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.

Whose fault was this movie?
11 October 2009 | by (Redondo Beach, CA) – See all my reviews

SyFy channel proudly announced in its trailers, "Goodbye West Coast! So long, East Coast." That must be in Mega-Fault II; it certainly didn't happen in this film. The idea for the film was ambitious and may have seemed good on paper, but with a mega-budget of about 25 bucks, very little ever got to the screen.

Will somebody please explain to the director that earthquake faults do not chase people? Yet if a truck is in motion with a lead character in this film, look around: here comes a fissure. Also, it will somehow make phony looking explosions (probably red smoke bombs) go off next to the truck, in obviously looped footage.

I liked the actors; they try, but the script gives them nothing to work with. Most of the characters look and act ridiculous. Maybe the director told the cast "all the goofs will be fixed in post production." He lied. All they did in the post-op was add some google map pictures, and some shaky graphics. The film attempts to wrap the story around the seismologist and demolition expert's friendship. That's alright as far as it goes, but the film spends so much time developing that subplot, that it forgets all about a crisis that is possibly killing millions of people. The command center where the senior seismologist guy hangs out is a joke; all anybody does is report the fault's progress to the audience. And what the heck was with that satellite? Something about starting quakes to stop a quake? Lol. It looked like it was shooting some kind of freeze ray. I'm not sure if you can freeze an earthquake.

The brief "victims in Wyoming" scene could have been a single shining moment for the film, but they even wasted that. It's laughably silly in spite of the gruesome thing that happens. The final climactic scene is just dull and stupid, too.

After Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus and Mega Fault, what can possibly be next for SyFy? Invasion of the Mega Aliens? Night of the Mega Zombies? Mega Smurfs go to the Giant Mega-Store?
