An updated B-movie with little else that's innovative.
Can you say "Box Office Disaster"? As in what you've just seen in VOLCANO? I knew you would! A movie that gives us the works in special effects and a huge cast of firemen and police officers, it feeds on our appetites for a nonstop panic of disaster. All that's missing here is the plot, turning this grade-A visual feast into another ordinary B-movie. We pay the price for expensive graphics, and very little to keep us on the edge of our seats. Unlike TITANIC, this one is on maximum horsepower without showing any important aspects to the story. We see tons of people roaming around, gigantic explosions, a large pack of flying helicopters, tall buildings collapsing, close calls from death by an inch, and all the more. How about ripping off THE BLOB or other vintage sci-fi schlockers, for crying out loud? I don't see how a slow stream of crawling lava can make a movie exciting, and not even the helping hands can help prevent this masterpiece of eye candy from being another average effort. Nice try, but it just doesn't work.
