Storyline

For 5 billion years the Earth's core has operated like a giant, nuclear reactor. Now it's overheated, melting down like a bomb that's about to explode. The earth is being ripped apart at the seams and beneath LA, pressure is building. After a mass evacuation, Calvin Crawford is one of few left, desperately searching for his fiancée, Ashley Pace, who unbeknownst to him, has been kidnapped and is being held hostage. With LA becoming more unstable by the minute, Calvin, must find a way to save Ashley and get them both to safety before the city is completely annihilated.

A disaster of a movie, one to be watched at your own risk
11 August 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

LA Apocalypse is not quite down there with SyFy's all-time worst, but that doesn't stop it from being a disaster in every way.

Apart from some nice scenery, the movie is not particularly well-made visually, it has a very drab look, the action and disaster scenes are shot chaotically and the best the special effects get is substandard, which is indication of how cheap, out-of-proportion (very anaemic and non-threatening) and sometimes unfinished-looking they are. The music is like a loud monotonous drone with little sense of atmosphere.

There's nothing remotely believable in the dialogue either, it's basically 80 minutes or so of mind-numbing cheese, improbable sci-fi (that constantly sounded as if made up on the spot) and tedious dramatic padding that leads nowhere and adds little. The story is basically a dull rehash of previous sci-fi disaster movies, except with even more cheese and even less suspense or fun. The lack of originality, believability or even anything just made LA Apocalypse a tiring watch and is topped by a muddled and predictable kidnap-and-rescue plot. The disaster scenes on top of looking cheap are so silly and indifferent (falling objects being the worst it gets) that it comes at the expense of any fun or tension.

Every single character is little more than personality-less stereotypes, the movie is flatly directed and the acting is very bad at best across the board. David Cade is stiff, Gina Holden's acting lacks emotion and the villains are over-the-top to the point of being insipid. Even Christopher Judge is lacklustre.

Overall, a disaster movie that manages to be a disaster of a movie as well. Watch at own risk. 1/10 Bethany Cox
