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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

And by that I mean the camera work, not the volcano. This isn't the worst disaster movie I've ever seen, but there were a few drawbacks that makes this a 3-star movie at best.

Let me first say that I have a serious weakness for disaster movies, and I have an incredibly high tolerance for cheesy special effects, lame characters, and ridiculous plot lines. I've got everything in my collection from Asylum movies, 80s made-for-tv movies, Sci-Fy channel flicks, and Hollywood blockbusters. I generally love them all (even the really bad ones).

That said, this was a tough one to like, mainly because the camera work was atrocious. I think they shot the entire 3-hour movie using a cheap hand-held camera, and the person holding the camera was *way* over their coffee quota for the day. I expect the camera to shake during earthquake sequences (and it did), but I don't see any reason for shakiness when two people are sitting on a couch talking (and there was). It just got worse as the movie went on, and by the end I was actually a little queasy.

However, the bad camera work aside, Ring of Fire was pretty standard fare as far as disaster movies go. It's a typical "unethical corporation" vs. "scientist trying to save the planet" scenario. In this case, it's an oil tycoon who illegally drills deeper than he's supposed to in a national reserve, and he accidently hits a large magma chamber. That sets off a chain reaction in the Ring of Fire, which will ultimately destroy the world if not stopped. The resident geologist, along with an environmental activist and a whistleblower, step in to save the day with a hokey, 'just-go-with-it' plan.

The special effects were good in some areas, lame in others.

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.

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

I would have given this movie 3 points, maybe even 4, despite the doubtful non-science behind and the misleading title. The first part was entertaining and had promise. The second part was not watchable at all. I fast-forwarded in good hope that they'd find the tripod that they lost at the end of the first part, but to no avail. Calling this nonsense (the more correct term starts with a b) of the constantly shaking camera reality format just stinks. I couldn't watch it, and I'm convinced that I'm not the only one who gets a headache from this (you pick the term).
Save the money, rent it if need be, and call yourself lucky if you can watch it without getting a serious headache.
