In the aftermath of a massive earthquake in California, a rescue-chopper pilot makes a dangerous journey across the state in order to rescue his daughter.
- Excellent performance by Dwayne Johnson . He showed that he is much more than an “action hero” , he delivered stellar dramatic and emotional scenes .
- The visual effects of the massive earthquake were simply incredible .
- The movie was a bit predictable .
Emma: What do we do now?
Ray: We rebuild.
Lawrence Hayes: The Earth will literally crack and you will feel it on the East Coast.
In the midst of Superhero movies , big franchises , remakes and movie based on popular books , comes a riveting movie about the largest earthquake of all time that hits the state of California. But San Andreas is much more deeper than that , it is about a Los Angeles Fire department helicopter pilot who is going through a divorce and struggles to save his family from the earthquake .
Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had arguably his best performance in the film . He displayed a range of emotions that we are not used to seeing from the “Box office smashing Action hero” .
The special effects were breath taking , the earthquake and devastation it caused looked so realistic . In spite of the amazing effects , the movie did flow very well , the human story was not lost , which is the case in some CGI heavy movies .
I highly recommend everyone to watch this movie !
