Goofs

(at around 2 mins) When Natalie in her Subaru Forester goes off the cliff she still has her seatbelt on. When the car flips one more time, she no longer has any seatbelt on and is holding on to where the windshield was broken out - so that when the car abruptly stops, she is flung into the back cargo area instead of remaining in her seat.

San Andreas.
19 January 2016 | by freshclean-66-318608See all my reviews

Going into this film I knew it wasn't going to be one of the best films I've ever seen I just knew I would like the visual effects and the action, although there were some parts that wouldn't have happened in real life but that's standard Hollywood, it's expected. The story line and plot wasn't anything spectacular. It wasn't anything you haven't seen before, very clichéd and predictable. The Rock's performance in this film did give it that extra kick that was needed to make this film a bit more tolerable. If you're planning on seeing this film enjoy the ride for the visual effects and the action, don't expect very much more. I'm not going to say it's bad and I'm not going to say it's good. It's just a clichéd Hollywood work of art. You be the judge.
