Well formulated disaster movie
29 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a disaster movie depicting massive tsunami to hit the coast of Thailand due to an earthquake.

Instability in the earth's plate caused by 2004 boxer day tsunami, and pressures in tectonic plate is causing underwater volcanoes to become active after 17 years. Series of ruptures in ocean floor is being reported, and scientists headed by Dr. Siam is getting alarmed. But after series of false alarms, their credibility for predictions is getting low.

The story is bit slow in the beginning, but for a modest budget movie, it attempts to create destruction in massive scale using CG like seen on "The Day After". The story is credible as a disaster movie, and the casts does a good job of depicting people in different positions of the government.

Not a bad movie that has many highlights that gives you the feeling of a Hollywood movie. with local flavor of beautiful Thailand.
