The bigger disaster of this natural disaster popcorn movie is the Oscar-winning technical marvel flattens the flaccid acting and writing.
Set the bar for all the disaster movies that came after it. The critic scores seem to me to be way to low for this movie. Sure some of the acting is overdone, but it was the 1970's! Watch and see for yourself.
The best thrilling movie ever made!
Although it is not the best movie that Universal Pictures has ever done, it's a movie worth watching. The only problem of the film, is the story that practically does not exist, but the film deserves merit, due to the fantastic special effects; This is undoubtedly one of the best productions of Universal Studios, because it has the best special effects ever, but a terrible story. Worth seeing, only for the special effects.
Not bad lah for a 1974 calamity picture but needs more direction lo
Sure, the effects don't hold up so well these days, but this is still an excellent disaster flick. Some great characters and interplay between them.
Get ready to be shaken, stirred and possibly even tickled as Los Angeles is destroyed by a major earthquake (hence the title) made over 40 years ago, Earthquake still has the magnitude to entertain even if some will find the first 50 mins a little slow but don't be discouraged once the knee trembler strikes it should offer enough to keep you entertained. The characters are a little clichéd we have Ava Gardner and Charlton Heston in a troubled marriage, it seems that its not just L.A. that is falling apart, there is George Kennedy as a disgruntled cop, Genevieve Bujold as a single mom, Victoria Principle as a young woman who attracts the men and whole host of other actors who were famous during the 70's. The special effects range from good to laughable, just remember this was before cgi and the scenes where we see the skyline wibble and wobble are still quite impressive to this day as is the post quake action. So if you don't mind your action, flared, bell bottomed and campy this 1970s blockbuster one of the best, biggest and least disastrous disaster movies of its time, could be the film for you.
Even the first ever massive disaster movie is a disaster.
Entertaining disaster movie that doesn't shy away from the impact of the event. Aside from Ava Gardner laughingly cast as Lorne Greene's daughter, this is full on thrills and spills once you get past the drama.
To help your family cope during and after future inescapable earthquakes, you should establish, update, or maintain your own earthquake preparedness plan now. http://www.whatcausesearthquakes.com/where-do-most-earthquakes-occur.htm
