"oh my god"

Everyone is saying this constantly, the female actors in this movie were trash, the daughter doing her panic in the car was horrible, the mother as well was pretty trash, though Dwane had some very powerful scenes, if you can ignore the female cast members dragging the movie down it can be somewhat enjoyable.

The Asian guy can't just die though, needs to save a kid and be a hero, bet he would have never done the scene if they just killed him off.

Exactly what you expect, but better written than normal, and with exceptional effects.
Verified purchase
San Andreas knows exactly what people are expecting from a big, high-budget disaster movie, and manages to give us a lot of what we're expecting, but has been written well enough to play with our expectations here and there. An example is the opening sequence, where everything that should cause a disaster is almost comically sidestepped, and it's actually something we don't expect that triggers the first bout of heroics.
Johnson is his usual charismatic self, showing that a combination of sheer screen presence and a convincing ability to convey emotion have justifiably kept him in the A(maybe B)-List. Barring a couple of stray 'Brits' who feel wooden, Ioan Gruffudd, and a slightly over-the-top scientist played by Paul Giamatti, everybody else gives good performances and gets fun dialogue. The build up of tension is handle with aplomb, and although there is a lot of destruction and big-scale action, they remember that the tension of the build-up matters just as much. There's also a pleasing attention to detail, with swathes of junk and detritus floating in the harbour water after a quake.
Some elements are a little too absurd (one helicopter trick would never be attempted by a Rescue crew for fear of killing everybody at the scene) and a film that's thus far chosen to be better-written than normal introduces a cringe-worthy 'American Flag' moment near the end that really wasn't needed, but it's a cut above normal disaster thrillers, and stunningly executed. A big part of that comes from watching it in 3D, where it feels more dangerous and immediate. We were constantly gripping the seat with tension, and the CGI remains excellent and comes spectacularly to life. Well worth viewing.

San Francisco on a Baaaad Day - well worth a watch
Verified purchase
Pure escapism entertainment, its not some serious Hollywood Blockbuster nor is it designed to be, deal with it dont moan. For all that its actually a decent "B" Movie, and well (well) worth settling down with on a wet or slow day. The good guys won through of course, but hey its a "B Movie" so you knew that already. The trick is how they won, and for that you'll have to watch it lol .... Decent enough Disaster Movie focusing close in on the activities of a family and close friends, as what is left of San Francisco goes for a swim ....., worth a watch.
Enjoy :)

A manly man`s movie. Pretty good.
Verified purchase
I avoided this movie for a looong time, expecting rubbish, but it turned out better than I expected. I mean it`s a typical disaster movie with brave men generally doing manly brave things as many men do at such times- like rescuing hapless ladies- and kids. Of course, it has the Rock, and ya can`t get much more manlier than that!

Even buildings fell down in a realistic manly way and not in a weird flat unexplainable pancake manner!

downloaded okay to store on my tablet. Ignore mixed reviews which are off putting. seemed better made than old disaster movies. Just demonstrates and displays what impact a actual earthquake of this magnitude can inflict on anywhere in just a instant. Decent tyoe of movie with gripping,intense scenes,very enthralling,visual effects sequences are superb,fine cast fit in,storyline okay

Action, suspense and drama...all in one.

I'm not a film critic nor would I ever want to be. I'm someone who, depending on my mood, may prefer something of a different genre on any given day. I'm the same with music - different playlists for different moods.

I envy you if you are watching this film for the first time. It is a roller coaster ride of non stop action from start to finish. The graphics are amazing and the emergency information is useful although I hope we never have to in a situation to put it to use. It certainly makes you appreciate the emergency services.

So...if you're at a loose end, and would like to watch a film that is fairly easy viewing, strap in, grab the popcorn and press PLAY.

Good popcorn munching fun in typical disaster movie format

It was a perfectly good movie for a Saturday night where I didn't need to engage the brain too much and of course, Dwayne the Rock Johnson saves the day. CGI was pretty good mostly, although one or two shots it was a bit OTT or fake looking.

Casting was mixed bag: Dwayne is just a very affable kind of actor, his wife was ok and the team at Caltech were believable and Ioan Gruffudd was an inspired move, but Kylie Minogue was just ewww and the fake English accents of the boys were cringeworthy at times.

This film is far fetched nonsense but enjoyable. There is an earthquake along the San Andreas fault of the title, and utter chaos results. All the buildings fall down as does the dam and the Golden Gate bridge. Then there is a tsunami. Frankly I was waiting for the four Horseman of the Apocalypse. There is a note on the trivia that says earthquakes along the San Andreas would not cause a tsunami in the Pacific Ocean due to where the fault is. Wayne Johnson then saves the day. Give it a go but do not expect realism.
