    With its fake-looking technology and empty characters, Volcano eventually becomes as obvious as its what-if premise. show more

    In fact, this is one of the best pure disaster movies ever made (not that it has much competition). Congratulations to director Mick Jackson for a job well done. show more

    This disaster film has action from the get-go; but its awesome special effects hide a laughably corny plot, and for a picture about terror from the depths, its characters are ridiculously shallow. show more
