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."
THOUGHTS: Fairly dumb-headed popcorn film that I enjoy for some reason. Most likely due to my admiration of Tommy Lee Jones' work over the years. Movie treats audience and film's characters as though not a single one of us or them have ever heard of lava or volcanoes before. Yes, I know that the writer of the screenplay has to somehow get all of the audience members up to speed on the various components of the script, but it is very poorly and stupidly done: the head of the O.E.M. doesn't know what magma is? Really?!? A local TV reporter apparently doesn't know what the stuff is either, given his bone-brained explanation of how the tar from the La Brea Tar Pits appears to have "overflowed and caught fire." 6th grade basic science class, anyone? LOL. Still, this movie can be enjoyed on a "put your brain in park and just enjoy the action & noise" summer blockbuster level. The visual destruction & volcano effects are plentiful and, for the most part, are done pretty well even though they definitely show their age compared to more modern CGI-fests. The then-topical Mark Fuhrman/Rodney King references also hopelessly date the film.Read more ›
L.A. was Not prepared for what was about to happen, and when 'Volcano' decided to invade & cause chaos, the movie became more-and-more thrilling. Sound Effects & Special Effects were totally awesome, and you were compelled to find out how it ended, and who survives.
The explosive action had you on the edge-of-your-seat through some scenes, and the entertainment continues, until the final curtains close. Thrilling, action-packed, and entertaining throughout. Highly recommended!

Its a popcorn movie. Anybody expecting Shakespeare or even Citizen Kane is being naïve. The acting was not bad at all, and the effects were quite good. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Howard Ferstler
I remember this movie when it came out, I suppose I didn't recognize horrible acting yet. This movie is pretty dumb, but near the end its somewhat entertaining. Read morePublished 23 days ago by Tom
