Editorial Reviews

When an oil rig causes a volcanic eruption in a small town, it's just the first in a trigger effect called the Ring of Fire that stretches across the globe. If these cataclysmic series of eruptions cannot be stopped, the earth will be swallowed whole, leading to an extinction level event.

5.0 out of 5 stars An action-packed GEM of an adventure! May 20, 2013
By Dee J.
Format:DVD
I had expected "Ring of Fire" to be another made-for-TV type of (typical) disaster film, but this is really an incredible delight, filled with action, suspense and great acting from the entire cast! With all the oil and gas drilling, fracking, etc. taking place on our planet, "Ring of Fire" is certainly possible, which lends credence to this (potential) end-of-days miniseries. "Alias" star Michael Vartan leads a great cast.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disastrous Cinematography Kills Disaster Picture June 11, 2013
Format:DVD
Who doesn't love a good disaster flick? What with the advent of some really high-brow special effects, disaster pictures have grown into a cottage industry. Whether the world meets its inevitable demise by alien invasion, by some five-mile-wide meteor blasting in from distant stars, or by a plague of flesh-eating insects, Heaven knows it'll all look great up on the silver screen or even on the small screen because it'll be heavy on effects. RING OF FIRE - for all of its fits and starts - really wanted to show us one possible future for our planet. So far as this reviewer is concerned, if someone had held the camera still long enough for us to see what it would look like, then it might've been something.

Doesn't anyone look at dailies any more?

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come', then read on ...)

Paxton, Oregon used to be a sleepy little town. Oh, it had its share of ups and downs as the residents of this TV miniseries will tell you as they recount past deaths that led to split families and even a few divorces. But when a sinister oil baron (played by TV regular Terry O'Quinn) and his laser drill technology threatens to rip open the very fabric of the Earth, only super-scientist Dr. Matthew Cooper (Michael Vartan) with a pending brain aneurism (???) can save the day using some top-secret space capsule NASA designed to send the first man to Venus!

Still with me?

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible movie, hammish acting, no science February 16, 2014
Format:DVD
Seldom have I seen a movie whose science is this weak, whose premise is this far fetched, in which the story is so unfathomably unbelievable as to be almost unwatchable. The idea that a single volcano, long been thought to be extinct, having it's magma chamber drilled into, could trigger the entire Ring Of Fire to destabilize and cause a global extinction level event is ... well, it's on a par with the flat earth theory and an earth centered cosmos. Forget for a moment that one volcano erupting would in fact ease pressure in any connected system, not increase it, and just wonder at how the entire Ring Of Fire could be made to unstable globally, yet the very local 'fissure' they use to 'relieve' that pressure didn't already blow under the same forces ... and yet, miraculously, a simple sonic 'bomb' was able to do it. I'm mostly shocked that any studio spent money on this without having a science geek at least tweak the baseline premise so as to make it possible for the watcher to suspend disbelief. No, sadly, the story premise is so poor that the rest of the plot is entirely unsustainable and the actors, while putting in a valiant effort, are unable to carry any sense of plausible drama or sincerity throughout. This is two hours of your life you can't get back - so spend them watching something else, or better yet, go hiking with your kids, because there's more excitement and danger in them there trees than there is in this movie.

"We can release the magma safely, by making a hole into the volcanoe"...There is only so much, my mind can take.

1.0 out of 5 stars cinematography blew it all December 20, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
I bet the camera man was a six year old, who can't hold the camera still. I couldn't watch it continuously for a min. Every scene, especially in s1:ep2 was shot terribly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Made for TV script disaster movie August 15, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Enjoyable, if not predictable, made for TV disaster movie pitting ruthless father energy executive against "Save the Earth" daughter. All the elements are here to entertain you. Not a lot of depth in the story, but they do develop the characters a little to make you feel their agony.

1.0 out of 5 stars RING OF FIRE? June 29, 2013
Format:DVD
IF THIS IS A "REMAKE" OF THE ORIGINAL, I HOPE THE ORIGINAL PRODUCERS DIDN'T GRANT ANY RIGHTS BESIDES THE TITLE, BECAUSE, IT SUCKS!
IT JUST PROVES THAT, GOOD ACTING AND A FAMOUS TITLE CANNOT OVERCOME POOR WRITING AND DIRECTION.
VERY DISAPPOINTED.

I enjoyed the story line and Michael Vartan as always portrayed a character in a realistic way, not over the top as most actors in Hollywood do.

This movie was a bit of a disappointment. Watched with my husband. Have seen much better movies. Too many irrational moves by the characters. Just not well done.
