I am really into volcano, natural mass destruction films. I am usually very wary of direct to TV films, as they usually contain bad effects, sub par acting... But in this case this 3 hour movie had a good enough acting, and above all really good effects (keeping in mind that this is a direct to TV film). The nuclear like explosion looks great as the town destruction scenes do. Obviously the events aren't realistic...but you can't expect realism from a natural disaster movie.... All in all, I find this movie has all it needs to be an entertaining experience, where cinematography, effects and acting are good enough keeping in mind that this is longer than many Hollywood features and I am sure the budget was lower. Natural disaster movie buffs won't be disappointed (although you will bite your tongue in some scenes, trying not to yell at the actors... asking them to cover their mouth not to shallow volcanic ash...)
