What to know

critics consensus

San Andreas has a great cast and outstanding special effects, but amidst all the senses-shattering destruction, the movie's characters and plot prove less than structurally sound. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

A seemingly ideal day turns disastrous when California's notorious San Andreas fault triggers a devastating, magnitude 9 earthquake, the largest in recorded history. As the Earth cracks open and buildings start to crumble, Ray Gaines (Dwayne Johnson), an LAFD search-and-rescue helicopter pilot, must navigate the destruction from Los Angeles to San Francisco to bring his estranged wife (Carla Gugino) and their only daughter (Alexandra Daddario) to safety.

    A exciting and well filmed disaster movie starring Dwayne Johnson who always engages the audience. Character development is not it's strong point but it is watchable keeps you on the edge of your seat. 04-18-2020

    I have never been a fan of the Disaster genre, I don't seem to be able to take much more away from it than visual noise. I was hoping that the combined might of Alexandra Daddario and The Rock would be enough to turn me around on San Andreas, alas, it was not to be.

    Entertaining but overall somewhat fake-looking catastrophe movie. Somehow the film fails to entirely grasp the atmosphere of places like Hoover dam or San Francisco, the special effects often do not look like actual places. Sure, the destruction is impressive, but the story is so shallow, full of coincidences and sheer luck, it's silly. At least The Rock makes for a convincing leading man.

    There's not much to expect from movies like this, and I think having The Rock star in them is a dead giveaway that it's going to be pretty bad. San Andreas started out decently, but quickly gave in to just about every single Hollywood cliche in the books. Bad acting, a disaster movie love story, and worst of all cringe-worthy exposition. The only thing noteworthy is the special effects, but I'm sure you can find the best bits on YouTube. Avoid this at all costs.
