bad premise
21 June 2020 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

As a child, Meng Li and her father barely survive a volcano eruption but her mother is not so lucky. Despite that, she grows up to continue her mother's work as a young woman researching volcano and even working under reckless entrepreneur Jack Harris (Jason Isaacs) who has built a resort on a volcanic island.

This is a stupid premise. You're telling me that he built a resort on the side of a smoking volcano. Worst than that, you're telling me that people are willing to pay to stay there. Sometimes, people want to do a day trip to get a selfie in the crater but they're not having a restful night's sleep on top of a volcano. For this premise to work, the volcano needs to present itself as dormant but secretly active. Meng Li needs to be the outsider trying to warn the establishment of the danger. The premise is all wrong. I do like the possibilities within the father-daughter relationship. As for the CGI action, some of it looks relative good but some it looks fake. I can't give this a passing grade.
