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.

4.0 out of 5 stars COULD THIS HAPPEN IN LA? October 2, 2013
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic volcanic scenes burns a weak script and average acting
The special effects scenes are spectacular to watch and hear. The film delivers as an action film BUT ... the script is quite weak (an expected fact in these type of films). Read more
