A terrible low budget disaster movie. Plain and simple.
I know The Asylum isn't known for "quality entertainment", but campy entertainment can be their strength at times. This disaster movie is neither campy or entertaining. This has to be one of the most poorly directed and acted movies I've seen in a long time.
Bad: Let's break it down. The acting is terrible. Nicholas Turturro clearly doesn't care to be there so he just sleepwalks through it all. Ming-Na kind of gives some effort, but she also doesn't care. The rest of the acting from the cast is either wooden or too over the top. The effects are horrible with the disaster scenes clearly taking place during the day with some rain or fire superimposed on it. It's like they didn't bother trying to make the scenes look like they take place in a storm. No huge waves, no strong winds, or even just a constant stream of rain. The logic and continuity gaps are enormous that they clearly didn't care to fix them up in post-production.
Overall, it's a terrible movie that is a big showcase of people who just don't care about making something even barely decent.
