The biggest disaster is the movie itself !
1 October 2005 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

CONTAINS SPOILERS! "Tsunami" is a TV-Movie produced by a commercial German TV-station, Pro7. Criticized in Germany for being shown less than a year after the tsunami-disaster in South Asia it was actually produced before the Christmas-Tsunami but not shown. Until now and what a pity. It's a disastrous disaster movie that doesn't avoid a single disaster-movie-cliché and violates several sciences (hydrodynamics, seismology, etc.) to create the completely unrealistic scenario of an explosion-triggered (guess by whom? YES by an greedy, evil corporation that ignored warnings by the scientists, how unique!) 50 m tsunami in the North Sea that is miraculously stopped by some silly, rather weak explosive devices. The film ignores nearly any known facts about tsunamis and shows us a single, huge wave that travels at perhaps 50 km/h. Tsunamis are never higher than 1-2m while still on Sea, they travel at jet-speed (900 km/h), they never come single and it's absolutely impossible to stop them with anything! Throw in cardboard-characters, REALLY bad acting (so bad it actually hurts), stupid subplots, annoying dialogue, terrible forced action-scenes stolen from e.g. "The Perfect Storm" and you get a really disastrous disaster-movie. Like real tsunamis, RUN and avoid at all cost.
