½ star out of 4

A disaster movie starring Pierce Brosnan and Linda Hamilton A UNIVERSAL PICTURE

Now, this may sound like a bad joke, but I'll say it anyway. This film is a "disaster." Ha ha, etc. As with any disaster movie, the plot is frankly pitiful, the acting is terrible, the script is naff, and theres no charecter development at all. But the worse thing is, not even the speacil effects are terribly exciting.

The 'plot' centres around a town called, of course, 'Dantes Peak' And Dantes Peak has a nice big volcano in the background just waiting to erupt. Pierce Brosnan knows this of course, but when the tells the council...guess what! one believes him except the (female) mayor. But, of course, the volcano erupts, and Brosnan must go around rescuing the mayor, her child, and the aunt who refuses to budge from the volcano because it 'isn't going to erupt!'

Of course, before the volcano erupts, the movie tries to build charecter, and a bit of story, but as soon as it does erupt, this is thrown down the drain.

Quite frankly, this has to be one of the worse movies I've seen for a long time. My advice...AVOID IT LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!
