Editorial Reviews

Chile has it all: gorgeous landscapes, smokin' hot babes, cool dudes and the wildest parties. For an American tourist, nicknamed Gringo (Eli Roth) by his two Chilean pals Ariel (Ariel Levy) and Pollo (Nicolás Martínez), the trip has been heaven on earth--except that he just can't hook up with the ladies. Gringo's luck seems to change when the group meets a trio of babes: Russian model Irina (Natasha Yarovenko), non-stop party girl Kylie (Lorenza Izzo) and her serious sister Monica (Andrea Osvárt). A night at the hottest local dance club turns into a night of terror and panic when a violent earthquake brings down paradise. Our unlucky heroes must run for their lives from looters, escaped convicts, and the inevitable aftershocks.

Aftershock is a horror movie with a unique and interesting plot: A disaster set within a disaster movie. Imagine a Hollywood disaster movie, with a smaller budget, mixed with the horror we've come to expect from Eli Roth (albeit toned down), and you've got Aftershock. However, the movie doesn't live up to that crazy premise.

The plot: Three friends (one of which is portrayed by Eli Roth) party in Chile. We spend the first half of the film meeting these guys, and learning about each of them. They meet a trio of women, and party with them throughout Chile too, both sightseeing and club hopping. While in an underground dance club in the city, an earthquake hits. Following that initial earthquake, we follow the survivors as they face many obstacles, including aftershocks from the initial blast, missing limbs, looters in the streets, loud storm sirens signalling an incoming tsunami, and freed prisoners who escaped when the initial earthquake opened up the prison. It sounds more complicated than it is, and the movie is pretty straight forward. The build-up to the disaster takes forever though, and we spend half of the film meeting the characters before the earthquake, when 20 minutes would have done the trick.

There isn't much to note in terms of acting, as no one stands out, but no one is annoying enough to warrant loads of complaints. Usually with a film like this, actors find themselves in the difficult position of not being able to act and reading a really terrible script. Not the case here, as it is just what it is. The tone and acting can be strange at times given the dire circumstances the characters find themselves in, but I did not find it to be enough to take me out of the film.

Undistinguished film by Nicholas Lopez finds three vacationing (?) friends looking for hot chicks and fun parties as they tour the hot spots of Chile in search of a good time...and they do find the ladies (the lovely Lorenza Izzo is again on board for this one) but more than they bargained for when a nightclub gets a bad case of the shakes and our heroes end up getting into one bloody mess after another.
Eli Roth, contrary to the "methods" of his friend Quentin Tarantino, is less of a control freak as both an actor and as a director and his work with this new team of Chilean collaborators is fantastic in terms of the movies having exciting color, movement, and energy...Roth-affiliated movies do get violent, but it would be wrong to say that they arrive without humor, and they are certainly entertaining. This Lopez-directed entry has a good pace, and the violent incidents are routine (to me) rather than paralyzing, but the story doesn't add up to much in the end. I suspect that the movie EARTHQUAKE (with Charlton Heston) was a cinematic reference point, but here I find the effort of this talented group to be rather slipshod and uneven. I like what Roth is doing in terms of creating modern thriller genre films (would anyone else have had the chutzpah to make a real cannibal movie in 2013 like Roth did?) but AFTERSHOCK is more like an afterthought than a well-worked out script. Antonio Quercia is one of the most underrated of thriller film cinematographers, and one can see the blazing quality of his lighting and framing in this film as well, even if it does fall short of the beautiful greens and sharp red tones found in THE GREEN INFERNO. AFTERSHOCK is a downer of a film in terms of its gradual build up to a rather pessimistic conclusion, but even for all of that it has more panache and more "cinema" in its veins than most of these other so-called better films as of late. C+

It got four stars because it needs an alert at the beginning that declares the reality it shows. This is the highly likely scenario of real events. The quality of filming and the acting is great. However, it is almost too real for me. I watch films for escape and entertainment and sometimes for truth. This is more like a representation of a documentary. It shows the dark side of humans in disaster. It shows the compassion and loyalty of friends. It ends in a reality way which is hard to take. I probably should have given it five stars. But that would make it even more real. So I could only like and not love.

Very good film. First 30 minutes is character setup, but not in a boring way. Then once the quake hits and it's non stop mayhem and suspense. All characters acted in a "real" manner. No one did or said stupid things usually seen in these kinds of films and everyone acted like you'd expect in such dire situations. It made everything feel more real and gritty. Don't want to give more away. I'll just say it's well worth the rent and gets 4 solid stars from me.

The dialogue in this movie is far more devastating than a 10.0 earthquake, if such a thing even exists. Heap on Eli Roth's atrocious acting skills (or total lack of) and you have the impeccable natural disaster. This movie is best watched by either not watching at all or skipping through most everything. Even watching this for free, I felt like I was being swindled. Save 90 minutes of your life and don't watch this.

I thought this movie was great and am a little confused by all the poor reviews! Apparently it's very polarizing...? It was disturbing yes, and I agree it was too slow to begin, but I still found it very watchable and in my opinion it was well done. Yes, there were parts that were confusing, but it's meant to be a chaotic disaster type movie. Both my husband and I were glued to the screen for this one.
