"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.
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."
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!"
