Pierce Brosnan stars in this nail-biting thriller as volcanologist Harry Dalton, who comes to the sleepy town of Dante’s Peak to investigate the recent rumblings of the dormant volcano the burg is named for.

I had a 2-year stint back in high-school when i really wanted to be a geologist or a vulcanologist. Altho I sucked at math, the very nature of that work intrigued me a lot (like a few years before paleontology was my dream job). The Kraffts's death discouraged me. I love this story & its pre-CGI special effects. Brosnan's swag+charm (he owned the 90s)that hair of his should get a statue+Mayor Wando's multi-tasking <3
Bad movie with a lot of unrealistic action set-pieces where the characters should have died a dozen times in the lava, smoke or the heat of the volcano. Brosnan tries to smile himself away from the film's problems by showing off his clean white teeth every second minute. It takes too long time to start too with a long whooping hour building up it's stereotypical characters that we know will perish in the catastrophe.
