(At around twenty minutes) When Paul (Charles Hallahan), Greg (Grant Heslov), Terry (Kirk Trutner), Stan (Tzi Ma), and Nancy (Arabella Field) arrive in Dante's Peak, Stan comments that the residents of the town must feel cozy by the mountain, and Nancy remarks "Yeah! Just like Pompeii." A nod to the historic volcanic disaster of the Roman city of Pompeii, near Naples in the Italian region of Campania, in the territory of commune of Pompei, on August 24, 79 A.D. When the entire city was wiped out, when the nearby volcano, Mount Vesuvius, erupted, and sixteen thousand people were killed. See more »
The red van that Paul is driving onto the bridge when they are evacuating the town has no vent windows, yet when Paul is stuck on the bridge, and it begins to overturn, the same van that he was driving can be seen to have vent windows. See more »
Isn't this beautiful, nestled all nice and cozy right up against the mountain?
Yeah, just like Pompeii.

I love the way this film builds up tension by slowly developing the characters and inducing drama between them. All of this makes a film much better than VOLCANO. The list of fine actors/ actresses include Pierce Brosnan, Linda Hamilton, Charles Hallahan, Grant Heslov, Elizabeth Hoffman, Tzi Ma, Christopher Murray and more. This film shows how people might actually act and think in a volcano situation. The art direction was great as they showed the sky and ash beautifully. The scenery of the town is very nice and the whole town seems very quiet and peaceful. I would have wanted to live there.
This is the best volcano movie ever. No volcano movie will ever surpass this one. The cinematography is great also. Roger Donaldson did a great job of direction and the score by James Newton Howard is beautiful. All of these elements create a film that is unforgettable. DANTE'S PEAK gets 5/5.
