Modern vehicles can rarely be "hot wired" in the traditional sense as they have locking steering columns and the majority require the key fob or key's electronic chip in or near the vehicle to start them. Ray would not have been to "hot wire" the truck and then drive as the model was too new. See more »
The end credits scroll with a bend at the top and bottom of the screen, as though they are on a rotating seismograph drum. Seismic lines, increasing in intensity, can be seen on the left side of the frame. See more »
Lousy, one-dimensional acting. Stupid script. Muscle-bound male hero with a never-changing scowl and female leads with big, heaving breasts. Filmmakers apparently never matured beyond the 14-year-old pubescent male stage.
But I didn't give it a "1" because they spent a lot of time with the digital effects and they were pretty cool.
And frankly, leveling San Francisco would be a boon to humanity, so this movie isn't about a catastrophe after all.
In summary, this is the sort of movie where all involved in the project hold their noses while accepting their paychecks.
