Remembering the devastation unleashed by the eruption of Mount St. Helens, I found this movie compelling and largely believable.
½ March 3, 2017
A dumb waste of time, that has bad acting and makes no sense.
½ January 22, 2017
Unoriginal, predictable, bad graphics, but good suspense and interesting.

Likely to be the most ridiculous of the late 90s disaster movies - and next to Armageddon, that's a real achievement - Dante's Peak does succeed at producing likeable leads and truly guilty-pleasure worthy status... but other than that, the vast amount of cliché is nothing to be proud of. But do we really care?
Verdict: B-

Saw it In 9th Grade And it was fun

The brainier of the two volcano movies of 1997. I thought it was okay, nothing special though. Strange that after 20 years, RT has failed to aquire a critical consensus on this movie.

No matter how many times I see this film is a remedy for sleeplessness and not because of the subject matter as much as the attempted plot with questionable acting.

Great exciting adventure movie

I advise anyone who doesn't like this movie (the best volcano movie ever made) to rewatch it as a 13-year-old kid.

I really enjoyed the movie as a whole.

This is one of the better "disaster films" out there. It is nice because it isn't on a large worldwide scale, but focuses on a small town laying next to a long dormant volcano just named "2nd Most Desirable Place to Live in America" and a volcano expert discovers the volcano may be waking up. The script is very well written and both Hamilton and Brosnan turn in great performances. The action is good and the visuals are great. Underrated film.

An underrated disaster movie. It really works, despite using the "Jaws" blueprint.

The only legitimately good volcanic disaster movie I could ever recommend anyone.

It does a decent job of tightening the suspense for the first hour. I know disaster movies don't review very well, but if you just accept what it is going in and cast unnecessarily high expectations aside, you can have a good time. That's the case here.
