Editorial Reviews

An action-filled sci-fi disaster film in the vein of Dante's Peak, Magma: Volcanic Disaster centers around unexplainable volcanic activity which threatens the world's population. A team of scientists set out to gather the evidence needed to convince government officials that the end is near and devise a plan to potentially prevent Armageddon.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing January 21, 2007
I am notorious for liking bad natural disaster movies... but this is awful, even for me. The effects were awful (the opening sequence is just ridiculous), the acting very poor, the overall effect is not very interesting. The best acting was done by Xander, but this performance was mediocre for him. I just wasn't impressed at all. I'd rent this before thinking of buying it. I'm sure glad I did.

3.0 out of 5 stars MUSHY MAGMA December 31, 2006
Originally airing on the Sci-Fi channel, this is another one of those disaster movies with a wholly illogical scientific basis and mediocre special effects. As a disaster movie, it also fails to deliver any real scenes of personal crisis or danger, leaving us with a talky treatise on governmental incompetence.

Xander Berkeley is quite good as the heroic scientist whose theory of cataclysmic disaster is rejected by other scientists; Reyko Aylesworth is very good as his estranged wife whose own life may be in peril; and Amy Jo Johnson is the oh so bright graduate student.

While certainly not a classic disaster flick, it's an okay timepasser.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Too Bad. February 22, 2011
By Dufus
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a low budget film with low budget, mostly unknown actors. Still, they do an acceptable job dealing with a sorta-bad script. The effects are what you would expect for a film like this, but still it's fun to watch. I don't expect much when I buy films like this as most all of them are low budget affairs. So "you get what you pay for" applies here. Just be aware and enjoy what you get!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice July 10, 2010
I'll start by admitting that the story may not be the best ever, but it wasn't that bad either. And the main reason I watched it, other than the natural disaster story,....Amy. Jo. Johnson. That's right the original Pink Ranger. My first tv crush, and she's still a crush of mine. I'd watch most anything she's in. I really enjoy this movie over and over again.

3.0 out of 5 stars Definitely a B-Grade movie February 24, 2009
Obviously done on the cheap. For example; In a scene where there were supposed to be multiple explosions, was really one explosion done at different angles. Would have worked fine if they had bothered to check the background, and noticed that the extra that got hit in the first explosion, was the same extra that got hit in the second and third explosions.
It's like this throughout the entire movie. Very poor film continuation, weak plot and cornier than a bowl of popcorn. And it's so obvious.
Good for a laugh at the special effects, which again were definitely done on the cheap.

3.0 out of 5 stars Typical Made for TV Disaster Movie December 14, 2006
I won't spoil this movie for anyone who hasn't seen it so this review will be short. Having seen this movie on the Sci Fi Channel, I can say it is about average for a made for TV disaster movie. It starts off good with an interesting premise and quickly goes downhill as the plot become cheesier and cheesier.

The only bright spots in the entire movie are the characters played by Xander Berkeley and Reiko Aylesworth who most people probably know from the Fox show "24." Despite the mediocre script and ridiculous plotline, both manage to shine in their roles. If you're a fan of either Xander or Reiko, the movie is worth purchasing.

I'm always looking for disaster flicks, good or bad, that I can add to my collection. This one falls into the middling category of `just okay'. Sadly, it suffers most from a general lack of urgency. The story takes far too much time setting everything into play and then fails to deliver anything spectacular in the way of a real disaster. Yes, they do squirt cartoon lava everywhere like syrup on a pancake, but that's not nearly enough for this type of movie. A disaster is supposed to be just that. There is absolutely nothing unique here to differentiate this movie from similar offerings in this genre. Fortunately, the cast is amiable enough. Xander Berkeley does offer a certain gravitas to his role of a volcanologist who struggles to get anyone to listen to his secondhand theory of "Exodus" wherein all 1,500 volcanoes on Earth could erupt around the same time causing a huge mess. He just loves to talk and talk and talk about it (some unnecessary gobbledygook about man releasing dangerous toxins that sped up the tectonic plates.......actually, I lost all interest after he started mentioning dinnerware). Needless to say, something went wrong and it's up to mankind to fix it using that old standby for instant repairs........when in doubt, nuke it.
I found it entertaining enough to house in my collection (anything staring a Mighty Morphin Power Ranger can't be all bad).
