In San Andreas, California is experiencing a statewide earthquake that goes on record as easily the biggest earthquake in history. Dwayne Johnson plays Ray Gaines, a helicopter rescue pilot for the Los Angeles Fire Department, who is trying to find his daughter, Blake (Alexandra Daddario), who is in San Francisco amidst the chaos. Ray's estranged wife, Emma, is forced to turn to Ray for help, as he is her last resort. Together they journey to save their daughter. Written by
An earthquake on the west coast of California at 9.6 wouldn't cause a tsunami on the same coast. If it caused a tsunami at all it would be across the Pacific. See more »
When Ray and Emma are flying to San Francisco in the helicopter, Blake calls them. When Ray answers he is the only one that can hear and talk to her, then he turns the switch so only Emma can hear and talk to her. (This is proven by Ray not knowing what Blake told Emma about Daniel, until Emma says it out loud back to Blake). But just a short moment later they both can hear and talk to Emma without Ray turning any switches. INCORRECT: When Ray answers, yes he is the only one who can hear and talk to her. He turns the switch and allows Emma to join the conversation but he can quite clearly hear what's going on - he actually turns and looks at Emma with an expression that suggests he knows exactly what was said, Emma repeated the words in surprise/shock. There was no need to turn the switch again - they could already both hear/communicate with Blake. See more »
OK, who wants an "A" in independent study? I'm starting a new class: "how to save lives by hacking media outlets".

The end credits scroll with a bend at the top and bottom of the screen, as though they are on a rotating seismograph drum. Seismic lines, increasing in intensity, can be seen on the left side of the frame. See more »
Hilariously dumb and manipulative, it's entertaining on that level alone, although scary in that it's so boarder line that you can't be sure the movie was made with tongue anywhere near cheek, I'm inclined to think not. That this movie is serious, that America needs to feel like a scared kitten rescued by a big stack of muscles. That stack of muscles is Dwayne Johnson and it's hard not to love him. He's kinda good in this, I like him, even when he's part of this manipulative propaganda. The special effects were nice. it kinda flowed, sort of, I guess, lots of plot holes but why bother looking for them when the iq level they're aiming this at is so low you're not supposed to notice. The cheesy flag at the end gives you another good piece of cheese to choke on. If we're going to go down we might as well go down stupid.
