Editorial Reviews

Under Yellowstone, America's first national park, lies the Yellowstone Caldera, a giant hot spot for volcanic activity. What scientists call a super volcano. Now after hundreds of thousands of years lying dormant it threatens to erupt. This eruption could wipe out much of the United States killing millions. Suddenly, without warning, a small part of the caldera bursts. Temperatures plummet and the sky fills with dirty, black clouds of volcanic ash and destructive lightning. Lava erupts from the earth, boils over the crater rims, and rushes across the country side at speeds over 100 miles per hour vaporizing forests, animals, and tourists. As the rest of the caldera puffs and steams and threatens to explode, it's up to Yellowstone's top scientist and an adrenaline junkie Park Ranger to halt the erupting caldera. They must plug the lava, as well as stop the poisonous volcano clouds from spreading before the sky turns black and the entire world is frozen in a permanent, apocalyptic volcano winter.

Super Eruption: A Solid B-Movie Funded By SyFy

There are few phrases that inspire so much fear in people. "Direct-to-DVD" is one of them. "SyFy Presents" is another. Sadly, both of those monikers can apply to SUPER ERUPTION, and that's a shame because, as a flick, it works just fine. No, not all of it makes perfect sense. No, not all of it is original - many of the story's central tenets are borrowed wholesale from other films that have served them greater justice. But there's something to be said for a telefilm that knows what it is - a telefilm - just doing the best it can to set up, execute, and deliver a story for Saturday night folks with their butts parked firmly on the couch.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and character. If you're the type 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 ...)

A "super volcano" lying in wait beneath Yellowstone National Park erupts, bringing about an end to life as we know it! (And that's only the first ten minutes!) Then, the audience is given the assurance of "two days earlier" and the rest of our story can be told: Park Ranger Charlie Young (played by the always reliable Richard Burgi, whom I've enjoyed all the way back to his days on UPN's THE SENTINEL) and Volcanologist Kate (the lovely Juliet Aubrey) are trying to piece together the puzzle of some unusual events taking place on Earth when Kate receives a Skyped message from the future version of herself (no kidding), warning her of the coming cataclysm.

Basing this on a bit of fact...there is an incipient danger of the forces under Yellowstone one day coming to life and destroying everything for hundreds of miles...this film is better than some though it tends to mix genres in a confusing way. The story opens in the middle of the disaster already happening and then flashes back to two days before and takes it from there. A female scientist is the lead this time with the male lead a very downplayed second. There's the usual plot line of rangers going out and herding people to safety, a few casualties, and the solution, presented with the fact that someone has to go on a suicide mission to stop the lava flow. Nothing new there. What IS different is that the head of the government unit actually works with the scientist and she's also female instead of some belligerent general. Her assistant is the nay-sayer and he gets over-ridden each time...FAST. In the midst of all this, there's a bit of time travel which jars momentarily on the nerves and may cause the viewer to do a double-take. There's a long drawn-out segment in which the solution to stopping the disaster is given and that obviously appears to be simply to lengthen the viewing time. If someone from the future knows what's happening and has the answer, why give part of it, then say, "I'll tell the next section later?" Since the heroine is in am observation tower which is in danger of being engulfed by lava, why not give it ALL right then? Nevertheless, this one is a bit above the other disaster movies because it does buck the cliches a little and because of that I'll give it 4-stars.

I am a disaster movie aficianado and this was not bad at all. I thought the acting was relatively decent, loved the little plot twist, and genuinely enjoyed the movie. It's no 'Dantes Peak' but if you want to kick back with an unoffensive little disaster movie, this one will work.

And the sify thriller really streches your imaginations. Very very good watching. Especialy when you think about it that at one time ago there was actually a real Volcaino under the yellow stone park and it is still very active to day.

This isn't a science film, it is cheap entertainment you can get at home especially on a cold snowy night. I bought it and was satisfied with my purchase. I knew exactly what I was purchasing, sure, alot of it went over my head. If you are looking for high brow entertainment, then choose PBS. My taste are of the UPN type, Star Trek Voyager, Seven Days, The Sentinel and so on. I enjoyed the ride.

This movie is so terrible that it's great! I've been a Yellowstone tour guide for four years, and let me tell you, nothing in this movie is even close to accurate, but I throw it in whenever I need a good laugh.

Super Eruption is a good little B-Class movie. The one thing I like about it is the fact there is romance in a twisted sort of way and I loved the way it's there, yet isn't there. FX are good enough to grip you and hang on tight, and the fact that where the eruption takes place could actually happen at any time gives you something to think about long after you've finished the movie. If you're looking for entertainment, then I'd say this movie delivers well enough!

"Super Eruption" is a made for the SyFy Channel product that chronicles the effects of a potential eruption of the massive volcanic caldera that houses Yellowstone National Park. Personally, I love a good disaster flik and am particularly drawn to scenarios that involve volcanic and/or tsunami imagery. "Super Eruption" definitely delivered lotsa lava action, but was pretty flawed in many areas of its' basic plot development and editing - thus detracting from its' enjoyment level.

Perhaps one of the most disturbing elements, for me, was the fact that the film was obviously NOT shot in Yellowstone Park - or even America. As is the case with much SyFy Channel product the end credits revealed that the production took place in Eastern Europe and the landscape just didn't look 'right'. I have had the pleasure of visiting Yellowstone and know what it looks like - this factor alone made it hard to get into the feel of the film. The acting was all reasonably well done, but the story line was so 'by the numbers', that it didn't manage to build any kind of suspense or intrigue and, ultimately, relied on some rather improbable plot twists and ridiculously un-realisitic actions that totally destroyed any credibility in the plot. The CGI effects were pretty decent throughout but they felt sorta 'wasted' due to the sloppiness of the screenplay.

A vastly superior take on the same Yellowstone eruption premise was realized in the Knowledge Network generated docu-drama "Super Volcano" which is available on DVD (albeit somewhat scarce), and the Yellowstone sequence in the film "2012" also gives much better 'bang for the buck'. Still - "Super Eruption" wasn't the worst thing I've seen come out of the SyFy pipeline and it could be recommended for some light weight diversion by fans of the genre.
