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
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 »
On the opening shot of City Hall in San Francisco, it is a spiraling aerial shot with all of the automobiles going in a forward motion. When the scene in "City Hall" is over and the spiraling aerial view is run again, it is the SAME aerial view of city hall run in reverse (as can be proven with the fact that all the cars passing long the street are running backwards in the reverse motion).

Why does the director of this film zoom in and zoom out every two seconds? It's bad enough that the script is just awful, I mean, straight-to-video awful and the acting is just as bad. I mean, embarrassingly bad. The actors had to have been cringing watching themselves in this film. But the director zooms in and zooms out constantly through the movie, I was getting motion sickness. Oddly, the film had great ratings so this guy will get more work, I just hope I never see any of it. I don't want to get sick again.
Cliched characters abound in this movie, it's a wonder no one in the production noticed this. My least favorite part of the whole film was the very beginning, where Seattle is having a huge quake and some biker is riding over falling rocks, jumping on cars, just being missed by all the falling debris. It was so stupid. Apparently, some executive said "you know, we've got to attract the young kids. Why not have some extreme biker in there riding through the quake. It would be cool."
I really wanted the Space Needle to fall on him. The zoom in, zoom out, zoom in again, zoom out again.
