Awful disaster movie that combined the worst elements of soap opera with special effects (bad matte paintings and the ridiculous "Sensurround")--featuring an "all-star" cast that should have stayed home and waited for a real earthquake.

One of those big-budget splashy special effects disaster movies.

Not the greatest Disaster movie of the period, but still a fairly entertaining one.

Silly plot, one-dimensional characters, but lots of stars (Charlton Heston, Ava Gardner) and some good, Oscar-winning special effects

Mark Robson's Earthquake is an excellent dramatic exploitation extravaganza, combining brilliant special effects with a multi-character plot line which is surprisingly above average for this type film.

The special effects are of a high order as Los Angeles is razed, so it is unfortunate that the same intelligent attention is not extended to either script or direction.

For those who have a soft spot for calamity pictures, there's a sense of ritual cleansing afterward. And for some reason, it also made me hungry.
