A ludicrously breezy Die Hard love letter.
Bouncing boobs and The Rock can’t save this drowning franchise.
Nonsense-packed, turbo-charged mayhem.
A little Hart and a big Johnson save an otherwise mundane comedy.
Disaster flicks are surprisingly difficult to get right. As simple as you may think it is, it has to be just right to keep our attention. Look at The Day After Tomorrow; special effects were great, but the story was a bit dull and the film itself got boring in its second act. How about 2012; special effects were fantastic, but the cast and also the story just weren’t right and it felt more like a mockery of the 2012 theory rather than a decent disaster movie. However, I’m glad to be able to say that after viewing San Andreas, I’m very pleased.
