Director Brad Peyton and Dwayne "The Rock" Johonson pair up again in the earthquake disaster flick 'San Andreas,' named after the fault line that runs across California.
This is not as bad as I was expecting. I've never been a huge fan of the disaster movie genre, with such films as 'Day After Tomorrow' (2004) and '2012' (2009) usually falling flat in terms of scientific reality vs. Hollywood sensationalism. It's not very well acted per se, but you don't watch something like this for the characterization the actors try and portray in their roles. The plot is VERY basic... earthquakes happen, disaster ensues. No twists or turns in the road but it's not boring by any means. Does the gigantic Tsunami in the San Fransisco bay area make sense? No not at all, but it is entertaining for a disaster flick (most Tsunami's are only .5 meters to 2 meters in height in the open ocean, it is their speed, not their height that makes them so large as they approach the shore).
I wouldn't go so far as to give this film much acclaim, but if you are the type of person who enjoys watching buildings collapse, explosions going off, and people dying in generally horrible ways, then this will be your type of film.
