2015 - SAN ANDREAS. the disaster film is alive and well

Not too much to say about this one.   The Rock must save his family from a couple of earthquakes as the big one finally hits California.  In the good old days of movies our here was always a special ops guy who had been stationed in Vietnam.  Nowadays he's a former soldier who was stationed in Iraq.  The more things change the more they stay the same.

Well anyway after numerous warnings from earthquake specialist Paul Giamatti who's big time slumming for a paycheck, the computer effects kick in and they are very superior computer effects I will grant that.

Will The Rock save his big breasted daughter and big breasted wife?  The bigger question does anyone remember Earthquake in Sensurround of which this movie is essentially a remake.

San Andreas is another film in that strange genre known as "disaster porn."

114 minutes.
