How awful
19 February 2006 | by andygaschlerSee all my reviews

After having watched the first hour of this "completely underdeveloped script turned into a movie"-experience I can warn anyone against waisting time for such a cliché-ridden trip. Well, how do you set up your average "if mother nature unleashes her forces of destruction-epic? - You take a tragic love story; - the dog (or any other animal) that gets terribly nervous in face of the upcoming mayhem and ... - The persons that fail to realize and act upon the danger.

Some humour added, and you would have the perfect PERFECT STORM / Armageddon / DANTES PEAK / VOLCANO - spoof...

Avoid it whenever you can!
