Editorial Reviews

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. Experience the pulse-pounding thrills as the dream capital of the world erupts into the stuff nightmares are made of.

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 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."

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?
