characters kept going on about "evacuating a village" - well i cannot recall seeing this village they spoke of at all through the movie, and if i did it was obviously not interesting enough to remember. one cannot feel empathy for the village if one has no emotional attachment to it - and i certainly didn't.

the story mainly focuses on two teenagers getting caught in a cave and trying to escape. why on earth they went into a cave in the first place instead of running away from an erupting volcano like most normal people would is beyond me! one of the teens is a girl, who's only purpose in the movie seems to be to scream and cry annoyingly at the first sight of danger! towards the end of the movie i began to hate her character.

another character breathes through an inhaler every 5 minutes, making one think that he is dependent on it, however during the eruption he loses his inhaler, but still carriers on breathing fine without it. i think this element of the story was pointless.

there is also a spirit woman that pops up onto the screen ever so often, this is completely unrealistic and stupid. any elements of truth that the story has is demolished by this character! seriously, during a volcanic eruption what person would seek out a primitive elderly woman for help? apparently the characters in this film!

also, the end of the movie is a joke. i was screaming at the television screen in fury when i saw it! if you don't want to be informed of the ending then i suggest that you stop reading this NOW! anyway, somehow a helicopter outruns a volcanic eruption on little fuel and safely lands. the characters then get out and dance around hugging each other in happiness. in reality, the eruption would probably extend to areas 100s of miles away from the volcano itself, so why they think they are safe after flying a relatively short distance i don't know! the characters even evacuated a village 15 miles away, so why they think they are safe i don't know! at the start of the movie one of the characters even states that the mount saint Helen's eruption had effects on the land 150 miles away! so why they think they have escaped this eruption when they are still so close to the volcano (i estimate 1 - 2 miles) astounds me!

unless you have nothing better to do (and i mean NOTHING!) then this film is definitely for you!
