When Blake and Daniel land at the airport in Oakland, two factual errors appear. First, "Oakland Municipal Airport" no longer exists - it is Oakland International Airport. Second, the view of the airport actually features the old control tower at San Francisco International Airport, on the other side of San Francisco Bay. See more »
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 »
It was like the best part of every action/disaster movie for 2 hours
Yes, The Rock says every single clichéd action movie line I can remember. And yes, every one is hilariously predictable.
Yes, the hot girl is wet and her cleavage is showing for most of the movie.
Yes, every shot is crammed with mind-numbing amounts of CGI. Normally that bothers me, in this movie it just works. If you see it in 3D you will be drooling.
Go see it right now, seeing this in theaters is the absolute best waste of 2 hours you will spend all year, and I am extremely confident that you will have fun.
Remember that moment in Independence Day when the aliens blew up the white house? or in the Dark Knight when batman flips the whole 18 wheeler front-ways with his motorcycle? or how about when the entire city of London was demolished in GI Joe Retaliation? the handful of cool scenes in that weird Godzilla reboot?
San Andreas is basically 2 hours of jaw-dropping destruction, epic sequences, death scenes, and interspersed one-liners. It's great. I'd watch the whole thing again right now.
See it while it's in theaters. Don't think about it, just go.
