1.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious January 31, 2010
Format:DVD
This movie was hilarious. My husband and I had a great time making fun of the absolutely horrible special effects (reminiscent of the old Power Ranger shows). The acting was so bad it was funny but truly, the special effects were what truly made the movie entertaining. It's only worth watching if you have a warped sense of humor like we do. It was seriously so bad it was funny.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible "Disaster Film" March 23, 2010
Format:DVD
"Megafault" is a disaster film from Syfy (formerly known as the Sci Fi Channel), starring late Brittany Murphy as Dr. Amy Lane, a scientist trying to stop the global disaster caused by an enormous earthquake. Though the premise looks like some Roland Emmerich movie, "Magafault" is far less entertaining with an impossible storyline, cheesy effects and inept direction. The horrible film is, however, not without entertainment value in an "Ed Wood" kind of way.

I don't want to repeat the story here. In short, it is about a big fault destroying the whole country. A huge fissure runs, swallowing up people (about 20 or more), destroying buildings (created by cheesy computer graphics), while our heroes and heroine are desperate to save their family, and save the day, too. This is a familiar format so poorly executed that some parts of it have become an unintentional comedy.

I don't need scientific accuracy in this kind of action films, but when a crack in the ground starts chasing a tank truck in the two-lane road accompanied by lots of explosions (fake ones, I guess), there is something wrong with the script. The huge fissure runs across America, from east to west, hitting some of the big cities while seismologists talk about the possibility of "stopping" the quake. With this silly story and boring actions, "Megafault" doesn't have a chance from the beginning.

The cast includes such talented actors as Brittany Murphy, Eriq La Salle and Bruce Davison. They are doing their best with what they have been given, and should not be blamed. Sadly this is the last TV production for Brittany Murphy, who passed away on December 20, 2009.

The film is directed by David Michael Latt, co-founder of The Asylum, one of the most prolific independent studio producing straight-to-DVD titles such as "Transmorphers," "The Day the Earth Stopped" and "2012 Doomsday."

3.0 out of 5 stars It ok, but nothing great January 17, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We start in the hills of West Virginia where Charley "Boomer" Baxter (Eriq LaSalle) is blasting a mountain. By accident, Baxter set off a masssive earthquake that is felt as away as Washington D.C. were Dr. Amy Lane (Brittany Mruhpyy)is with her fmaily. Within a giant Megafault is created that is racing across the country, leaving death in it wake. With the help of Dr. Mark Rhodes (Bruce Davidson) and serect miltary weapon that came create earthquakes, Lane and Baxter race to the stop the megafualt before it hits Califoria.
"Megafualt" is not a great movie but really not that bad. The writers have all the usual things that you expect to. One person that is right while everyone else is wrong, cute kid, the one character that you know will be dead before it over, the miltary that is either the cause of the problem or has the secret weapon to save the day. Overall Megafault is the type of movie that Syfy puts out and you may just want to rent it instead of buying it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just Missed it's Mark... November 16, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
Megafault just misses as a sci-fi classic. Great concept! Awesome acting done by big names who really want to stretch their Hollywood-homogonized wings. Murphy and La Salle will probably be on board for the sequel...but really watch for the RV scene, where the driver, I think his name is Gil, runs with the script in his pocket. That will be a Trivial Pursuit question...you're welcome.

2.0 out of 5 stars WHOSE FAULT IS IT? February 28, 2010
Format:DVD
Brittany Murphy's tragic death may have interrupted a talented actress' bright future but this megabomb certainly isn't a high point. Badly miscast as a seismologist (??) and saddled with a horrible script, Murphy sleepwalks through this film surrounded by shoddy effects and shameful performances from co-stars Eriq Lasalle, Bruce Davison and Paul Logan. SyFy should leave disaster movies alone if this is the best they can do (although it's better than 2012 SUPERNOVA).

1.0 out of 5 stars Megafault - mini fun June 28, 2010
Format:DVD
Not a good movie. Bad actiing, marginal effects, the best past was the "Making of" special feature.
OK, the scientific basis is utter BS and I can live with that but even with that this movie does
not really play fair within its own context. Actions and reasons of the characters make no sense
at many points and violate even the most minimal of common sense.

1.0 out of 5 stars That, Mr Cavett, is entertainment! May 20, 2010
By snavem
Format:Blu-ray
Passenger: "Stop the truck!" Truck driver: "I can't. I've got an earthquake on my tail!". Good writing is the foundation of quality cinema. That line perfectly sums up Megafault. It stars the Late Brittney Murphy as Dr. Amy Lane, World Renown Seismologist. Bulls Eye casting . Though rumor has it Brittney Spears was the first choice but she was bald at the time which just didn't seem right. Eric LaSalle plays Boomer. A man who since childhood was a gifted blower upper. Though maybe a bit short on geography and physics. Dr. Lane: "We would have to move the Grand Canyon." Boomer: "Why can't we?" And to fill the role of mature authority figure and mentor, Bruce Davison. Fresh off his record setting run as Willy Lohman in Death of a Salesmen at Larry's Dinner Theater and All you can eat truck stop buffet on route 38, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Pure casting brilliance.
Throw in budget busting special effects by the famed CGI creator that brought you such hits as Pong and Space Invaders and you have it all. Acting, writing and a visual experience that can only be described as astounding. As a footnote, kudos to Megafault for showing once and for all that earthquake faults do indeed chase after moving vehicles.
And I must mention Director David Michael Latt whose deft touch was responsible for this quality production. A budding genius who has brought such classics to the screen as 'Jane White is Sick and Twisted' and `The 18 Year Old Virgin` (Producer) . Most notably the true 2005 gem, War of the Worlds. Not the hack version thrown on the screen by that Spielberg character. I can only give this classic my highest recommendation. "That, Mr. Cavett, is entertainment!"
