Something unspeakably chilling is heating up The City of Angels. Beneath the famed La Brea Tar Pits, a raging volcano pushes to the surface, raining a storm of deadly fire bombs and an endless tide of white-hot lava upon the stunned city.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wasted Upgrade April 29, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Great Movie, but the blu-ray disc sucks - Big Time!! It's a bare bones release, auto play loop. Only the High-Def movie. No Menu. No Scene Selection. No Language setting. No Subtitles Settings. No extras. The DVD release is better. It, at least, has a menu and disc settings. I give it two thumbs down. I wanted to upgrade, but I feel ripped off by the release.

4.0 out of 5 stars COULD THIS HAPPEN IN LA? October 2, 2013
By sasha
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Volcano is the story of the eruption of a volcano in the middle of Los Angeles causing rivers of lava to run thru the streets destryoing everything in the path of the lava. The special effects are terrific and the solution is ingenious. Tommy Lee Jones performs heroic acts aided by Anne Heche.

The volcano erupts shortly into the movie so you are immediately drawn in to this disaster. Interestingly enough there were two facts noted in the movie that are actually true. The La Brea Tar Pits located in Los Angeles actually exist and tar seeps from the ground. This is a very simplified version of a complicated area - if you wish to know more - google it. My husband has seen the tar pits and they are remarkable. In Volcano the tar pits grow hotter and hotter; a small earthquate shakes LA and strange happenings in the tunnels occur.

When the volcano erupts underneath the tar pits and lava begins running thru the streets the action begins. Tommy Lee Jones is the manager of the disaster prepardness in LA; Anne Heche studies earthquakes and volcanos. When Jones asks Heche how a volcano can have such force she remarks that the eruption of St. Helens released thermal energy 1600 times the energy from the atomic bomb dropped in Hiroshima. I checked it out and that is true. So a volcano in LA is more than a disaster - it threatens everything; buildings; life; trees; cars; trucks etc.

The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is it does not rise to the level of Irwin Allen's productions i.e. The Towering Inferno; Hanging by a Thread or even the Hallmark 10.5 (which I personally love). Irwin Allen always introduced his characters and you knew them before the action started or in snippets during the action.

Nothing fancy....just your average, "end of the world..." Drama here. (If you live in Los Angeles...that is!) I really enjoyed this movie, however...the thought of Tommy Lee Jones outrunning a collapsing building is a stretch! Yet this is fine family fun and entertainment. I'm just glad I don't live in California. Having said that....I'm much closer to volcanos here in Hawaii. Who would have made a movie of Honolulu being torn by a volcano?

4.0 out of 5 stars Look at their faces; they all look the same. July 14, 2014
Format:DVD
This little end-of-the-world (where LA is a stand-in for the world) thriller covers a few days in the life of Office of Emergency Management employee Mike Roark (Tommy Lee Jones) as he improbably works with geologist Dr. Amy Barnes (Anne Heche) to avert disaster on the streets of LA - and improbably escape near death repeatedly - when a volcano erupts and destroys a bunch of stuff.

It's got the standard sentimentality of a Hollywood actioner: a father-daughter relationship at its center (the father is divorced and the mother is never seen) and a little love story blossoms amidst all the destruction. There's a lot of focus on the logistics of stopping the lava flow which I'm sure is very pseudo-sciencey and Jones somehow outruns a collapsing building to save his daughter.

Still, this thing moves along at a quick pace and there are a good amount of deadpanned one-liners. In short, it's got everything a good action movie should have, including the absolutely epic and heavy-handed, one-liner from a little boy looking at all the people covered in ash: "Look at their faces; they all look the same."
