Goofs

Just prior to the LA quake, Ray inexplicably takes the helicopter for a trip to "maintenance" and flies over rural LA county, despite needing to get to Nevada to assist there. The chief mechanic is already at Ray's home base, without any need to leave. 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. :)
