It just didn't have the budget or the resources to make a good disaster movie
I remember watching this in theaters because it was a really hyped movie and the theater was jam packed. Unfortunately the movie really didn't live up to it's hype, the characters were just obnoxious and the story just wasn't all that great. I think the biggest hype was because it's a disaster movie that isn't made by Hollywood, but besides that this movie was actually very dull from beginning to end. The movie lacked the budget so the CGI was pretty terrible, especially the scene when the mountain crumbles. And the disaster parts are used very sparingly as possible to the point it all becomes predictable and stupid. I really wanted to like this movie, but it's very difficult because the characters aren't really likable and you don't really get attached to them or anything, plus some of them make the most stupid decisions. I thought Sol Kyung-Gu was a good actor and for the most part he is, but I found him annoying in this movie as well. It seemed like this movie lacked the budget and resources to make a good or at least decent disaster movie. On a positive note few of the humor in this was alright.
