The visuals were decent – for 1990’s CGI, and I can live with that, but the story, especially the dialogue, was too cliched and overly melodramatic. Even at a mere 89 min runtime, I got bored with the long dragged out and mostly unnecessary scenes. It was just the same cliched and predictable “stretched out to the max” scene after scene. The entire bridge crossing scene felt like it was 20 mins long, and you can easily predict what will happen each step of the way. This entire film could’ve easily been chopped down to a 20 min short film, and it would’ve been much more enjoyable. The casting and performances were ok for the most part, some too cheesy and forced for my liking. There are much better disaster films, even dating back to the 80’s; this one was overhyped without reason. As much as the trailer looks inviting, the actual film is very lame. It’s a very generous 5/10 from me.
