Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Big Dumb America
26 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

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.
