Alternate Versions

Originally broadcast on CBS in 1999, one shot is removed from the video version that was on television. On CBS, after Danny opens the door and finds that the rest of the school has been demolished. We see a close up shot of him and then he closes the door and weakly slumps to the floor. In the video version after he opens the door, we see his face close up and then it cuts to the next scene. The reason for this is because the movie aired in two parts on television and when he slumps down the screen reads "TO BE CONTINUED" See more »

A good movie...for distaster-flick fans:)
4 August 2000 | by miro-14See all my reviews

OK. The genre "disaster film" genrally doesn't mean earth-shattering, brilliant writing. What these movies are all about is the ACTION-something that, i'm pleased to see, the other commenters on this page realize. This movie, i think, has some better writing than others. It sidesteps cliched characters to a certain extent...for example, the mayor is sympathetic and really NOT a mad power-monger. It was refreshing for me to see a person in a position of power in an action movie attempt not to abuse such power for his/her own interests. All the other characters are also appealing...except one. As for the direction, Mikael Salomon truly knows how to stage action...it's all about camera angles. In this film, he uses these to great effect...my personal favorite being the one he uses when 2 characters escape out from under a truck collapsing underground in the nick of time. all-in-all, this is an entertaining movie...and a worthy entry into the disaster-film genre. in fact, i like this better than VOLCANO, a theatrical release from a few years back. i give this movie 3 out of 4 stars.
