"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.
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."
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.
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
