I am notorious for liking bad natural disaster movies... but this is awful, even for me. The effects were awful (the opening sequence is just ridiculous), the acting very poor, the overall effect is not very interesting. The best acting was done by Xander, but this performance was mediocre for him. I just wasn't impressed at all. I'd rent this before thinking of buying it. I'm sure glad I did.

I'm always looking for disaster flicks, good or bad, that I can add to my collection. This one falls into the middling category of `just okay'. Sadly, it suffers most from a general lack of urgency. The story takes far too much time setting everything into play and then fails to deliver anything spectacular in the way of a real disaster. Yes, they do squirt cartoon lava everywhere like syrup on a pancake, but that's not nearly enough for this type of movie. A disaster is supposed to be just that. There is absolutely nothing unique here to differentiate this movie from similar offerings in this genre. Fortunately, the cast is amiable enough. Xander Berkeley does offer a certain gravitas to his role of a volcanologist who struggles to get anyone to listen to his secondhand theory of "Exodus" wherein all 1,500 volcanoes on Earth could erupt around the same time causing a huge mess. He just loves to talk and talk and talk about it (some unnecessary gobbledygook about man releasing dangerous toxins that sped up the tectonic plates.......actually, I lost all interest after he started mentioning dinnerware). Needless to say, something went wrong and it's up to mankind to fix it using that old standby for instant repairs........when in doubt, nuke it.
I found it entertaining enough to house in my collection (anything staring a Mighty Morphin Power Ranger can't be all bad).

This is a low budget film with low budget, mostly unknown actors. Still, they do an acceptable job dealing with a sorta-bad script. The effects are what you would expect for a film like this, but still it's fun to watch. I don't expect much when I buy films like this as most all of them are low budget affairs. So "you get what you pay for" applies here. Just be aware and enjoy what you get!

Originally airing on the Sci-Fi channel, this is another one of those disaster movies with a wholly illogical scientific basis and mediocre special effects. As a disaster movie, it also fails to deliver any real scenes of personal crisis or danger, leaving us with a talky treatise on governmental incompetence.

Xander Berkeley is quite good as the heroic scientist whose theory of cataclysmic disaster is rejected by other scientists; Reyko Aylesworth is very good as his estranged wife whose own life may be in peril; and Amy Jo Johnson is the oh so bright graduate student.

While certainly not a classic disaster flick, it's an okay timepasser.

The story was OK. The acting was pretty good. It's the usual problem that one scientist knows there's going to be a huge eruption to affect many thousands of people but no one will listen until it's almost too late. A professor takes some of his students along on these adventures. I liked it.

This is an incredibly bad volcano disaster from Sony, worse than most Asylum productions. It seems the earth has eaten a large double burrito and is trying to get rid of it. As the core expands, magma is coming to the earth and will kill all the mommies, puppies, and kitties. And like everything else, man has caused this, which wasn't really explained as somehow toxins in the crust have made it down near the core. Amy Jo Johnson provides the token smart girl and eye candy. Yes, and nuclear weapons must be used with precision. Seriously?

The CG effects were bad. The guy who burns up in beginning was laughable. There is one scene where kids are standing in front of a painting of Old Faithful constantly blowing steam, it was so pathetic looking. Didn't anyone see how bad that looked?

The film has some camp appeal. Certainly students of volcanology could have a party watching this film.

Guide: No f-bombs or nudity. One brief scene of implied tent sex.

I have a warm place in my heart for movies made for the ScyFy channel, as they are known now. I especially love the disaster flicks, with their wildy improbable scenarios, and dubious science. This one is one of my favorites. This stars Xander Berkeley, who gives a pretty good performance, along with a supporting cast that shades from also pretty good to just plain wacky. Great way to fill in a couple of hours when you're bored.
