Wonderfully Awful
29 December 2010 | by Bob_the_HoboSee all my reviews

Man oh man, "Megafault" is your typical movie released by The Asylum. You have the failed actors (Brittany Murphy and Bruce Davison) and the guys who never made it (Eriq La Salle and Justin Hartley) all in a wonderful, horrible action drama with the usual touches of bad script, bad effects, and stone acting, ultimately leading to a fulfilling end.

Murphy is some scientist (there's your first problem) that deals with seismology. Ironically an earthquake erupts during a conference led by some other scientist (Davison). The earthquake/megafault seems to have been started by La Salle's character, it's never exactly explained. Hartley plays Murphy's husband. The film tracks their reactions to the megafault.

I didn't expect anything at all and I wasn't surprised at the end result of a brainless hour and a half. For example we look to the clichéd and hilarious thing where the hero is followed by the crack in the earth, Hartley's character surviving a plane crash that seemed to take both pilot's lives yet he emerges with a crooked tie and a hair out of place, and finally the BS description about all the scientific stuff. Cheesy but fun.

Murphy is alright, but I wasn't expecting much. It's a heckuva film to end your career on, that's for sure. She'll be missed. La Salle is probably the best one here. He doesn't take this ridiculous plot seriously either. Hartley is pretty good too. Davison is more of an extended cameo but he's always fun to watch.

Gist of the movie is brainlessness. It's one of The Asylum's better movies but still has enough ridicule so you can chuckle to yourself the whole way through.
