Product Description

Kim Delaney, Beau Bridges. The impossible happens when a devastating earthquake strikes the Pacific Northwest and threatens to tear the West Coast off of the continent-putting 50 million lives in jeopardy. 2004/color/165 min/NR/fullscreen.

Dismissed by seismologists and roasted by critics, 10.5 offers everything you'd expect from a cheesy camp-classic disaster flick. Originally broadcast on May 2 and 3, 2004, this $20 million NBC sweeps-week miniseries achieved its ratings goal (20 million viewers) by promising a respectable cast and spectacular digital effects to simulate "the Big One"--a series of fault-ripping earthquakes that re-shape the entire West Coast of the United States. The first quake hits Seattle, toppling the Space Needle in a ridiculous opening sequence, and within minutes deep-fault expert Kim Delaney (no doubt regretting her departure from NYPD Blue) is busy convincing the President (Beau Bridges) and his geological advisor (Fred Ward) that only a series of nuclear blasts will "heal the rift" in the shifting tectonic plates. With John Schneider and The West Wing's Dulé Hill in thankless supporting roles, 10.5 deliberately strives for supreme badness, leaving no cliché unturned and cursing its cast with the worst dialogue in miniseries history. It's gloriously awful and uproariously entertaining. 10.5 may not rock your world, but natural disasters were never this much fun. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars 10.5 March 16, 2008
Anyone liking disaster movies will enjoy this one also. There are several elements that are not geologically correct, so if that will bother you, keep that in mind. I liked the cast. Kim Delaney and Beau Bridges were the best part of the movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable Disaster FIlm February 20, 2005
By Jim Jr
Is this a great film - no, is it enjoyable - yes. The only thing this film asks is that the viewer has an enjoyable time. The producers are not trying to teach lessons about actual earthquakes - so what if a 10.5 is impossible on the Richter scale. What it indicates is that this was a horrible earthquake. So what if the survival camp was set up on a fault line. How many people actually know where fault lines are. There is supposed to be one in my general area in New York State, but none of the general public knows where it is.

Forget all the technical stuff and just sit back and enjoy the film. Laugh at the less than perfect effects and say to yourself that you could do better with your own camcorder in the back yard.

It is almost impossible to be serious about all the disaster films so simply have fun with this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars standard TV disaster drama, great special effects January 12, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember at the time that real earthquake scientists didn't know whether to laugh or cry when this one came out. I thought it did OK for a TV disaster drama with the usual divorced parents and their difficulties (except in this case Mom is governor of the state), the brilliant young scientist with the radical, but correct, theory about the quakes- and the tough boss who doesn't believe at first but comes to his senses and ultimately saves the day.

I think the idea of deep faults has now been proven (the writers did say they did their research on the internet)but that idea of fusing them with nuclear blasts doesn't work for me, especially when done at depths of only a few hundred feet. I'd think that trying to fuse something like that would only make it worse either by REALLY cutting things loose or actually fusing and letting pressures build up even more.

What sap would put an evacuee camp on a faultline as they did in this movie?, that was actually the dumbest thing in the whole thing.

The FX were generally good although the quicksand that John Schneider got caught up in looked fake and the breakup of the Golden Gate Bridge did have a model look to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars If Your Looking For Destruction... August 28, 2004
I personally enjoyed this somewhat long, but action filled movie. Being a fan of disaster films going all the way back to Earthquake and The Towering Inferno, I was surprised at how much I liked it.

Sure, there's the know-it-all geologist and the last minute solution, but the ending is not as predictable as some other disater movies.

I thought the drama, special effects and editing were above average. It your looking for destruction this movie might be for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars 10.5 Special Effects Swarm August 27, 2005
Although the possibility of a 10.5 earthquake is minimal,and would be far more damaging that shown in the movie, this turned out to be an enjoyable piece of work. A fast moving plot from the word go, it has all the elements of a top rate disaster film. The special effects and character casting are on par with Earthquake, one of the first disaster movie of this scale. Mr, Bridges, like Mr. Heston, were by far the best choice of many fine actors and in my opinion could be the only choice for these parts.

From a scientific point however, a 10.5 quake would have devistating effects felt from the west to the east coast with far more personal tragic outcomes than were portayed.

Overall, a very good movie for those who like a fast mover.

3.0 out of 5 stars Spectacularly Implausible May 9, 2005
One must give credit to the makers of the 2004 NBC-TV 2-part movie 10.5--they do give us plenty of spectacular special effects in the story of the entire West Coast being reshaped by a chain of enormously destructive earthquakes. What they DON'T give us, however, is a plot that stands up to any close scrutiny for more than a few minutes at the most, and usually no more than a few seconds.

Kim Delaney is the maverick seismologist who insists that there are interlocking earthquake faults ready to erupt and break much of the West Coast away from the rest of the United States--a fear magnified by quakes that topple the Space Needle in Seattle, and the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Then there is the dreaded southeastern edge of the infamous San Andreas Fault Zone, which passes less than 80 miles from Los Angeles. And unless drastic measures of the W.M.D. kind are tried to repair the fault line, more than Hell will break loose.

Obviously the special effects work was what attracted large viewers to their TVs in May 2004 to watch this $20 million spectacular, and with good reason; the effects ARE the reason to watch it. Beyond all that, however, a good cast which includes Fred Ward, John Schneider, and Beau Bridges, is left out to dry with lousy dialogue, melodramatic situations that wouldn't even have passed muster in any of the disaster films of the 1970s, least of all the 1974 specatcular EARTHQUAKE, and a thoroughly implausible premise.

Still, for the special effects, if nothing else, I am giving this three stars. The scenes of Seattle, San Francisco, and Los Angeles all being eaten alive by the ground beneath them are the real reason that "10.5" works at all.
