It’s been a while since I saw a disaster movie and that’s because I grew tired of them, from the rather terrible Day after Tomorrow to Twister the genre has certainly been explored and exploited. Well once again we are going to look at what not to do when living on the largest fault line on earth, only this time the movie will star Dwayne Johnson.In fact this is Johnson’s second time collaborating with director Brad Peyton’s and producer Beau Flynn, the first movie being the awful Journey 2: The Mysterious Island. Let’s hope this collaboration doesn’t sink.
So what happens? Well the Big One finally hits. San Andreas decides it’s time to go postal and an earthquake measuring 9 on the Richter scale bounces the locals about. Don’t worry, that’s about as realistic as the premise gets. Have a watch of the trailer and see what I mean.
So… boats travelling vertically up a tidal wave. SURE! Still it looks like a whole heap of fun and enough CGI involvement to drown you. San Andreas also stars Carla Gugino (Night at the Museum), Alexandra Daddario (True Detective), Ioan Gruffudd (Fantastic Four),and Paul Giamatti (Cinderella Man). San Andreas will crack open in both 2D and 3D 29 May.
