Goofs

The height of the tsunami varies drastically within the space of only a few miles. It easily topples road level on the Golden Gate Bridge, which is 220 feet above the water, but only barely hits the 10th floor of the office building where Blake, Ben & Ollie seek shelter (which appears to be in San Francisco's Financial District, most of which sits only a few feet above sea level).

The end credits scroll with a bend at the top and bottom of the screen, as though they are on a rotating seismograph drum. Seismic lines, increasing in intensity, can be seen on the left side of the frame. See more »

Big Dumb America
26 August 2015 | by Rob-O-CopSee all my reviews

Hilariously dumb and manipulative, it's entertaining on that level alone, although scary in that it's so boarder line that you can't be sure the movie was made with tongue anywhere near cheek, I'm inclined to think not. That this movie is serious, that America needs to feel like a scared kitten rescued by a big stack of muscles. That stack of muscles is Dwayne Johnson and it's hard not to love him. He's kinda good in this, I like him, even when he's part of this manipulative propaganda. The special effects were nice. it kinda flowed, sort of, I guess, lots of plot holes but why bother looking for them when the iq level they're aiming this at is so low you're not supposed to notice. The cheesy flag at the end gives you another good piece of cheese to choke on. If we're going to go down we might as well go down stupid.
