Editorial Reviews

When an oil rig causes a volcanic eruption in a small town, it's just the first in a trigger effect called the Ring of Fire that stretches across the globe. If these cataclysmic series of eruptions cannot be stopped, the earth will be swallowed whole, leading to an extinction level event.

Enjoyable, if not predictable, made for TV disaster movie pitting ruthless father energy executive against "Save the Earth" daughter. All the elements are here to entertain you. Not a lot of depth in the story, but they do develop the characters a little to make you feel their agony.

A two-parter... that probably was a bit of a s-t-r-e-t-c-h, but, I'm retired. I
HAVE the time... the popcorn... the pretzels... the "beverage-of-choice".
In short: I enjoyed myself.
I think---if seen in T=H=E TWO PARTS---with a great steak between...
it was VERY digestible.

I had expected "Ring of Fire" to be another made-for-TV type of (typical) disaster film, but this is really an incredible delight, filled with action, suspense and great acting from the entire cast! With all the oil and gas drilling, fracking, etc. taking place on our planet, "Ring of Fire" is certainly possible, which lends credence to this (potential) end-of-days miniseries. "Alias" star Michael Vartan leads a great cast.

This movie has all the elements for one of those Sci-Fi Movies. The scientist that knows all the answers, the evil corporate type who is only thinking about making money and the daughter of the evil corporate type who is the against him and trying to save the Earth. There are a few more sub-plots in this movie who are trying to make it until the final credits roll. It is decent movie if you can deal with the crazy camera movements.

And by that I mean the camera work, not the volcano. This isn't the worst disaster movie I've ever seen, but there were a few drawbacks that makes this a 3-star movie at best.

Let me first say that I have a serious weakness for disaster movies, and I have an incredibly high tolerance for cheesy special effects, lame characters, and ridiculous plot lines. I've got everything in my collection from Asylum movies, 80s made-for-tv movies, Sci-Fy channel flicks, and Hollywood blockbusters. I generally love them all (even the really bad ones).

That said, this was a tough one to like, mainly because the camera work was atrocious. I think they shot the entire 3-hour movie using a cheap hand-held camera, and the person holding the camera was *way* over their coffee quota for the day. I expect the camera to shake during earthquake sequences (and it did), but I don't see any reason for shakiness when two people are sitting on a couch talking (and there was). It just got worse as the movie went on, and by the end I was actually a little queasy.

However, the bad camera work aside, Ring of Fire was pretty standard fare as far as disaster movies go. It's a typical "unethical corporation" vs. "scientist trying to save the planet" scenario. In this case, it's an oil tycoon who illegally drills deeper than he's supposed to in a national reserve, and he accidently hits a large magma chamber. That sets off a chain reaction in the Ring of Fire, which will ultimately destroy the world if not stopped. The resident geologist, along with an environmental activist and a whistleblower, step in to save the day with a hokey, 'just-go-with-it' plan.

The special effects were good in some areas, lame in others.

Who doesn't love a good disaster flick? What with the advent of some really high-brow special effects, disaster pictures have grown into a cottage industry. Whether the world meets its inevitable demise by alien invasion, by some five-mile-wide meteor blasting in from distant stars, or by a plague of flesh-eating insects, Heaven knows it'll all look great up on the silver screen or even on the small screen because it'll be heavy on effects. RING OF FIRE - for all of its fits and starts - really wanted to show us one possible future for our planet. So far as this reviewer is concerned, if someone had held the camera still long enough for us to see what it would look like, then it might've been something.

Doesn't anyone look at dailies any more?

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come', then read on ...)

Paxton, Oregon used to be a sleepy little town. Oh, it had its share of ups and downs as the residents of this TV miniseries will tell you as they recount past deaths that led to split families and even a few divorces. But when a sinister oil baron (played by TV regular Terry O'Quinn) and his laser drill technology threatens to rip open the very fabric of the Earth, only super-scientist Dr. Matthew Cooper (Michael Vartan) with a pending brain aneurism (???) can save the day using some top-secret space capsule NASA designed to send the first man to Venus!

Still with me?

There's no point in even addressing the dubious science involved in this disastrous doomsday flick because it immediately gets lost in a vain attempt to maintain some semblance of suspense/action throughout. There are just too many characters, too many subplots, to address in three hours of mind numbing nonsense. Michael Vartan looks stricken from start to finish, Terry O'Quinn just looks bored, while Lauren Lee Smith is all over the place trying to get a handle on what her character is all about (an angry daughter, extreme protester of everything, deadbeat mom, publicity seeking glory hound, witless wonder.............). It literally takes forever before anything of interest actually happens. Everyone has ulterior motives, everyone acts sneaky and suspicious, and just when you think it couldn't get any more complicated, out of nowhere an ex-con brother to one of the minor characters shows up. Sure, why not, they had three hours to kill (and a lot of insignificant people to dispatch). In a word, this movie is ponderous. It slowly grinds to the inevitable expected outcome and perhaps the dopiest final shots ever slapped on film. You know you're in trouble when you hear an actor spout horrific dialog like this: "Our environment is bullied every single day."
