Volcano was really ahead of its time and time still hasn't caught up. In Volcano they thought of ways to stop the lava. They weren't going to give up L.A. You don't cast Tommy Lee Jones as the chief of emergency services and ask him to run.

The fairly anticlimactic final stretch ensures that Volcano concludes on a less-than-engrossing note...

The special effects are impressive and the acting by Jones and Heche is good, although their roles didn't require much skill or inspiration.

On its own escapist terms, Volcano dishes up a textbook serving of low-I.Q., high-energy entertainment.

The action, the effects and tough-as-nails Tommy Lee provide a worthwhile thrill ride -- even if the last drop wasn't as big as you thought it would be.

The coast may be toast, but it's the lava, covering everything like a malevolent tide of melted butter, that makes this a disaster picture that's tastier than usual.

More about spectacle than suspense, a very impressive production which is easier to enjoy from a detached distance than it is to get caught up in.

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.

Jones has that elusive quality, charisma, and uses it to full advantage along with his credibility and authority.

Congratulations to director Mick Jackson and writers Jerome Armstrong and Billy Ray for liberating themselves from the tedious demands of believability.

Pre-millennium tension is still the best explanation for the recent tidal wave of disaster movies--which hasn't made it any less boring.
