Storyline

When miner Charley 'Boomer' Baxter sets off a series of massive mining detonations in West Virginia, a gigantic earthquake is soon rocking the North Atlantic, exposing a deep seismic fault that runs the length of the North American continent. Joining forces with government seismology expert Dr Amy Lane, Boomer must now race against time to stop the chasm that is threatening to tear America - and the entire world - in half.

Horrible misleading film doesn't know what earthquakes are
10 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There should be a negative score for film this bad. The writers have no idea what earthquakes are. They seem to think an earthquake is like a tear in fabric and if you can stay ahead of the rip you will be OK. Nonsense. Actress is so unprepared for the role she looks at her technical equipment like she's never seen it before. All the actors stand around uncomfortable knowing they have no lines. The failure is no ability to tell the truth. The writers know nothing about the underlying science of seismology and lied that they could write a story on the topic. No one on the project could tell the truth that the script was awful. The producers lied that they had a viable film. The nitwits at Syfy lie that they are able to develop or produce science fiction. At least they changed the spelling to spare the science fiction genre from guilt by association.

Work this poor is an affront to drama, to science, and to the audience.

Best line in the film: Because I'm holding a bottle of water, I'm more prepared for the next earthquake than most people. (sic) True.

Dumbest line in the first 30 minutes: (looking at a hole in the ground) "That was a 7 on the Richter scale." Total nonsense.

I turned it off.
