Pollo, a spoiled, selfish party-loving womanizer, and Ariel, who is still obsessed with his ex-girlfriend, are taking their friend, who we know only as Gringo, around to experience Chile. Gringo, played by Eli Roth, is a responsible, newly single American father trying his best to fit in as Ariel and Pollo guide him around underground nightclubs in search for women. After meeting three woman who seem perfectly matched for these three men, a massive earthquake hits. The party stops and a battle for survival begins.
The first 30 minutes consist of watching the three main actors drink heavily while making their way around Chile. This is another one of those films wherein the actors seem to be having so much fun on-screen, it is as if they forget there is an audience who have paid to be entertained by the film they have found themselves in. The film itself has the production value of a movie made for a cable television network and while there is comedy, the humor is at the level of a bad sitcom. When the earthquake finally does happen the story tries to be as shocking as possible making it unclear whether or not the director was intentionally trying to add a level of comedy to the horror. Either way, Aftershock fails.
