Storyline

The West coast of Northern America suffers an unprecedented series of major earthquakes in a matter of days, puzzling seismologists, including Dr. Jordan Fisher's team. His maverick assistant Samantha Hill comes up with a theory, which they confirm on site, that a deep tectonic rift links them and is likely to sink most of California into the Pacific. The only imaginable countermeasure are subterranean nuclear explosions. Three succeed, one rather causes a new problem. Meanwhile federal and other authorities as well as various people wrestle with side-effects like landslides and cope with a huge refugees exodus. Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

The filmmakers never received permission to use the trademarked name "Space Needle." In order to circumvent this, it is spelled "Spaceneedle" when it appears in the film. See more »

Goofs

A 10.5 earthquake as represented in the movie, would actually be much larger than depicted. People would not be able to walk around so freely as they are doing (at a 10.5, the levels of sight and sound would be distorted). Damage would also be total, damaging much more than shown (the destruction would also reach areas as far away as Michigan or possibly even New York). See more »

Execrable.. bad.. dumb.. etc.
5 May 2004 | by See all my reviews

Taped it, since I had my doubts beforehand. Good thing too. Just zapping the ads out knocked about 45 minutes off the 4 hour run time. Fast forwarding through some of the drek knocked another hour off.

The science was retarded. If their stupid little idea of nukes would have had half a chance of doing what they said it was doing, it would have required hundreds of them, not 6, and they would have had to been thousands of feet under ground, not hundreds. I don't know why I should be bothered about that as it makes as much sense as arguing the "science" in Star Trek.

Phones that still worked when convenient to the "plot".

It had every cliche known to man and monkey. "Marshal Law" (Is that Jude Law's brother?)

I gave it a 2 instead of a 1 because the little bit of footage they had of things falling down was done pretty well.
