As seen on UniMás (& Syfy), this film covers the usual plot basics & under-developed cast of a disaster movie. But the CGI in this particular film is lame & laughable, featuring non-graphic lava deaths that's acceptable for 3rd graders to watch (& they'd be LOL, likely). The special effects, such as a volcano in Yellowstone, look less authentic than any PhotoShopped nudity on your favorite "chaste" celebrity.

I own this on DVD in a five movie pack along with:
* AVH: Alien vs. Hunter (2007)
* Lava Storm (2008)
* Nuclear Hurricane (2010)
* Solar Destruction aka Solar Flare (2008)

Goofy fun, worth a look if you like low-budget diaster movies.
As dumb and as far-fetched as this one is, it is very entertaining, never too slow or boring.

This was Crap with a capital C - the special effects were pathetic, I wonder if it was done on a PC with some basic home video editing software lol...
This was Hollywood at its best at being corny, way over the top for how world wide geology works - example, they blow up underwater volcanoes in the middle of the oceans and immediately lava from volcanoes in Yellowstone National Park stops then everyone dances with joy... oh please...

** (out of four)

A series of volcanoes begin errupting around the world. This low-budget disaster movie is pretty routine and the effects only make it sillier.

This is a good ok movie.Only that it kinda needed some help on the effects.

Horrible effects that don't match up to whats actually happening on screen, long conversations with not much to do with the plot of the movie with a ending that results in a underwater battle against the earth.

High points...Amy Jo Johnsons acting ability.

This is a great movie.ONly it needed a little better effects.
½ June 26, 2008
a star just to say these special effects are truly trashily rubbish :D it's so funny and so... LOL :) the second half just because it deserved half a star for the totally absurd plot. how come Rome is destroyed by Etna and Vesuvio????????? that's so stupid.

um, the special effects were shit. it showed "lava" flowing, and someone would step in, and then fall as a result of their foot melting off, and say "ah" as they fell into the lake of fire. it actually made me laugh it was so cheesy. oh, and the actors sucked. i LOVE disaster movies, b/c it's interesting to see what movie writers can think up, how many ways to destroy mankind? you know.. but this movie wasn't worth the hour and a half to watch it

It was so sad that the guy in the wheelchair and his girlfriend died so awfully.

Insanely boring movie, it's more like a boring documantary. The acting is unbelivably bad, especially when the lava comes close to a group of people... did they just pick up random people from the street to act?

Wow this movie was cheesy. Well I guess thats how all Sci Fi original films are. But the dialogue, the acting, and the special effects were all crap. Plus it was so obviously a rip off of Armeggedon, Deep Impact, Independence Day, and Volcano. Poor Amy Jo Johnson, she never got a better role since Power Rangers.

to clich'e not really all that thrilling

½ July 24, 2007
So much fun to mock...
½ July 22, 2007
I found the movie to have a good concept, but it was pretty boring!
½ July 14, 2007
Only one word could describe this movie...HORRIBLE!!!!! The acting was really bad.
December 20, 2006
Pretty much what I was expecting, moderately interesting with generally poor special effects. But, I am sure the budget for this made for television thriller was not great, so considering that, probably not too bad. The acting is nothing spectacular but isn't bad either.
