When Ray and Emma and trying to get to the kids a container ship rises out of the water and shows the propellers on the ship. The direction in which the propellers are rotating and the pitch of the propeller blades, would result in reverse thrust i.e. the ship backing up. The ship is pointing in the direction of the Pacific Ocean and is going out to sea and trying to outrun the tsunami wave. 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 »
Los Angeles, San Francisco and even Hoover Dam in Nevada is getting wasted by series of huge earthquakes, which are caused by the San Andreas fault zone – thank god, we have Dwayne Johnson!
San Andreas is that kind of "blow your brains out and hold on!" -destruction porn, what I have waited for 19 years, since Independence Day. It is really f**n entertaining and I love'd every second of the ride.
Also the 3D is created well – even though stereoscopic effect is generated afterwards in digital post-production.
There are dozens of stupid and illogical takes and sequences that makes you face palm yourself, but the fact is, that San Andreas is just awesome disaster movie.
