The camera work was immediately off-putting and not a little distracting. There were an overabundance of medium and close-up shots that made everything seem tight and confining. Couple that with poor lighting (half the time one actor or another was unlit....in the same shot!), and the result is the sense that no one knew what they were doing, including the editor who sharply cut every sequence so abruptly it felt like they were pressed for time. This was especially odd since they took all the time in the world to eventually get to the point, the avalanche. If you like your Styrofoam on the chunky side this movie is for you.
As for the actors: poor Rock Hudson came across as frantic, Mia Farrow seemed more capricious than usual, they should have let Rick Moses sing, and Jeanette Nolan did what she was best known for....BIG performances. Only Robert Forester came across as genuine, which made him seem out of place from the rest of the hams.
Best scene, trying to calm a hysterical woman with a glass of milk.
Otherwise, this only serves as a primer on how NOT to make a disaster movie.

Lot's of big names but terrible acting and a boring plot. It was not worth the money.

Rock Hudson and Mia Farrow as a COUPLE? NO WAY! They did not gel well together.

typical one of the early disaster flicks. Some good actors in it and fair script.

I enjoyed this movie. It showed what happens when arrogance takes over. I know a couple bosses who is like that. It's their way or no way. They have little regard for the people under them. It was a good movie, but not one of my favorites. P Burns

One of those B-movies that really are funny - if you don't expect too much. Anyway; many films with a far higher budget (see "Meteor") deliver much less. But: the best feature of the Blu-ray is the short interview with Roger Corman in the extra section: almost a lecture on filmmaking with a shoestring budget.
