Editorial Reviews

L.A. has seen it all, but it's never been through anything like this. A raging volcano has formed beneath the LaBrea Tar Pits, and the City of Angels is about to become a red-hot inferno. This edge of your seat special effects extravaganza was hailed as the first great action film of the year.

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.

its still a blu-ray but i dont think it's an official release of the movie. first its not distributed by 20th century fox its movie producer studio. Second the load screens and fbi warnings are not original. and third there is no menu screen or anything for setting although you can select subtitiles from your player and once the movies doe its auto-playbacks

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."

THE STORY: A minor earthquake shakes up a growing magma pocket pooling deep under California's La Brea Tar Pits. A heavy aftershock early the next morning wakes it fully and an honest-to-goodness volcano begins erupting in the center of of LA's famed Miracle Mile district. It's up to craggy-faced Tommy Lee Jones as Mike Roarke, Director of the O.E.M. (Office of Emergency Management) to figure out a way to stanch the unrelenting river of ruthless liquid rock and safeguard the stunned citizens before the entire city of Los Angles is burned & buried under a massive molten lava flow.

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.

Audio was weak for a blu ray and the video transfer had too many imperfections considering age of the movie. This blu ray not worth more than $5.00 as new.

We have watched this countless times, and always find it just as enjoyable as the first viewing. In fact, on some movie nights, we will watch this, back-to-back with 'Independence Day.' 'Volcano' is as exciting & grabs your attention and keeps it throughout the movie, just like 'Independence Day' does. Tommy Lee Jones is at his Best in acting performance, as well as the entire cast.

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!
