The end credits scroll with a bend at the top and bottom of the screen, as though they are on a rotating seismograph drum. Seismic lines, increasing in intensity, can be seen on the left side of the frame. See more »
Dwayne, I like you man. You've been in some good movies (none I can think of right now), but this... I don't know what to say. This was terrible.
I haven't seen a natural disaster movie since "2012". I could appreciate that movie even with some of its absurdities. This movie was one big cliché: from the ridiculous stunts, the uninjured stars save a scratch, the divorced co-stars, the d-bag new man and on and on.
But this wasn't a movie about a natural disaster, the earthquake was secondary--a back drop. The movie was about the power of love. Love conquers all. Love can stop time. Love can give you super-strength. Love can bring the dead back to life.
