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.

The acting was pretty good.

I am notorious for liking bad natural disaster movies... but this is awful, even for me.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Magma: Volcanic Disaster: 5 out of 10: The always watchable Xander Berkley (24) and the impish Amy Jo Johnson (Pink Power Ranger) lead a surprisingly solid cast down made for television disaster movie hell.

With Made for TV disaster movies the questions are not how good are certain elements but how mind numbingly awful will these elements be. Stack the deck with the terrifying fact this is a made for Sci-fi Channel Disaster movie (Only PAX is worse) and anything above pure pain is a feat of cinematic luck. This is not pure pain.

As I said the leads were watchable and the screenplay liked to actually kill off characters on screen which is a nice touch. In addition Amy Jo Johnson's attempts to simultaneously bed Xander Berkley and save his marriage were more entertaining than anything else in the movie. (Usually in disaster movies these subplots put the "T" in tedium.) Alas the rest of the movie is a true disaster and both the screenwriter and the effects/sets departments share blame. First off all most natural disasters are not caused by man. Perhaps a look near a dictionary for the definition of natural might clear this up.

The idea that nuclear testing and chemical waste is polluting the core of the earth (it's solid by the way and starts about 400 miles below the surface) causing it to expand is not the most ridiculous premise for a movie (that is shared by this film's bigger sister The Core, The Day After Tomorrow and Sixteen Candles) but it is close.

As for the special effects guys I know the CGI lava looks bad and the model subs are wanting but if you're going to put the characters in a lava tunnel perhaps one without actual lights attached on the walls would be better. And what kind of underground mine was that anyway?
