We start in the hills of West Virginia where Charley "Boomer" Baxter (Eriq LaSalle) is blasting a mountain. By accident, Baxter set off a masssive earthquake that is felt as away as Washington D.C. were Dr. Amy Lane (Brittany Mruhpyy)is with her fmaily. Within a giant Megafault is created that is racing across the country, leaving death in it wake. With the help of Dr. Mark Rhodes (Bruce Davidson) and serect miltary weapon that came create earthquakes, Lane and Baxter race to the stop the megafualt before it hits Califoria.
"Megafualt" is not a great movie but really not that bad. The writers have all the usual things that you expect to. One person that is right while everyone else is wrong, cute kid, the one character that you know will be dead before it over, the miltary that is either the cause of the problem or has the secret weapon to save the day. Overall Megafault is the type of movie that Syfy puts out and you may just want to rent it instead of buying it.

This movie was hilarious. My husband and I had a great time making fun of the absolutely horrible special effects (reminiscent of the old Power Ranger shows). The acting was so bad it was funny but truly, the special effects were what truly made the movie entertaining. It's only worth watching if you have a warped sense of humor like we do. It was seriously so bad it was funny.

"Megafault" is a disaster film from Syfy (formerly known as the Sci Fi Channel), starring late Brittany Murphy as Dr. Amy Lane, a scientist trying to stop the global disaster caused by an enormous earthquake. Though the premise looks like some Roland Emmerich movie, "Magafault" is far less entertaining with an impossible storyline, cheesy effects and inept direction. The horrible film is, however, not without entertainment value in an "Ed Wood" kind of way.

I don't want to repeat the story here. In short, it is about a big fault destroying the whole country. A huge fissure runs, swallowing up people (about 20 or more), destroying buildings (created by cheesy computer graphics), while our heroes and heroine are desperate to save their family, and save the day, too. This is a familiar format so poorly executed that some parts of it have become an unintentional comedy.

I don't need scientific accuracy in this kind of action films, but when a crack in the ground starts chasing a tank truck in the two-lane road accompanied by lots of explosions (fake ones, I guess), there is something wrong with the script. The huge fissure runs across America, from east to west, hitting some of the big cities while seismologists talk about the possibility of "stopping" the quake. With this silly story and boring actions, "Megafault" doesn't have a chance from the beginning.

The cast includes such talented actors as Brittany Murphy, Eriq La Salle and Bruce Davison. They are doing their best with what they have been given, and should not be blamed. Sadly this is the last TV production for Brittany Murphy, who passed away on December 20, 2009.

The film is directed by David Michael Latt, co-founder of The Asylum, one of the most prolific independent studio producing straight-to-DVD titles such as "Transmorphers," "The Day the Earth Stopped" and "2012 Doomsday."

Brittany Murphy's tragic death may have interrupted a talented actress' bright future but this megabomb certainly isn't a high point. Badly miscast as a seismologist (??) and saddled with a horrible script, Murphy sleepwalks through this film surrounded by shoddy effects and shameful performances from co-stars Eriq Lasalle, Bruce Davison and Paul Logan. SyFy should leave disaster movies alone if this is the best they can do (although it's better than 2012 SUPERNOVA).

I am a fan of disaster flicks. There can never be enough disaster flicks to suit my needs. Which forces me to consider any and all entrants in this category. Megafault is just one in a long line of similarly plotted epics involving the possible end of the world. In this case, a seismic fault starts to tear across the country. With the help of a secret satellite weapon they desperately try to stop its progress, try to divert its direction, and finally, when it doubt, blow it up. The FX is about what you can expect from this era of CGI. It doesn't look any more fake then the tiny models of yesteryear that Godzilla routinely stomped on. The story is par for the course; all disaster movies follow the same formula. There's always the obligatory scientist (seismologist Dr. Amy, played by the late Brittany Murphy), the military is always represented by someone, and the hero (Eriq La Salle as Boomer) who has to save the day. For good measure, they even tossed in Bruce Davison as Dr. Amy's mentor. It's a thankless role; he really doesn't do much in the scheme of things. There's also a child in jeopardy (Dr. Amy's daughter). Homes get wrecked, highways are ripped apart, people combust. And it's all made terribly official by place names and times periodically appearing on the screen. Will humanity survive!?!

My rule of thumb for disaster flicks is the more ridiculous the premise the more fun it is. This movie pretty much satisfies my quotient of fun. It's a keeper.

I watched the "Special Director's cut" a film cut by the special director. It is nice to know that the world is going to end because of a guy named "Boomer" (Eriq La Salle) who likes to blow things up. A megafault is created and only world renown seismologist Brittany Murphy can save the world...or reunite with her family instead.

The movie uses CG graphics for the special effects.

This film is no different than other Asylum/ SyFy disaster films which all have the same basic plot. This one was not as much fun as some of the other ones, except for the fact Brittany Murphy is the most unconvincing scientist I have ever seen.

It is also nice to know that when an earthquake happens, you do the same thing as when Russian missiles attack... get under the table. Whatever happened to standing in the doorway?

Tough to sit through
