Most of the fire trucks in the movie were made by the Crown Corporation, with distinctive double-vertical headlights. Crown Corporation went out of business in 1991. See more »
Lava is exceptionally hot (1300-2200 degrees). That being said, it would have ignited the asphalt roadways that it touched as it would have not only melted them, it would have gone past the boiling point for asphalt and ignited its petroleum base. Literally, the roads would have been aflame.

To attract more viewers the German theatrical version was cut to receive a "Not under 12" rating. The German video release contains the complete version and is rated "Not under 16". See more »
BAD NEWS - Unlikeable female lead in Anne Hesch, who had too foul a mouth for me. Other irritating characters with stupid dialog. A predictable ending with the needlessly drawn out save-the-daughter scene trying for maximum suspense.
GOOD NEWS - Some awesome disaster scenes. Hollywood's special-effects just keep getting more awesome as the years go on. A fast-moving story that was just about the right length. A likable lead character played by Tommy Lee Jones.
Overall, a movie that keeps your attention but doesn't get your respect with the dumb dialog.
