Storyline

Suddenly the US east coast is hit by a type of natural disaster formerly reserved, except after a major earthquake, for the Pacific and Indian ocean rims: tidal waves of the destructive tsunami type. Scientist and fiction author John McAdams attends a national emergency conference which concludes the phenomenon must be man-made, quite possibly abusing the findings of John's secret former Sea Lion project, but who wants to and has the means? Indeed John soon finds himself set-up for a murder and chased. Major destructions mean major contracts for construction and coastal defenses, so building tycoons like Victor Bannister certainly have a considerable interest... Written by KGF Vissers

Trivia

Throughout the film, especially in the 2nd half, as the police search for the main character, John McAdams, played by Angus Macfadyen, they repeatedly show photocopies of a picture of McAdams. The picture is the same photo of Macfadyen that appears on his IMDb profile. See more »

Goofs

When lead henchman, Aslan Bukhari (Andreas Apergis) shoots the security guard in the ship yard to commandeer the explosives from a semi-truck to trigger the final tsunami, he takes the keys, inspects the trailer and sets the keys down on the floor. After toying with a stuffed animal that inexplicably is lying on the floor of the trailer, Aslan shuts and locks the door leaving the keys on the floor. See more »

Great disaster flick!!!
6 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Killer Wave opens with a huge wave coming at some kids on the beach while they scream and run. Then the film gets a boring start for 10 minutes with not one comedic line or interesting piece of material. Then it gets good. From there it kept me interested the whole way through. So a male and female scientists whose names escapes me is on the run from two nosy FBI agents, terrorists, violent she males and GIANT waves badly created with terrible CGI effects.

And this is not a kids movie no matter what it may seem. There's a part where a guy kills his wife then himself. And there's a graphic kill scene of a woman.
