worse than usual scifi channel fare
10 October 2009 | by themick99See all my reviews

megafaults! two hours i will never get back, on the upside, i cleaned the toilette. three otherwise very creditable actors failed to lift this out of the bowl. wrong uniforms, fema director? wrong vehicles, wrong terrain, when did west virginia start looking so much like montana, or was there only one mining location to film the opening and closing sequences? earthquake on the move? coming to a gas main near you. cars shake and alarms go off but no person react to the shaking. more holes in this plot than the premise left in the crust. a giant crack in the crust visible from orbit. would that it had swallowed all the copies of this stinker. should have hit the starbucks where this was pitched first. gad.
