Did You Know?


If the earthquakes were above a 6.1 then AT&T stadium would have much more damage than shown in the movie. See more »


The rescue boat near the end is a Zodiac type vessel with an inflated stiff rubber body and a rigid fibreglass lower hull. When the one person could not break the heavy glass with a section of heavy metal piping, it is IMPOSSIBLE for a soft sided 'nerf boat' to shatter that same glass. It would have bounced off like a tennis ball. See more »

Crazy Credits

The end credits scroll with a bend at the top and bottom of the screen, as though they are on a rotating seismograph drum. Seismic lines, increasing in intensity, can be seen on the left side of the frame. See more »

What did everyone expect? It's a disaster movie!
11 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I read some of the reviews here and am wondering what all the negative reviewers expected. Who didn't know this was a huge, costly disaster movie? Who didn't know there were going to be many unbelievable scenes? Who didn't know there would be some cheesy dialogue?

Well, I, for one, enjoyed it. The last good disaster movie I saw was The Towering Inferno, and you know that was a long, long time ago. It's still my favorite disaster flick. San Andreas, of course, had much better special effects. (several decades later, better effects, right?) I thought the scenes of the destruction were amazing.

We all know disaster movies usually focus on a handful of people in it and this one was no different. The movie was entertaining for me. I hope it is for you, too. :)
