  • A real movie disaster.

  • To see Borgnine and Meredith's talent been wasted in such a way is really disappointing. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • The eruption, when it finally comes, is a wonderfully cheesy amalgam of wobbly back projection, bathtub tidal wave and scared expressions from the cast. It's not as hilariously awful as Swarm or Meteor, though, which is a pity.

  • ...starts running out of entertainment value pretty early and continues on fumes until it sputters to a close.

  • Appalling.

  • With cheesy special effects (even the volcano isn't convincing, considering the film cost $20 million) and a hole-ridden script, this film offers precious little to like.

Audience Reviews for When Time Ran Out

  • Oct 13, 2010
    Dumb unbelievable disaster movie from the end of that cycle that inexplicably stars some of the biggest stars of the 70's. Everybody seems pretty disengaged and it's sad to see William Holden once so vital and charismatic a burnt out shell, alcoholic and rather haunted. The special effects are laughably bad and the whole thing moves at a snail's pace.
