"What If" in Albuquerque
4 August 2013 | by bhfrdSee all my reviews

Seriously silly, and so totally bad it's actually interesting, but maybe only to anyone who is familiar with Albuquerque, and has always wondered "what if" tornadoes, tsunami and other physically impossible weather villains were to afflict the city.

The special effects, such as the afore-mentioned storms personally following the family around in their car and then bearing down on some factory complex, combined with forest fires from above and at ground level were juvenile, and if you've ever wondered what it was like to wade across the Rio Grande past a floating corpse, then this movie is for you.

The chemistry between the pa, ma and junior is odd to say the least, and while at times their faces convey suitable chagrin at the sudden rain all over the Duke City, one does have to wonder how they can seem to drive all over, one scene being in the foothills, the next down by the river, and then suddenly they appear apparently up in the Sandia Mountains! I thought junior might have had the hots for his mom... strange dialog, and resentment towards dad.

Everyone they meet, which thankfully are few, are well-matched in terms of direction and acting abilities, although none of them ask "red or green"?

The wreckage they pass going up to the Tram area and elsewhere resemble newly-stripped autos more than anything from any accident, and the stray Pit Bull in one I think should have been a Prairie Dog.

Might be the only movie to start at the Albuquerque International Balloon Festival. Stick with "Breaking Bad", and "Lonely Are the Brave".
