Summary: A volcano movie, how original.
Pierce Brosnan stars as a government geologist who studies volcanic activity in this action/disaster film about a volcano that erupts over a small mountainside village. There is a love interest, of course, but the plot really doesn't have much time to develop before the eruption happens and we're off to the races with special effects. Technically, it's a great feat, and the cinematography is great, but the story isn't much of a story. Sadly, with a year packed with disaster films, the concept gets a little tired after a while.
