this is a DISASTER movie.., 21 September 2013
Author: wdharvey11 from USA

Some of the reviews here were expecting a horror movie, yet this is an updated version of the old disaster movies of the '70's, i.e. "Earthquake", "Towering Inferno", and "Poseidon Adventure". Personally, I thought the movie was well done. The "Prisoners" were stereotypically rapists and such...I don't know what prisoners are like in Chile...

Regardless, I'd recommend this movie if you like a disaster movie. Pretty good special effects, bad acting at times...but, what movie doesn't have all that, anyway?

Give it a shot...there's some gore, there's some cursing, there's a lot of violence. Not a total waste of time...excellent for a Saturday afternoon...
