Trivia

Dwayne Johnson was in Budapest shooting Hercules (2014), another movie produced by Flynn, when he was handed the script. He stayed up until 3:30 in the morning to read the script all the way through. "I loved it. I texted Beau and said, 'I'm in.' It all came together fairly quickly in terms of the amazing actors who had their hands up who wanted to come in and play in the sandbox and hopefully redefine a genre that has been around for such a long period of time. Collectively, the group here wanted to create something special because it'd been a long time since there'd been an earthquake movie." 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 »

San Andreas.
19 January 2016 | by (Baton Rouge, La) – See all my reviews

Going into this film I knew it wasn't going to be one of the best films I've ever seen I just knew I would like the visual effects and the action, although there were some parts that wouldn't have happened in real life but that's standard Hollywood, it's expected. The story line and plot wasn't anything spectacular. It wasn't anything you haven't seen before, very clichéd and predictable. The Rock's performance in this film did give it that extra kick that was needed to make this film a bit more tolerable. If you're planning on seeing this film enjoy the ride for the visual effects and the action, don't expect very much more. I'm not going to say it's bad and I'm not going to say it's good. It's just a clichéd Hollywood work of art. You be the judge.
