    Decent disaster movie with questionable picture quality, but significantly better sound. - Erik Nilsson Ranta

    As you can see, most of the ingredients from the 70s nature's-revenge movies are crowded together here, and if you at least occasionally manage to disregard their simple and stupid character, a slightly pleasant, nostalgic feeling can occur for a total of five minutes. The rest of the time can be spent recovering a completely different feeling, the one you had in your butt when the movie started.
