Thoughts on San Andreas Mega Quake

ThoughtsSan Andreas Mega Quake is the sequel to the San Andreas Quake movie, which was a knock off of Dwayne Johnson’s San Andreas, while the film does do well to show us how the part of the world has been affected by the earthquake, it soon seems to forget most of this as LA looks unaffected with later moments. We do fail to capture the destruction sequences which would make the film a lot more enjoyable, filling most of the story with the science talk and a car, helicopter or person walking needing to do something to escape. We lack the ability to give us something big and dumb, which is what once made this style of movie fun to watch.

Final Thoughts San Andrea Mega Quake bland syfy standard movie.
