A satisfyingly smart action thriller, The Quake delivers plenty of nail-biting tension without sacrificing character development or common sense.

Should be required viewing for all of today's Hollywood franchise jockeys. It shows you how to make one of these things without sacrificing your characters' souls (or your own, for that matter).
For the more open-minded, The Quake offers visceral thrills.
There are fewer special effects shots than we'd see in a Hollywood version, but they are shrewdly deployed and suitably unsettling.
The Quake isn't your standard catastrophe drama, even if it does leave viewers shaking in their boots.
It's just intelligent and serious enough to give you your escapist cake - deluxe popcorn perils in all their big-screen glory - without making you eat the familiar guilt of empty-calorie overload.
Joner is a capable actor, but he's required here to remain for such a long time in a one-note condition of mental fragility that our sympathy for the character starts to give way to exasperation.
As a disaster movie, The Quake does everything you need and expect with considerably less fuss than many of its genre stablemates.
Following up the blockbuster hit that was The Wave, The Quake repeats a lot of the same beats assuming it'll be another sure-fire success but ultimately suffers from a mild case of sequelitis.
The reason to watch the film is the excellent cinematography and awe-inspiring effects.
An enjoyable film that constructs a hero with cunning and that makes even the most impactful scenes have a fallible and human anchor. [Full Review in Spanish]
A natural disaster with an attractive Nordic landscape guarantees a great film. [Full Review in Spanish]
The visual and sound effects are impressive. [Full review in Spanish]
