Storyline

Millwood City engineer Scott Daniels, moved from Houston, investigates a series of mysterious fires. Scott's and Lourie Harper's only son Jesse, who hated the move or dad's youth home, fakes a fever and invites his new girlfriend Carmen. She's reporter Allison Saunders, Scott's high-school ex's, daughter and finds Jesse unconscious, overtaken by fumes. The sewers are full of dead rats. Cracks appear in various buildings. Gass leaks start explosive fires. Mayor Walker, who only care for politics and publicity, overrules Scott's call for a mass evacuation. Scott and city administration friend Kenny Barrows later discover the link is steam pressure drilling by Talbot's oil exploration firm, but fire chief Patterson is in league with Talbot for years, covers their tracks and undermines Scott's credibility.

Light, but Entertaining...

'Combustion' (2004) TV/DVD is an entertaining production likened to the serious ('Sharknado', this is not) 'Disaster' genre movies of yesteryear. 'Combustion' contains some of the action, thrills, & suspense you would expect from a TV production. Acting & script are the highlights here, while overall production could have produced a real winner under more capable direction. There are better Disaster genre movies available, but there are also worse. This film is recommended more for die-hard fans of the Disaster genre, more so than the curious Disaster genre viewer. For similar themes consider: 'The Core' (2003); 'Descent' (2005); 'Magma: Volcanic Disaster' (2006); 'Aftershock: Earthquake in New York' (1999); '10.5' (2006); 'Earthquake: Nature Unleashed' (2004); 'Buried Alive' (2004); '10.5 Apocalypse' (2006); & 'Daylight' (1996). Also consider: 'Earthquake' (1974); 'The Towering Inferno' (1974); 'The Day After Tomorrow' (2004); 'Absolute Zero' (2005); 'Tidal Wave' (1973/1975); 'Meteor' (1979); 'Twister' (1996); 'Volcano' (1997); 'Category 6: Day of Destruction' (2004); 'Dante's Peak' (1997); 'The Swarm' (1978); & 'Outbreak' (1995).
