Trivia

There is a reference made to "the Makati Incident," near Mount Pinatubo during the summer of 1971, where supposedly the entire village of Mikati, Philippines were killed by a release of poisonous gas. In actuality, Makati City is 60 air-miles southeast of the volcano, just on the other side of Manila. The incident is fictitious. See more »

Another B-movie stinker from Jim Wynorski
29 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

FIRE FROM BELOW is a rubbishy disaster movie with a rubbishy story and some very bad script writing. Unsurprisingly, it was directed by Jim Wynorski, a man not known for the quality of his productions, although Andrew Stevens (the actor from '70s fare such as THE FURY) also plays a big part as producer and co-director and has a cameo as a TV journalist to boot.

The film sees a band of miners accidentally hitting a vein of liquid fire which has the ability to react with the air and cause some truly explosive disasters. Cue various scientists as they end up racing around the country and trying to figure out a way to stop the disaster from escalating. Inevitably there's a ruthless businessman trying to cover it all up. There are a couple of good CGI scenes here of the fire snaking through the air before attacking its victims, with the speedboat chase being my favourite moment, but for the most part this is a bore.

Inevitably some extraneous characters find themselves trapped underground and have to be rescued. Kevin Sorbo shows up as the hero and looks tired and stressed in equal measure. Maeghan Albach plays his girlfriend but the two stars share zero chemistry and she's a rubbish actress to boot. Alex Meneses, who is brought in for glamour value, is much better and should have had a more prominent role. B-movie actor Alex Cord shows up as a military character. That is all.
