it is a good film
26 November 2006 | by kimberleebrennanSee all my reviews

There are many great disaster films these days, most recent would have been Day After Tomorrow but this film i had to admit, is amazing. I like disaster films too, especially Twister, Volcano and said film mentioned. Although our ending is a bit soppy with our family reunited after being trapped round the city in different aspects of New York day by day life, yet they walk away from the disaster with a better outlook of life, despite the fact the earthquake is still in great effect, everywhere being covered in glass, buildings and such. but other than that, a very thought out film, I'm gutted myself it is not out on DVD or on TV again, the good films always get the short end of the stick.
