Considering that the characters in this film are little more than the paper-thin and empathy-proof stereotypes you'd expect to find in a generic slasher movie, I have to conclude that "San Andreas" was designed solely for the kind of viewer who derives a perverse thrill from watching major cities wiped off the map in photorealistic detail. And you know what? I'm okay with that.
One because I love The Rock! It doesn't add anything to disaster's table. I don't know why, but I'd like to know more about the old couple that went to their son's house in the mountains. Or did it show them and I didn't noticed?
Irwin Allen eat your heart out. This modern disaster movie delivers on the effects but yet again asks us to root for one broken family and ignore the thousands upon thousands dying in the background around them. Silly scientist subplot adds nothing to the picture other than a paycheque for Paul Giamatti, Johnson delivers on the stoic he-man with a heart and nice to see Gugino in a starring role. Nothing special.
This is the best disaster film ever made. Peyton knows exactly what the film is supposed to be and brings it home. No more, no less. And yes, Carla Gugino was appallingly bad, but if there was any doubt that The Rock is the Arnold Schwarzenegger of this generation, this film cinches it.
I watched this cause I'm a fan of Johnson and Gugino. As disaster movies go this one has everything you´d ask for and then some. Unfortunately that means that it is therefore generic and forgettable to say the least. Still I was entertained despite the obvious missteps in both plot and characterisation. Good for one watch but rewatch value is zero!
15/100 (Hahahhahahahahahah ilk yarım saatten sonra gözlerimden yaşlar gelene kadar gülerek izledim. Hayatım boyunca izlediğim 895 film içinde en mantıksız film olmayı başararak rekor kırdı. Mantık hatalarını sıralamaya çalışan biri on saat mesai harcamalı. Bir Malkoçoğlu bir bu film artık. En sevdiğim iki komedi filmi. Son 30 dakikada yaklaşık on tane sahne tahmin ederek kendi rekorumu da kırdım hahahahhaa)
