I’m a disaster movie junkie, so it was only a matter of time before we saw this one.
The special effects were outrageous and over the top. In other words, perfect. Each of the major disaster scenes were incredible, lengthy, and exciting. Watching California fall into the ocean was a true stunner, and the scene was enjoyable enough that we watched it twice.
The crazy guy (Charlie Frost) is precious. By far my favorite character.
And that ends the good….
The language was terrible. It seemed that every other word was a swear word of some kind.
The plot line was predictable and lame. Truly.
The feel good moments felt more like heart burn.
There was no engagement with the characters beyond just watching them survive.
I’ve never liked Jon Cusack (sorry).
Well, I think that sets a record for my shortest review ever. That’s about how meatless this film was, too.
I’ll give it a single star based only on the special effects. I would have given it two, but the language really is terrible. If you’re a disaster junkie, you’ll probably get a kick out of the disasters (as I did).
1 out of 4 stars.
