OK, so this might be a "B" movie. A Saturday matinee disaster film. The script and acting was better with 'Dante's Peak', but the special effects here are quite good and New Zealand humor abounds (Dante's Peak took itself too serious). The science is somewhat more respectful than the earlier title. The big winner is that it was filmed in New Zealand (Auckland and the Waitakere Ranges) with excellent photography and it was made for far less money. New Zealand continues to put out low budget and gradually better quality movies that will help keep New Zealand film crews and actors busy. This is one such film that is worth a viewing, so long as you are willing to laugh, while riding along and through some great scenery.
