In the beautiful underwater reefs off the coast of Florida's pastoral Pajaro Island, a fissure rips open in the ocean floor. When graduate student Greg Chambers encounters the seismic readings, he rushes to tell his professor, Anthony McAlister. Greg suspects that a massive earthquake is about to give the small island a rude awakening. To make matters worse, the epicenter is right under Pajaro Island's new resort, where Anthony's estranged wife Lynn is working. As they drive to warn Lynn, the quake tears through the small town, damaging downtown and leveling several homes. The bridge connecting the island to the mainland is wiped out. Lynn and three others are trapped underground in the resort's utility tunnels. When Greg is killed during a rescue attempt, Lynn is forced to rally the survivors to try and save themselves.

Not your usual disaster flick
16 August 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

FAULTLINE isn't your usual made-for-TV disaster movie: no, it's even cheaper than that! Most of the budget was spent on filming on location on some islands off the coast of Florida, so instead of the usual city-wide shenanigans, much of the film focuses on a group of survivors trapped in the ruins of a building. Whether they make it or not supplies the majority of the supposed drama, as the writers attempt to elicit suspense out of the scenario.

It's not particularly good but not the absolute nadir the genre has to offer either. At least the pacing is decent, with lots of incident and conflict to keep the cauldron bubbling away. DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star Doug Savant takes the heroic role, playing the husband above around who runs around and tries to figure out the best way to save those trapped below. I've always liked Savant, finding him quite charming, but the talents of the other cast members are less impressive.

The disaster scenes are a particular disappointment, failing to impress throughout. A few extras have some rubble fall on them but otherwise the earthquake is depicted with lots of camera shake, like on an old episode of VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA. Still, this genre is notorious for the appalling films it churns out, so I wasn't too disappointed with the whole thing.
