Dante's Peak goes global with classic B-Movie results (spoilers), 25 January 2006
Author: GalitMirav from United States

Basically, we have a cataclysmic scenario involving volcanic devastation. In Dante's Peak, we had 1 volcano destroying 1 town. In Magma, we have numerous volcanos worldwide on the verge of erupting and destroying all life on Earth.

The Earth's core has expanded because of increased heating from increased radiation levels from human activities. The magma in the core needs somewhere to go and therefore every volcano on Earth erupts or will be erupting at some point in the near future. To solve the problem, the lead scientist and his associates come up with a plan in which nukes are to be detonated at several locations on the Pacific and Atlantic ocean floors (via US and international submarines) to create vents for the lava to escape without harming life on land.

We have our classic natural disaster character archetypes: The scientist that discovers the impending disaster(Xander Berkeley), the government scientist in power not believing him even in the face of compelling evidence, the college students working with the lead scientist (primarily Amy Jo Johnson), among other characters.

The movie is kinda slow at some points with a subplot involving the scientist's troubled marriage which I'm undecided if it was necessary for the film, much less properly handled. In addition, soon after the movie reached its climax it ended too quickly. But the actors at least did very well.

Bottom line: As a disaster movie, it's well made enough, although Dante's Peak flowed better (please excuse the pun) and had much better special effects. To sum up this movie in one sentence, I would say it's a combination of Dante's Peak, The Core, 10.5, and The Day After Tomorrow all in one as a B-Movie. But at its core (once again, please excuse the pun) its a disaster movie. And like I said, it's well made enough.
